The Great Indoors Closing California Stores

Another “Big Box” home furnishing store is closing.  This time it is The Great Indoors.   All of their California locations will soon be gone.  A similar story to the Home Depot Expo which exited the retail scene a few years ago.  Our showroom experienced an increase in business when Expo closed and we have already felt a positive impact since the recent announcement from The Great Indoors.

In both cases, Karastan, Masland and Fabrica seemed to be the carpet lines that Expo and The Great Indoors tended to show.  The amazing thing is that the consumer thinks that the Big Box stores offer the best prices and selection.  However, our showroom offers over 80 lines of carpet, area rugs, wood floor, premium vinyl products and more.  Our prices are competitive.   And, where we really shine is customer service.  If you read the reviews, I think you will learn what caused the demise of the home furnishing Big Box stores.  Their “rebates” and price guaranteed tended to be complicated and angered their customers.

I like the concept of the 3/50 Project which promotes the concept of purchasing from locally owned businesses.  It shows the benefits of what happens to our economy when consumers shop with local businesses.  When $100 is spent with a local business, $68 stays in the local economy versus $43 with national chains.
