I will be moving to Chicago in AUG. Any tips on local furniture dealers w/great deals on mattresses/sofas, etc? Good quality? I am having to start all over, so the bank account is going to take a hit. Trying to minimize cost, yet not compromise quality.

ALSO, very important... I have a large 46" LCD TV that I will need wall mounted when I get there. Due to the fact that I do not know anyone in the Chicago area, and I am not a handychic myself, are there people that you might be able to hire to help install these types of things?

Again, check craigslist for everything you mentioned.

I bought my furniture from Harlem furniture (my couch, etc) and got my bed from a carson prarie scott outlet in Naperville (which sometimes has good deals, sometimes not). Of course, craiglist is cheaper.

you can find craigslist for part-timers who install stuff.
Or you can ask around. I myself like to do such things (not on a full time basis), so ask around if anyone you know, that know etc etc may be able to help.
Harlem furniture will be good for decent quality and not much expensive stuff.
IF you like you can utilize their no interest promos that run on major holidays.

Sometime neighborhood furniture stores also have decent inexpensive stuff. I suggest you should look around at least 3-4 stores

Definitely check Craigslist, Chicago Freecycle can be good for a lot of utilitarian needs (shelves, office furniture, etc.).

For stores we always check a few but usually end up buying something from Roy's.
