Are Department Store Deals Really Deals?

If you’ve been shopping for modern classic furniture lately, you may have stumbled across a department store “sale” that promised you’d be saving hundreds of dollars off the sticker price. These sales may seem like a great deal, but once you dissect them you realize that these deals really are not saving you any money.
For example, Macy’s has a Chambre Oval Coffee Table on sale for $299, down from $399. This seems like a great deal, 25 percent off! However, digging a little deeper can reveal quite a bit more. At Ezmod Furniture, you can find coffee tables that are either less expensive (such as the Magazine Rack Coffee Table) or that are discounted by even more than 25 percent, such as the Tribeca Coffee Table – almost 30 percent off suggested retail price). In addition, when buying modern classic furniture from a department store, a place like Macy’s will charge you all sorts of hidden fees like delivery fees, holding fees, interest on your Macy’s card, etc. At Ezmod Furniture, what you see is what you get. Your delivery charge will be explained up front and you will not have to worry about the “fine print.”
Another hazard with department store sales is that they are contingent upon you opening an account with the store. For example, you’ll get 10 percent off if you open up a Macy’s Card, or free delivery if you open up a JC Penney Card. However, with an online furniture store like Ezmod Furniture, you will get a great discount just for shopping with us. Getting modern classic furniture at a great price means not having to deal with all the markups that department stores thrust upon consumers. Ezmod does not have to pay rent on a large show room, does not have to pay sales people and does not have to justify a ton of overhead to stock holders. As a small online furniture retailer, we can offer tremendously discounted prices to consumers on a variety of high quality modern classic furniture items.
At Ezmod, we focus on providing our customers with everything they need to get a great deal. Learn more at www.ezmodfurniture.com where you can find some of the hottest pieces of modern classic furniture available today.
