4 Reasons Why You Should Shop Locally for Furniture

by Waverly Wilde

“I love shopping in over-crowded stores and never getting my questions answered,” said no one ever.

We’ve all felt the frustration of stopping at a big box store and never getting the attention needed to understand a product — let alone buy one. It’s not a good way to spend your precious time, and it’s not a good way to shop.

What you need is some good ol’ fashioned local store love, especially when it comes to furniture shopping. If you’re not quite convinced that local shops are where it’s at, here’s a few reasons that’ll change your mind.

 

1.    Superb Service

Easily one of the best reasons to shop locally is the customer service. It's normal to be greeted as soon as you enter the store by one of our sales associate ready to help you out on the floor. Often when you head over to a big box store, it can be hard to flag someone down to get a single question answered.

On the other hand, at our store, we are incredibly proud of our knowledgeable staff. It’s our goal to make your shopping experience go smooth and easy, so you can go home with the furniture of your dreams without having to worry if you made the right decision or not. You won't get that anywhere else!

 

2.    Sales, Deals, Discounts – Oh my!

When you shop local, you generally pay less. Why go to a big box store and buy furniture for double the usual price when you could save some money and get the same thing? Stop burning a hole in your pocket and stop into our store to see the hot deals we always have going on!

 

3.    Think About the Environment

Purchasing from franchises and big chain stores can have some detrimental impacts on our earth’s well-being. For example, big box stores are more likely to ship internationally which adds up in money and chemical waste while local stores are more likely to reuse materials and cut down on packaging as well as transportation waste.

How can you do your part? Helping your environment is as simple as choosing to shop at your local hometown stores.

 

4.    Make the Economy Happy

Shopping locally can make your community wealthier. A study found that when you spend $100 at your local store around the corner, $68 stay in the city. Conversely, when you pay $100 at a big box store, only $43 remains. The more you shop local, the richer your community will be!

 

It may seem easy to pop into a big chain store to make your furniture purchases, but it’s time you gave your local store a chance to prove why you’ll never want to shop anywhere else. Visit us today to start shopping local — because you deserve it!
