  • 'Tis The Season To Buy Flooring

    Posted on December 7, 2012 by iFLOOR

    Buying at the end of the year can be very advantageous for a variety of purchases, especially if they aren't your typical holiday gift. Outside of Black Friday, many items go up in price when the holidays approach. As demand increases for an item (like is the case now), there's really no need to mark it down. It's after December 25th when you'll get the best deals on the smaller things people usually buy as gifts.

    Flooring is a little different. When this time of year approaches, most are getting ready for the big day, putting up their trees, preparing for family and shopping like crazy. Their focus is on other things besides new flooring. This is the time when our deals are getting better, because we have to move inventory before the end of the year.

    iFLOOR buys in bulk purchasing large containers, truckloads, and overstocks. We do this because it's how we get the best price and also gives us the ability to offer the lowest prices. These shipments constantly bombard our warehouses and never more so than at the beginning of a new year. And we're not the only ones trying to get rid of extra inventory. Everyone is trying to remove their excesses by the end of the year, and this is our best opportunity to buy those items. This is why we have so many new shipments in January.

    Sorry if I'm boring you, because this is pretty boring stuff. I just wanted to shed some light on the real reasons the end of the year is a great time to buy flooring. Demand is lower, markdowns are often higher and some of the best deals can be found this time of year.

    Does this mean you won't get a good deal in January or February? Not at all. We're always buying and selling huge amounts of flooring and offering great discounts. But today, you'll likely have a lot more items to choose from in our flooring clearance section because we have a greater urgency. When we say it has to go, we really mean it.

  • The Pros Of Buying Discounted Flooring | iFLOOR

    Posted on August 15, 2012 by iFLOOR

    When you're in the market for new flooring, there are definitely a lot of different options for you to consider. When the most important variables for the average shopper is the price of the flooring. Many merchants offer discount hardwood flooring to give customers an alternative to some of the more expensive brands that they carry. Should you opt for discount flooring? Here are a few of the benefits to consider with discount flooring.

    Save Money

    The most obvious benefit that comes with purchasing discount flooring is that you can save quite a bit of money. For example, if you purchase discount cork flooring, you will potentially be able to save hundreds or thousands of dollars compared to pay full price. When you're dealing with a large floor area, and you get a hard surface flooring, you're probably talking about a lot of money for the average person. Because of this, getting a floor that is discounted is often the best way to go.

    Don't Have to Sacrifice

    Just because you are buying something that is discounted, that does not necessarily mean that you are getting a low quality flooring for your home. Pretty much all of the big brands discount their products from time to time. That does not mean that the quality of the product has diminished or that you are getting something that's not going to last. There are some low-quality brands and products out there, but they regularly make low-quality products. If you're buying a well-known brand at a discounted price, you are still going to be able to get a good product without having to worry about the product breaking down shortly after you buy it.

    Afford Installation

    Many people try to install their flooring by themselves so that they can afford to buy the product they want. If you'll find something that's discounted, that might leave you enough left over to afford professional installation. When a pro installs the job, it will improve the chances of you being satisfied with it.
