That means you’ll want to shop toward the end of winter ( January and February) or the end of summer (August and September). Retailers will be discounting their old stock during these months to make room for the new styles. Presidents Day and Labor Day weekends are especially good times for sales.
Although the easiest way to get good prices is to shop at competitively priced stores, other strategies can help. Ask about sales. Look for items on clearance or floor-sample sales. Negotiate lower prices. Consider buying through an interior designer.
Negotiate price . Furniture prices can be very flexible. Start by asking for a 20 percent discount, hoping to end up at 15 percent. Chain stores won’t budge on price but may offer better financing if you ‘re not paying cash.

While different types of furniture will go on sale at different times of the year, January is considered a good “general clearance” month when it comes to furniture. That’s because most furniture companies will release new products in February and August—leaving stores to clear out older models in January and July.
Re: Haggling at Furniture Store (Lay-z- Boy ) Absolutely you can haggle on furniture . I hear it can be marked up from 80-300%. Good to hear that you ‘ve shopped around, and hopefully you have a good idea of the price range for the product you are looking for.
Negotiate accessory prices Most furniture stores, especially chain stores, are not going to negotiate a discount of more than 20 or 25 percent on any non-clearance item (and some stores where you buy the entire room for one price will not negotiate at all).
Evaluate the Frame Cheaper sofas may have frames made from particleboard, plastic, or metal, but a good – quality couch will have a solid hardwood frame—preferably a “kiln-dried” hardwood frame made of oak, beach, or ash. Pine frames are cheap, but they often begin to warp and wobble within five years or so.
Good quality furniture frames will sit even level with the floor. Bad quality furniture will wobble, twist, or creak. Wood on a good quality furniture piece should be reasonably scratch resistant, if it dents easily the furniture will not stand up to much use.
A good quality, inexpensive sofa should cost between $1,500 to $3,000.
