Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial-Day

Did you know that the name “Memorial Day” wasn’t used till 1882? Originally Memorial Day was known as “Decoration Day” (something some people in the South still have, completely separate from Memorial Day). “Memorial Day” also wasn’t the official name of the holiday (by federal law) until 1967. Plus Memorial Day was originally on May 30th – until 1968, that is, when Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act which moved Memorial Day (and a few other holidays) from their regular dates to certain Mondays, so as to create convenient 3-day weekends (thanks, guys!). Even this didn’t take place on a federal level till 1971 though, and even then, it took a few more years to implement across all 50 states because some states just weren’t having any of it. So, while Memorial Day is technically an old holiday, several aspects are much newer.

Memorial Day is also a great time to add some NEW into your life, seeing as how it’s the “official” start of summer. New season, new goals, new changes. It’s why we’re having a HUGE Memorial Day sale until June 3rd! Right now, we have store-wide savings up to 67% off! Plus enjoy an INSTANT sales tax rebate, 5 years FREE financing with no interest till 2023, and an instant FREE delivery rebate. The awesome doesn’t stop there though. At Suburban Furniture we know that sleep is power (and sleep = happiness for a lot of us!) so we’ve added a HUGE mattress sale to help make your life even better! How does a Sealy gel memory foam mattress starting at $9/month sound? (Pretty great, right?) And we offer a 90-day sleep happy guarantee! So how about adding some newness to your life during this old-new holiday weekend?

And finally, as to the actual reason for the Memorial Day holiday, we at Suburban Furniture praise the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the name of our country. Their selfless devotion, outstanding courage, and honor inspire us to make their sacrifice meaningful. Thank you, one and all.

How Will You Spend YOUR Tax Refund?

Did you know that the the first income tax suggested in the United States was during the War of 1812? It was never imposed though because a treaty was signed, thus ending the war (and the taxes were to support the war). Then there was the Tax Act of 1861 that was passed but never put into force. Then came the Tax Act of 1862 which was both passed AND enforced but which a ton of people just kind of ignored…then came the Tax Act of 1864…and finally there was the 16th Amendment in 1913 allowing Congress the authority to tax the citizenry on income from whatever source derived. Just a little history lesson for tax season! Which leads us to…

Recliners are amazing – fab, comfy and man’s best friend during football season. They’re also great for summer too, as they’re perfect for lazing about in. Plus they come in all different sizes and shapes! That means you should be sure you’re buying the right size of recliner for yourself and home (you need to be comfortable for that all-night binge of “The Walking Dead”, right?). Here’s how you can find the perfect recliner that suits your needs so you’ll only partially be a zombie yourself after that TV marathon!

First things first, you want to measure your space. Sure, the extra-huge recliners look decadent, but do you really have the room in your home? Generally speaking, it’s the width plus the depth and height of the recliner that affords the most room to relax. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll use the width as the basis for measurement.

OVERSIZED/BIG DADDY RECLINERS
These bad boys measure 50″ or wider. Here’s some examples:

ReclinerWide1

This Zero Wide Wall Seat Recliner by Signature Design is perfect for snuggling up in, with a good book, blanket and cup of coffee!

MID-SIZE RECLINERS
These guys measure between 40″ and 49″. Check ’em out below!

Mid-Recliner

This cutie Casual Upholstered Wall Recliner by Klaussner is not only adorable – it’s comfy! Available in a wide range of fabric and leather upholstery, a contemporary design features a plush seat cushion, attached pub back and pillow top arms.

SMALLER RECLINERS
The babies of the recliner family, these “little” ones measure 39” and below.

SmallRecliner

This itsy fella by Best Home Furnishings is a sleek and modern rocker recliner that’s perfect for a round on the laptop!

Next up is style! When it comes to style, recliners are versatile. Some styles feature one or two recliners, others have more unique features. Here’s a look at the main styles:

  • TRADITIONAL: The Traditional Recliner offers two positions: upright and reclined. It can either have a lever that you push, or you can simply push the back of the chair. These recliners are affordable, the most common and are available in varying options.
  • ROCKING: The Rocking Recliner (also known as a glider) is a combination of the traditional and rocking chair features. It’s particularly great for new moms!
  • POWER: The Power Recliner is designed for people with mobility problems. They are secured to the wall and feature a button that converts it into a recliner chair.
  • MASSAGE: The Massage Recliner allows you to relax and get a massage by being fitted with mechanical parts that vibrate and knead your back muscles to remove the stress. Mmmm….Keep in mind these recliners can be heavy & bulky though.

Once you land on a recliner size and style that fits your needs, decide on some features and you’ll be set! Drop by our website or one of our several stores to see our huge recliner selection. Happy reclining!

What’s the Word on the Street?

THANK YOU on speech bubble price labels

We’re always telling you how awesome we are – how we have the best brands and greatest selection, how our customer service is top notch and our prices can’t be beat – but don’t just take our word for it! Listen to our customers and what they have to say – they’d know better than us, right? Here’s the word on the street:


I recently have had the pleasure of working with Debi Weinstein and Paul Kepler. They assisted me in re-decorating my family room. I want to commend their professionalism and expertise in assisting me to make great choices. I am delighted with the furniture they helped me select. The home consultation was of great benefit in providing Paul and Debi with room size, colors and what I wanted to achieve with new furniture. You are very fortunate to have these two employees who provide great guidance and service.” ~Catherine

Thanks, Catherine! We’ll be sure to pass along your commendation and we’re super happy you’re so delighted!


Martin and Ken, I cannot thank you enough for the assistance provided. I was expecting a simple “we don’t sell that anymore – would you like to buy a new bed?” response, but instead you offered spare parts from the warehouse without any prompting or begging from me. Martin was more than helpful when I arrived – scouring the warehouse for rails that matched so the depth would be the same and the mattress would not be on a slant. He also provided materials to make new pegs and explained the whole process very clearly to me, one who is not an expert with tools and minor construction. I’m happy to say that everything worked out perfectly! The bed is sturdier than before and we have been sleeping comfortable since I picked up the parts from the warehouse last Saturday. This high level of customer service is sadly far too rare these days. I truly appreciate your help and will be recommending your store to all of my friends.”~Pat

We’re always happy to provide assistance, Pat, and going above and beyond is something we strongly believe in. Thanks for the kind words!


Hi Margot, I just wanted to let you know we absolutely LOVE the furniture. It fits great in our space and is wonderful quality. the delivery guys were also wonderful – one of them had been here for our dining table and remembered Fiona. Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service, I’m so glad we were able to come back to you for a second purchase. Thanks Again!”~Kathy

You are SO welcome, Kathy! WE love that YOU love the furniture and had a wonderful experience!


Like we said, don’t take it from us. Take the word of our many, many happy customers. We’re here to make your life a little simpler. Period. So let us. Oh, and by the way – thank YOU, guys. Our clients are the BEST!
