At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our design consultants are happy to work with budgets of all shapes and sizes.
In this article, we’ll take a look at why the best time to buy furniture is in January or July.
When’s the Best Time to Buy Furniture?
January and July are the best months to buy furniture because retailers need to make space for new styles on the showroom floor.
Furniture stores will discount old stock during these months so they are able to bring the latest styles into their showrooms.
Manufacturers will release their new products during the High Point Furniture Market typically held in October and April.
Then, retailers will place their orders and start thinking about which items they need to mark on clearance to make room.
Shopping for furniture in January and July will give you access to the largest amount of discounts and clearance items.
Best Day of the Week to Shop for Furniture?
Furniture shopping while you have the store to yourself gives you the opportunity to take your time and see everything.
At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our most popular time to shop is 1PM on Saturday. This is usually as busy as it gets.
Shopping when the store opens at 10AM on Monday through Friday is the best time to visit.
You will have plenty of time to browse all of the furniture before the lunch rush hits.
Plus, you might be able to meet with one of our degreed interior designers before they leave for their appointments.
What About Shopping the Rest of the Year?
Most furniture brands run year-round promotions to encourage customers to visit their stores.
You will notice most of the advertisements for big promotions will run around the holidays.
However, many furniture stores will have a promotion running even if it isn’t advertised.
These promotions will often feature discounts up to a certain percentage along with special financing options.
This means you can get a great deal every day of the year by taking advantage of these promotions.
