Creating a special folder in your email account for shopping deals is an outstanding way of keeping up to date with sales without unnecessary advertisements from companies selling other products.
Adapt to the Seasons
Many office furniture companies have sales throughout the year, more specifically, during the clearance months, the recommended time to buy. Just as the fashion world is cyclical, so is the office furniture arena. The ideal time to shop for specific furniture brands is the period that precedes inventory change. Inventory change happens in the first and third quarter for many companies. That implies that the first quarter (Jan-Mar) and third quarter(Jul-Sept) are ideal to purchase office furniture. However, do bear in mind that most furniture dealers offer monthly discounts and sales in the second quarter (Apr-Jun) as well as the fourth quarter (Oct-Dec).
Furniture dealers frequently have a significant reduction in prices and other great deals on offer on public holidays, namely; Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Queen’s Birthday, Labour Day, Boxing Day and every other holiday. Good quality office furniture can cost an arm and a leg, so taking advantage of holiday sales may reduce cost considerably.
