The typical way to find discount garden furniture is to go to any garden furnishing store and head directly to the clearance section. Once you have made the rounds there, go through the main section of the store and look for “Price Reduced” and “Discount Price” tags. There are some high scale stores that will not advertise “discount garden furniture” even when they have stock, but will simply mark the prices down on the price tags.
Discount garden furniture stores abound and come in all types from specialty stores such as discount teak garden furniture to those which sell a variety of styles from wicker to cedar garden furniture. The key to shopping at discount garden furniture stores is to make sure that the discount is not because of a manufacturing defect that may cause bodily injury or an incomplete set. For example, the hardware that is used to secure garden furniture should be stainless steel to prevent corrosion, but not all manufacturers use this technique. If the hardware is rusted it could lead to furniture breakage.
Unfortunately there are some discount garden furniture retailers who acquire their goods through less-than-desirable means; wood furniture manufactured from areas where deforesting is prohibited is just one example. Especially in the case of teak and cedar, the labels should clearly state the source of the timber.
When a retail item becomes less-than-perfect, the price is reduced and this is another source of goods for discount garden furniture outlets. In many cases it could be a simple as a nick in the paint or a small dent that shaves 20 to 70% off of the original retail price. The same holds true for items with a full price tag; examine the goods carefully and if you find an obvious imperfection, you have a bargaining point that can help you save some money.
Buying discount garden furniture direct from the manufacturer is another option, and probably the best place to ask your questions concerning how to care for the items you are buying from them. The most expensive garden furniture won’t last long if it is not properly maintained. Protect your investment of time, effort and money that you used to find your discount garden furniture by investigating the best way to clean and care for the new addition to your home.
