Communities across British Columbia have emerged from COVID-19 with a renewed appreciation for the value of local – whether that’s the grocery stores keeping the shelves stocked or the neighbourhood mechanic ensuring your vehicle will get you where you need to go, safely.
Without these businesses – these people – providing these goods and services, our community would look very different, indeed!
Beyond the comfort and convenience of having these businesses close at hand, there’s the economic spin-off – the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance estimates that every one per cent increase in sales of local products equals 50 jobs.
It’s with all that in mind that the team at Coombs Junction Furniture proudly flies the BC flag.
“A large number of our furniture products and suppliers are from right here in British Columbia, and in fact, we carry the best selection of Canadian and BC-made furniture and mattresses on Vancouver Island,” says Parry Gallagher who’s welcomed customers from across the Island to the store for more than a decade.
Here’s a look at what some of the best of BC furniture looks like:
- For your living or family room, BC-made Stylus sofas have helped homes look and feel great since 1959! From Elite Sofas comes the promise of cutting-edge designs custom-built in Vancouver, while Surrey’s Deluxe Designs is an independent, family-owned and operated company that’s been crafting affordable fine furnishings since 1997. Additional Western Canada lines include Birchwood Furniture, out of Alberta, and Paliser from Winnipeg.
- Recognizing the value of a good night’s rest, the Parry is also pleased to offer BC-supplied mattresses from Sealy Canada, Stearns and Foster, Restonic and Tempurpedic.
- For beautiful furnishings for the rest of your home, look no further than BC brands Winners Only, timeless wood furnishings from Purba Custom Furniture and stylish, contemporary pieces from Clean Line Designs, along with BC-based suppliers for brands like LH Imports and Quality Woodcrafters.
No matter which room in your home or office needs a lift, you can do it with BC furnishings from Coombs Junction Furniture!
Supporting these local businesses – and in doing so providing customers with the products and services they want – is one reason Parry continues to love the industry he’s been part of for more than 30 years. It’s also why he received last year’s Canadian Home Furnishings’ Retail Sales Professional Award for the Pacific Region.
Said nominator Scott McEachern, “Living in a small community, Parry is responsible for everything – display, sales, delivery, after-sales service … I nominated Parry because of his dedication to his business, his employees and especially his family. No one in the industry works harder on those three categories than Parry.”
