Ready for a furniture refresh? 3 reasons to shop local

Refurnish your home or business at this Nanaimo favourite to help yourself AND your community!

The global events of 2020 have drastically changed the way we use our homes and offices. How is your furniture holding up?

Is it time for a bigger couch for family movie night? How’s your sleep — is it time to invest in a quality mattress? Do you need extra desks for your small business to allow staff to physically distance?

If you’re looking to refurnish your home or business, shopping local is a great for you, and great for the community!

“We’ve been in Nanaimo for the last four years, and the Manhas family, the store owners, have been on the Island and in the furniture business for over 35 years. Everyone in the store builds on that great foundation of furniture knowledge,” says Brynne Nadon at Island Home Furniture. “Our store is 85-90 per cent Canadian brands and Canadian-made products, and we have a huge selection at affordable prices.”

How shopping local helps you, your community, and more

  • At your service: Locally-owned businesses are motivated to accommodate special requests and build long term relationships with their customers. Staff don’t have to consult with a head office half a country away before offering you a solution that works in your community. “In addition to our regular styles we offer custom furniture that meets our clients needs, whether that’s a custom configuration, unique colours or a style that suits the rest of their space,” Nadon says.
  • Boosting the local economy: A local business like Island Home Furniture brings jobs to your neighbours and friends, and all of that local employment means more dollars stay in the community as those staff members spend their salaries at the neighbourhood grocery store, clothing shops and more. But it doesn’t stop there. Island Home Furniture also works with local businesses for commercial furnishings, keeping even more benefits in your neighbourhood.
  • Canadian quality: Island Home Furniture focuses on Canadian-made products, so you can trust that manufacturers haven’t cut any corners. Brands like Winnipeg’s Palliser and Greater-Vancouver’s Stylus have great reputations for quality, and use local materials like BC wood, further boosting Canada’s economy. Canadian-made is also more sustainable and better for the environment, as your furniture doesn’t have to travel halfway around the world before landing in your living room.

Ready to explore your options? Browse the selection online at islandhomefurniture.ca where there’s a great selection of living room, dining room, bedroom and accent furniture and Canadian-made mattresses. Visit the store in Nanaimo at 104-2517 Bowen Rd., open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Travelling up island? The Campbell River store sells appliances too, open seven days a week at 1499 Island Hwy.
