Regarding Issues with the Supply Chain
The current global crisis has impacted all our lives in ways we would never have expected. As we spend more time at home, our need for quality, affordable furniture has risen. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has not only disrupted our lives, but the entire economy.
You may have noticed it is difficult to find certain items in stock in all sectors. Within home furnishings specifically, furniture factories that were shuttered earlier this year are now opening, and while they are catching up on orders, they are still having trouble getting some of the raw materials they need. It is causing a domino effect across the industry.
We know there have been some challenges properly communicating stock issues to our customers. We take this shortcoming very seriously and are making significant changes to make sure all customers know exactly what is going on with their order at all times. In addition, we are making improvements to our phone system to alleviate the issue of customers not being able to contact someone. We find this problem to be completely unacceptable and it is the highest priority to fix.
We’ve also made some changes to our furniture line-up to bring in new lines that can be delivered to your home today. These include top quality brands such as Century, Rowe, Robin Bruce, Southern Motion, Stearns & Foster, and Vanguard.
You and your family deserve the home you want. We hope some of the changes we’ve put in place will result in a better experience going forward. We also promise to keep working on making more improvements to benefit you, our friends and neighbors. We wish you and your family all the best during these unprecedented times.
