Happy New Year! Time for your home to greet 2021 in style

Shopping locally is easier – and more affordable – than ever

January is a time for new beginnings, a time to shake off the dust of the last year and welcome the new.

And, since the darker, wetter days are still keeping many of us indoors, it’s also the time we cast an eye around our homes – what improvements can we make here to provide a fresh start?

If you dream of greeting 2021 with new furnishings, one local team is making it easier than ever.

Throughout January, Coombs Junction Furniture & Mattress’s Monster Sale lets you welcome 2021 into your home in style.

With Monster tags showcasing up to 75 per cent off regular priced furniture on the showroom floor, find savings for virtually every room:

  • Sales in every department
  • Scratch ‘n dent items (as is)
  • U Built It
  • One-of-a-kind
  • Discontinued products and clear-outs

Local matters

If 2020 showed us anything, it was also the value of local – local communities coming together and neighbours helping neighbours. It also underscored the importance of supporting local businesses, suppliers and manufacturers.

It’s a message Coombs Junction Furniture owner Parry Gallagher takes to heart – and has since opening his business 12 years ago. Today, he boasts one of the largest selections of BC- and Canadian-made furnishings on the Island.

“Without support from our friends and neighbours throughout the mid-Island, we wouldn’t be celebrating our 12th year, and without all of us appreciating the value of ‘local,’ manufacturers like Stylus couldn’t have continued building quality sofas from here in BC for more than 60 years,” notes Parry, who himself shares more than 30 years of valuable experience with customers.

Other sought-after British Columbia names you’ll find throughout the store include Clean Line Designs, Vancouver’s Elite, Delta’s Winner’s Only and Surrey’s Purba and Amax lines.

Notable Canadian brands include Woodtech, Sealy and others. With so much to choose from, shopping locally really is possible.

Greet 2021 in style

With the Monster Sale continuing through Jan. 30, Parry, Scott and the Coombs Junction Furniture team invite you to launch into the new year with a fresh outlook – one that begins at home!

Visit Coombs Junction Furniture at 2701 Alberni Hwy, open Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and discover more fabulous fall possibilities for your home at
