I will arrive in town July 1st, but I'm only bringing my mattress, books, cloths, and wife. As such, I'm going to need to furnish my apartment. Do you guys know if any decent furniture stores in town do something like no interest financing for the first 6 months, maybe as like part of a 4th of July sale? Or even if not, where should I buy furniture? I need: a bedframe with storage drawers, a 5 seat sectional, a writing desk, a comfy writing desk swivel chair, a 4-6 seat dining table, and one or two large bookshelves. I do not like Ikea or similar stuff that requires extensive assembly. Thanks in advance.
This answer is not tailored to your situation, but in general, Weekends Only has the best deals in town for new stuff. But they are a warehouse style store and idk how delivery works there because I've never used it. BUT, I think the chair, bookshelves, and dining table could be had for a good price there. Check it out, especially if you have a truck or van available.
Edit: didn't catch the assembly thing at first. Most stuff at Weekends Only is self-assemble. But then again a bookshelf or table is so easy, so you might be swayed.
Other than that, my recommendations run dry. I have super limited furniture buying experience because I've gotten by on craiglist, yard sales, and taking stuff from my parent's house so far lol
Good luck george
