By the time this is posted, Christmas will be 90 days away! Fall is officially here (although the weather may not feel like it yet) and soon we will be in the midst of the Thanksgiving and Christmas frenzy. That said, we thought it prudent remind our customers that if you need new furniture for Thanksgiving or Christmas, now is the time to start shopping. While you may be able to find what you need in stock in our showrooms, sometimes a special order from a manufacturer is needed to get the particular item(s) that you desire. In those cases, it is wise to remember that special orders take time to make at the factory and get shipped via commercial motor freight lines.
As a general rule, special orders of upholstery, leather and reclining furniture take six to eight weeks to get to our warehouses. Bedroom, dining room, home office and accent furniture normally take four to six weeks from the date of order. Please note that these are general guidelines based on our experience. Some manufacturers make and ship things faster than what is stated herein. Likewise, some manufacturers may take a little longer. It totally depends on what you are ordering, who makes it, and how fast the commercial freight carriers can get it to our warehouses during this always busy time of year.
Given the inevitable rush during the last three months of the year, we wanted our customers to be aware of these circumstances and make their purchasing plans accordingly. The staff at Palmetto Furniture Company will do everything we can to get your furniture to you in time to make your holiday season special; however, a little advance planning will help us help you. As always, we thank our loyal customers for shopping with us and we look forward to seeing you in Society Hill soon!
