Have you been considering a new sectional but were shocked at the sticker price at your local furniture store? If so, you might be one of the thousands that purchase sectionals online each year. There are a lot of reasons that you should shop for sectionals online, and not all of them are related to your pocketbook.
Here are just four advantages to shopping for your next sectional online.
Sale prices every day
Most furniture stores don’t offer very many opportunities for discounts. They usually only hold sale events on the typical retail holidays: Memorial Day, Labor Day, Black Friday, and possibly Small Business Saturday. Most often, those local furniture sales still don’t beat the prices of online furniture stores. Even furniture stores that guarantee “best price” will only consider other local retailers, not online stores, for that very reason.
On the other hand, most online furniture stores provide you with deep discounts every day. You’ll find a lot of options that have slashed prices. What’s more, they still observe the same retail holidays, adding in Cyber Monday. That means even lower prices on the furniture you’ve been craving.
Clearance items provide additional savings
Your local furniture stores don’t provide clearance items throughout the year. They sell all of the previous season’s furniture in clearance sales twice per year. Other than that, you won’t find clearance items at your local furniture outlet.
However, when you shop for sectionals online, you will have access to many items on clearance. These online furniture retailers either drop ship to you or have large warehouses themselves, which means they can keep those pieces around longer and keep lowering the price until sold.
Larger selections give you more options in your budget range
The fact that local stores don’t have much storage also means that they offer a limited selection. When you get your sectional from an online furniture store, you will be able to get just about any sectional from just about any brand or collection. Many furniture stores offer a wide variety.
Of course, you should check around for the lowest prices before making a purchase. You should also check the reviews for the online furniture store, the manufacturer or brand, and the collection in which the sectional belongs. Make sure you are dealing with a reputable online retailer.
Although online retailers have been offering free delivery with a minimum purchase for at least a decade, local furniture stores still haven’t caught on. Most of them charge exorbitant delivery fees, even for just a few blocks. It is easy to find many furniture retailers online that offer free delivery options.
However, keep in mind that you may have some assembly required when you order from an online store, such as screwing on feet. You’ll also have to bring the furniture into your home and place it yourself once delivered.
