For most of us, new furniture is a major, long term investment. If your favourite armchair, or the living room sofa has seen better days, you might be thinking of going furniture shopping, but your budget doesn’t agree! In better economic times, you and your spouse might have decided to give each other that new sofa or armchair as a holiday gift. These days, that may no longer be an option. Why? Too much money, of course. So here’s a way to go furniture shopping and get the very best price.
Most economists predicted another bad holiday shopping season for retailers, across the board. This makes it likely that you’ll see some deeply discounted prices, particularly on some of the bigger ticket items, including furniture. However, if you exercise some patience, you can pick up some fabulous bargains after the holidays. You probably don’t need to worry too much about finding just what you’re looking for, due to much reduced inventory.
One of the best times to go furniture shopping is right after the New Year. Hungry retailers are going to reduce those drop dead prices even further, hoping to entice savvy shoppers – like you. If you’ve got your eye on a piece of furniture that’s on sale at 50% off during the holiday season, don’t be surprised if it’s sitting there after New Year’s, priced at 60% off. Let’s say you’re looking for a new sofa which retails for £1500. At 50% off, it’s yours for £750. At 60% off, you pay just £600. That kind of deal brings a smile to anyone’s face. You get a quality sofa without busting the budget. Just think, for that extra £150 savings, you can probably find a lovely new lamp for the end table. If you stick with the sofa alone, it’s certain you can put that £150 to good use elsewhere! There are plently of stores to visit for a bargain, including a local sofa shop in Aberdeen.
Now, another great time to go furniture shopping is during the month of March. This means you’ll find some great deals, this can be the absolute perfect time to go furniture shopping. You might have thought that there was no way to get that new furniture, but, as you can see, there are some great opportunities in the world of furniture shopping coming right up!
