What are showroom samples and closeouts?
Showroom samples are brand new pieces of furniture that the manufacturer has been using as displays in their showrooms or in displays at large trade shows. Once the showroom is ready to display new lines or the trade show is over, the manufacturer needs to move the pieces on out! Since the furniture is no longer in boxes and a few people might have looked at them, the manufacturers can no longer sell them for the high prices as the rest of their merchandise. So, the manufacturers will sell off the entire showrooms to a single dealer at incredibly low prices per piece, but in order to purchase these showrooms, dealers must make deals in bulk up to $100,000 and 20 tractor-trailer loads of furniture!
Closeouts are the past lines of furniture (think about it like last year's model of car) that manufacturers have decided they no longer want to produce. In order to clear out space in their warehouses for new lines, the manufacturers once again strike deals with large dealers to purchase entire warehouses full of furniture at a time.
The important info to take away from here is that showroom samples and closeouts are all still brand new furniture! The best part is that you get it at a fraction of the price!
Featured on WCHL 97.9 with Sharon Hill on Today's Business!
Established in July 2014.
After moving to the Triangle twice (back in 2006 and again in 2014), Tyler realized there was a huge need in the area for consumers to purchase high quality, discount furniture that will last a lifetime, without breaking the bank and emptying their wallets at the big, overpriced furniture galleries. Why not pay 70%, 80%, or 90% off retail price to get the EXACT same furniture that the other stores are selling?!
Through a couple months of research and traveling across the "Old North State," once known as the furniture capital of the world, Tyler was able to establish a supply chain of unbelievably discounted, name brand furniture and bring it to Durham!
