Furniture First History
Rick and Gail McEachern are brother and sister from a large, rural, northern Alberta family with over 30 years of retail experience between them, and a strong desire to provide the kind of service and value often missing in today’s world of fast foods and disposable products.
They first opened the Furniture First doors on March 16th of 2007, and have enjoyed a steadily growing base of support from local customers ever since. It is their conviction that the majority of their customers prefer to purchase locally as long as they continue to offer a strong selection of quality furniture at competitive prices.
Something you will never see at Furniture First are promotions that claim “Huge discounts”, “80% off”, “Liquidation”, “Bankruptcy” or “Closing Out” prices.
What you will see is attractively displayed, quality furniture at very affordable everyday prices with selected weekly or monthly specials that are very competitive with the highly promoted sales events hyped by our big city competitors.
Our low overhead, friendly, non-commission sales staff and a wide range of sales related services, help guarantee a furniture shopping experience that will be both pleasant and rewarding. We look forward to meeting you, again and again!
Furniture First Custom Orders
Furniture First has now created a custom department that specializes in selling only the “finest” solid wood, Canadian-made furniture (made to order). Customers can choose the wood, the stain, the style and the cover (fabric or leather) to suit their personal taste and decor.
Many customers comment that they have been looking for that one special set or piece for years and have never found it. At Furniture First they can take that picture from the customer’s head and make it a reality and they can do it at a surprisingly affordable price!
