Here's my recent experience from 2 months of furniture shopping:

Rosen's - good selection, top brands, pricey

Raymore & Flannigan - ditto

Ashley - good selection, good prices, but lower quality, do a google search to read some nightmare stories about Ashley quality

Suburban Furniture in Succasuna, NJ - okay selection, mostly name brands, bargains can be had, will deliver to NEPA

Good luck!!

Just went to Penn Furniture yesterday for the first time, and wish I had known about it previously. Mid-high end. Large selection (65,000 square feet +). Downtown Scranton on Spruce Street (Penn Furniture).

I'll second Penn Furniture. It can get quite expensive, but they have some pretty amazing things in there. The place is massive, too. Much bigger than it might appear from the outside, and it's great for browsing/getting ideas even if you can't afford to purchase.

We love Butler's. The have a great showroom and the owners (Tammy & Brian) are wonderful people. So accommodating. We furnished our NJ & PA house thru them. Definitely worth stopping by. They are not open on Sundays.

To me butler's is like going to a car salesman. I'm sure they all are to some extent, but they mark their prices up so high just to keep saying 'i can do better'. I just want to buy furniture, I dont want to stand there and haggle over a couch!

Wow, I'm surprised to hear that, honestly. I'm pretty frugal and shop around making them my last stop. They've always come in below VG and all the others. Many more fabric selections too.

I was just throwing the name out there. Sorry you didnt have as great an experience as we have.

The Red Barn antiques in Bulls Head has allot of estate close outs. Classic old furniture, but for half the price of a Raymor.

You may have to have some things refinished, but still you pay less for classier looking furniture. If you like the antique look.

I agree with this assessment of Butler's. I priced (and eventually bought) my most recent furniture at C & O in Eynon, and decided to stop at Butler's on my way home. They had the exact same couch priced $500 higher. I don't haggle and beg for prices to be lowered; if a store wants my business, they better offer their best price from the start or I spend my money elsewhere.

Van Gorder's is located right across from the Wallenpaupack High School on Rt. 6 in Hawley.
