Furniture clearance sales can be used to find fabulous furniture discounts that enable people to purchase high quality furniture for their home that they would otherwise be unable to afford. Such discounts are not offered on all goods, of course, and it is very much a matter of finding what is available at up to 70% less than the original price.
There are many reasons for furniture being included in clearance sales, a common one being that the items have previously been used on display. They may be have been handled, sat upon or in the case of beds and mattresses, lain upon. They are not necessarily damaged but could not be described as new.
Others may have been slightly damaged; perhaps chipped, slightly scratched or otherwise disfigured, and offered for sale at a discount price. Many furniture clearance sales are held at intervals in order to make space for new stock. As furniture manufacturers add new designs, or update older standard designs, the older pieces have to be withdrawn.
It is not generally a policy to offer both the old and the new designs of furniture together. Space has to be made, both in the showroom for the new display pieces and in the stockroom to meet orders. Furniture clearance sales are frequently used as the means of achieving this. It is a common thing to do throughout the retail industry, and many people are used to purchasing cheap sports goods, for example, when new designs come into the stores.
Furniture is no different, and furniture stores in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago and everywhere else in the USA hold furniture clearance events whenever they have a need to make room for new stock. Some of these are one-off sales, while others stores keep the old stock available at clearance discounts of up to 70% until it has been sold off.
There is nothing wrong with this type of furniture, and it has likely never been out of the packaging. It is simply being replaced with something else – perhaps to incorporate a new style of drawer, a new design of leg or even more popular types of wood or wood finishes. These are not damaged or display pieces, but brand new and in perfect condition. They enable you to purchase genuinely expensive furniture at discount prices, sometimes at less than half the regular price.
An added advantage of furnishing your home using furniture clearance sales is that the items are in stock: you can drive away with them or in many cases arrange same-day delivery. The furniture store wants this stock moved as soon as possible so delivery is often expedited. You have no problems with having to be at home sometime in the future to await delivery.
Many people use clearances to furnish their home offices, where they may feel the lack of a need to purchase expensive furniture. What they fail to understand is that they are getting expensive furniture – but at cheap furniture prices. Furniture clearances do not offer substandard items, and many are pieces of designer home furniture normally selling at boutique prices.
You will often find individual items that would usually come as part of a set. For example, you can purchase expensive dining tables without the chairs, because the originally delivered chairs may have been damaged in transit and had to be replaced, so a spare table is left. The same is true of individual armchairs or sofas that were originally marketed as a set, often known as a ‘three-piece suite’. These have fallen out of fashion, and people tend to purchase singles or sectionals than furniture in their traditional formats.
Among some of the great buys available with furniture clearance that can be found online at the moment are Jordan DuraBlend sectionals at $400 off standard price, and a beautiful Mata rattan chair with a 46% discount. There are discounts available on new mattresses, and furniture by Ashley, Broyhill, Liberty and Serta among many other famous names. If you are looking for a specific piece of furniture right now, you can likely find what you want at furniture clearance prices well below the normal price.
There are many furniture outlets online that offer such discounts, and you don’t even have to visit the store. You can make your selection online, pay for the goods and arrange delivery. Make sure that the store delivers to your area before ordering, but this is an excellent way to shop from home and get fabulous furniture at great prices.
So if you are working to a tight budget when furnishing your home, such as is often the case with newly-weds, you can get great furniture discounts by seeking out furniture clearance offers and furnishing your home with designer pieces but without paying designer prices.
