Shopping at a furniture warehouse can save you money. You can find local furniture warehouses by looking in the Yellow Pages. Many people are already members of warehouses, like Costco and Samís Club, that sell furniture. If you are not a member, search freebie sites on the Internet for a free weekend coupon that is sometimes available for people who are not members.
When you shop at a furniture warehouse, you should not expect the kind of assistance from sales people that you will receive at a retail store. While they may be very nice, they may not know as much about the furniture. So, before you go, do a little research on what type of furniture you want, what styles are available and what you can expect to pay for a piece. That way, you will be able to tell if you are getting a good deal or not. Donít make a purchase at the first furniture warehouse you go to unless you are absolutely sure it is an exceptional deal. It will behoove you to shop around and compare prices before making a purchase. But another thing you must keep in mind is that the inventory in a furniture warehouse may change rapidly. So while you want to have time to shop around, donít wait too long if you saw a piece you really wanted at another furniture warehouse. By the time you return, that piece may be gone and they may not stock the item again in the future.
Finally, if you are shopping at a furniture warehouse, be sure to have cash or a check with you. Many furniture warehouses donít accept credit cards or debit cards. If you really want to use a credit card, call the warehouse before you go there to see what their policies are on payment.
