Save Big by Buying Clearance Furniture
In today’s economy we are all looking for the best deal we can find. Because of this we take steps to save as much money as possible. One way we do this is shopping the outlet and clearance stores. Just because an item hits clearance doesn’t mean there is something wrong with it. In fact, the only thing it means is that you get a great deal.
For those looking to buy furniture, shopping these deals can put money back in your pocket. Clearance furniture continues to be one of the smartest ways to buy furniture for the home. Many people don’t realize the impressive savings and more importantly, there usually isn’t anything wrong with the pieces that hit clearance.
Often stores will change out patterns and models that they display on their showroom floor. When a style is down to the last few pieces the store will transfer them over to their clearance section to make room for the newest models available. If the style and color match your current room and you like it, why wouldn’t you want to save money getting your furniture?
Of course you should to inspect all the furniture that you are considering buying. Usually there is nothing wrong with this clearance furniture. Look for minor imperfections and scuffs in addition to more serious damage. If the damage is going to be blocked by a wall, or if you are alright with the piece then there is no reason not to buy it.
As long as you are looking at furniture, hitting the show room can be a good idea as well. Many big name furniture stores hold their normal stock at one location and ship their clearance items to a special location. If you see a piece you like in the main showroom you can ask the clerk if they have any of these items at the clearance center. Usually there is a computer system that they can use to get you a quick answer.
Floor models are another way to save some money on furniture. Some stores carry a single floor model at their location and order stock and have it shipped to their customers. With that being the case, it is possible to save some money by asking to place a hold on the floor model. When it comes time that they switch out the model either to get a different color, or a different model you will have the ability to grab this model at a fraction of the cost.
Finally, the most important thing to remember about clearance furniture is that it might not always be the lowest price you can find. There are some store locations that mark an item as clearance but it is a bit more than a competitor’s store. Take the time to shop around and look at all your options for the piece of furniture that you are interested in. Saving money is a great idea, just be wise on how you go about doing it.
