Disclosure: I partnered with Ashley HomeStore on this sponsored post. All opinions are mine.
I was invited to take a special tour of the new Ashley HomeStore store that softly opened at the new Green Acres Commons last weekend. This Friday October 21st – Sunday, October 23rd, they will have their grand opening celebration complete with up to $5,000 in giveaways to four lucky families who will win one of the following prizes:
• 5-Piece Dining Room Set
• 6-Piece Bedroom Set
• 3-Piece Sectional Sofa
• Sealy Hybrid Queen Mattress
To be eligible, you must enter to win in the store. Winners will be announced the following week. You can also follow this event on Facebook here.
There will also be gift bags for customers that include exclusive coupons like free delivery on your mattress purchase, 10% off no minimum and 25% off accessories. And….water and a granola bar in each gift bag for fuel to shop!
It’s been about 8+ years since I’ve set foot in one just before we purchased our home here in Valley Stream. Back then, we bought a comfortable faux leather sofa that we had in our living room until about 2 years ago.
Boy was it comfortable.
The kids and I met up with the store manager, Justin, who quickly greeted us before the tour. Immediately, I loved the new layout where it just didn’t group furniture in sections like most stores. For example, kitchens over here…beds over there, sofas…you get it.
The showroom floor is the newest version of HomeStores with incredible technology and new collections other showrooms do not have. You can actually go up to one of the touch, flat screen monitors or iPads and view the complete inventory from the showroom floor.
The areas were grouped by collections where you would see all of the coordinating pieces whether your taste is vintage casual, traditional, or grand elegance to name a few. Oh my goodness! Grand elegance will have you living like a movie star from the early 1900s. Just follow the banners on the wall or on the floor as you walk through the showroom.
Oh, I can’t forget Gen-Now which is where the kids immediately felt comfortable. Looks like someone really likes this loft bed set-up because he kept returning to it every time we walked by.
What stood out the most was the Dream Diagnostic where the kids were invited to lay on a bed that could tell you where your pressure points are during rest. Note: our mattress was purchased based on my husband’s preference years ago. Not mine.
Houston, we have a problem.
I told the manager that I know Ashley HomeStore as Price is Right furniture. He nodded his head and then went on to tell me that the quality has changed over the years. They once tried to meet the price point of Bob’s Discount furniture and realized they couldn’t match it without compromising quality. So…the improved the quality of their furniture and now stand between the price points of Bob’s (low end) and the likes of Raymour & Flanagan or Ethan Allen.
Not bad, eh?
Come on over to Green Acres Commons in Valley Stream beginning this Friday thru Sunday for giveaways, gift bags and some great deals. You just might get lucky.
