What is the best furniture sale?

Posted by esrade (My Page) on

My husband and I are looking to get a few pieces of furniture but there is not an immediate need. Because this is a fairly major purchase, I don't mind waiting a few months for a good sale. Does anyone know if there is a particular sale that I should wait for?

Just wondering if there is some general industry knowledge, like "wait for ____ because that's when the year's lines turn over and they put a bunch of stuff on clearance". OR if someone knows a particular furniture store has their best sale of the year on Labor Day or whenever.

Thanks!!

In general, major holidays are best - around 30% off.

Right now, most manufacturers have reset their floors with new merchandise from the Spring Market. Floor sample sales are usually around August & February to make way for new styles that will come from Market in April & October. HOWEVER, manufacturers will usually have a price increase of about 4% in January & June, so waiting won't necessarily save you much money when price increases hit.

No way I would buy furniture sight unseen online... especially seating pieces.
