They don't have delivery, so either you get it yourself or you can get the # of a company they use. Hey, does anyone else know of any local delivery companies that will help move a big furniture purchase if the store doesn't offer delivery?

I've bought furniture at Big Lots and it's been fine. The prices are very reasonable.

Hi, I was just planning to buy the bed from them and get the mattress elsewhere.

Thanks everyone, I actually saw the bed on their website (Join - BigLots.com). It's a Louis Phillipe sleigh bedthat looks exactly like what we're looking for, and very similar towhat I've seen in stores including Haverty's. I don't want to get something that's going to fall apart in 3 years - I'd rather spend the extra money to get something solid but I don't need heirloom quality either. I've looked in at least 10 stores and even the ones that claim to be solid wood have some veneer component. I want quality but don't want to overspend. I keep hearing/reading that High Point is the best place to buy furniture so I think I'll check out some stores there.

I bought a similar sleigh bed from Home Comfort which has stores in Cary and Raleigh and others.. Actually, I went to their outlet store on Glenwood. I believe their outlet store is next to Rooms-to-go.

Most furniture stores today sell garbage imported from Asia.

One furniture tech just told me about some high end stuff bought at a fancy store that was built of plywood and assorted trash under the upholstery.

These days, you usually get the same trash wherever you buy. Only difference is the price.

People are so dumb putting up with the outsourcing of furniture to Asia. You don't reap the savings and get junk that will probably be in the landfill before the "easy payment" plan even begins after 2 years.

Big Lots is no worse than anywhere else but is priced on the high side.

Monk's in Raleigh off of 401/Fayetteville Rd is where we got our bedroom set. Solid Wood, modern and they deliver as well as have great prices and service. My parents went there as well and bought a bedroom set and kitchen set. You can also try Heavners in Raleigh or Smithfield. I prefer Monks but Heavners has a pretty good selection as well.

The markup on furniture is astronomical, and not always in proportion to the quality of it. One day I want to go to the Clearance Center in High Point that I've read so much about in this forum.

OK, so where is there a Big Lots in Raleigh?

There's one one Western Blvd, one on New Bern, and I *think* one on Glenwood

I do not recommend the Western Blvd one- its not as 'nice' as the others ( speaking relatively, of course)

We bought a dark-stained sleigh bed from Big Lots a few years ago. It is still rock-solid. It's gone through two moves. We love it.
