STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Raymour & Flanigan, one of the nation’s largest furniture and mattress retailers, has expanded its Staten Island presence, adding an outlet store to the borough, located just one parking lot away from its longtime New Springville showroom.
Situated right outside of the Staten Island Mall, the store takes up the space formerly occupied by Staples, which exited the shopping center in March. The new retail addition shares the same Richmond Avenue parking lot as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Men’s Warehouse, The Vitamin Shoppe and Starbucks. Decorated with bright purple signage that reads “Now Open – Sofas starting at $399,” the store celebrated its grand opening on Aug. 9.
Founded in 1947, Raymour & Flanigan currently operates 130 stores throughout the Northeast. According to the company’s website, the outlet extension of the brand was built to complement its existing stores, offering a variety of “high-quality furniture and stylish designs without an upgraded price tag.”
Stock includes bedroom sets, sectionals, accent furniture, desks, rugs and other home essentials. Discounted mattresses and box springs are also a main seller at the store.
But the retailer said its discounted furniture doesn’t equate a discounted experience.
“In our outlet furniture stores, you can expect to get the same level of attention and service we provide in all of our showrooms,” the retailer noted on its website. “Our highly trained associates are prepared to assist you every step of the way, from the showroom to customer care to delivery.”
Premium “white glove” and next-day mattress delivery still applies to outlet merchandise, according to the website. Protection plans and financing are also offered at the outlet location.
“In our outlets, you’ll find furniture in popular styles, like farmhouse rustic and mid-century modern, as well as timeless classic and traditional styles,” the company stated. “Our outlet stores are flush with beautiful new styles at everyday low prices.”
