Furniture Timeline Challenges

Due to unprecedented demand for all products home-related, our timelines, unfortunately, are longer than normal and continue to get longer.   So, If you’ve decided it’s time for some new furniture, the sooner you place your order, the sooner your new furniture will arrive.    

At the beginning of this year, none of us could have predicted what a strange and challenging year we’d have with the arrival of the COVID-19 virus.   Never would I have guessed that we and so many other businesses would have to close our doors for almost two months this Spring.  And when the governor told us we could re-open May 13th, we had no idea what furniture sales would be like. 

We soon discovered there was a lot of pent up demand for anything to make our homes more comfortable and inviting, especially with so many now working and taking classes at home.  And with so many entertainments, sports, dining out, and vacation options eliminated due to COVID-19 precautions, many folks found themselves with more spendable income to allocate to home furnishings.

This has been a mixed blessing for those of us in the home furnishings business.  With a big increase in demand, we’ve gotten to a point where we’ve had to extend our expected timelines from our normal 8-12 weeks to possibly 16 weeks or longer!  And this is happening with both our Amish-crafted wood furniture as well as our American made sofa and recliner manufacturers Smith Brothers and Ort Furniture. 

Hopefully, things in 2021 will resume some semblance of ‘normal’, and we can get back to the quicker delivery of our furniture orders.  Until then, we appreciate your patience and understanding and will continue to do all that we can to get your furniture to you as soon as possible.

Wishing everyone health and happiness over the Holidays along with a return to our normal timelines in the New Year.!
