Office Furniture Sales
As you decide that it’s time to buy new office furniture for your office staff, you have to look at where you buy your furniture as well as what you’re going to buy. Today, you have many more options than you did before the World Wide Web became a sales place. Each option listed below has its advantages, but they have their drawbacks, too.
Big Box Stores
Here, you’ll be visiting the brick-and-mortar locations at Sam’s, Costco, OfficeMax and Staples. Depending on the size of the store and its location, you may be limited in the availability of the furniture you want to buy. If the city and store are big, you’re more likely to have a wider selection to look at. If the store is smaller, you won’t have the same large selection.
You’ll be able to “test-drive” the furniture in a brick-and-mortar store. Employees have set up demo furniture, enabling you to sit at the desks and check the comfort of the chairs. You’ll also be able to test-drive the comfort of any other furniture you buy, such as filing cabinets.
On the Web
The selection you can choose from is limited only by the boundaries of the Internet. Click on this online office furniture store and you’ll be able to see the availability of the pieces you’re interested in. Visit another online store and you’ll see something completely different. One advantage: You’ll be able to order furniture from a store across the country, enabling you to choose a different style if that’s what you’ve been looking for.
The only drawback is that you can’t personally test any of the furniture before you order and pay for it. While it may look perfectly comfortable, the physical reality may be completely different. That desk you’re ordering for your HR manager may not be big enough for their working and storage needs.
Furniture stores that sell couches, beds, chairs, dining room tables and other items for the home may also carry a good selection of office furniture. Or they may carry office furniture, but the selection they have is severely limited.
Including outlet stores that specialize in gently used office furniture, you may be able to see a larger selection of office furniture that has been sold to the outlet store. While this furniture is used, it may have been refurbished, making it look and function like new.
Office Furniture Specialty Stores
Finally, specialty stores that stock and sell only office furniture are available. Here, you’ll be able to browse through only office furniture. Desks, filing cabinets, reception area furniture and chairs intended for an office setting are only stocked here.
You’ll be able to visit a physical location, check the furniture out and order just what you need. If your office isn’t located close to the specialty store, you can order what you need online.
