At Smitty's Fine Furniture, we believe in providing our customers with products made with quality, Canadian craftsmanship. When you visit our showrooms, you can expect to receive an excellent level of customer service. After all, shopping for Canadian-made furniture should be a content and exciting experience.
Whether it's sofas or bedroom furniture, we make it a priority to sell items that are made in Canada. Here are 5 reasons why you should shop Canadian:
1. Canadian Furniture Manufacturers Can Produce Custom Orders, With Fewer Delays
Some people want a distinct and unique furniture item in their home. Custom orders allow you to change the colour, fabric or finish on a variety of items. By choosing a local company, you don't have to worry as much about long wait times or shipping delays. Custom orders can be created and delivered all without crossing the border. And some of our manufacturers are just a few kilometers from our showrooms, like Durham Furniture.
2. Canadian Designers Know Canadian Homes
Design trends vary from country to country. For example, while some houses overseas don't have basements, it's quite common in Canada to utilize that space as a recreational area. Canadian designers understand Canadian furniture needs and they create products accordingly.
3. Canadian Furniture Is Made To Last
When it comes to quality, locally-made furniture is some of the most durable on the market. Manufacturers in Canada have access to heavy-duty wood. In turn, the wood furniture available here is not only a high standard and great design, but it also has long livability. Furniture is an investment, so it is best to buy products that are made to last.
4. Canadian Manufacturing Considers Environmental Factors
A great way to reduce your carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment is to shop locally. The standards in Canada restrict the use of toxic chemicals that are known to have an effect on you and the planet.
5. Supports The Canadian Economy
We believe in helping our communities. By supporting your local economy, you can actually help create jobs and opportunities in various different industries. Currently, there are over 100,000 people employed by the Canadian furniture industry and that number can continue to grow with your support. Shopping locally also helps to add $15 billion into the national economy. When we support each other, we all benefit from the results.
