The Sofa

What I would like to know is, why does it take 8 weeks to get a couch?

Don’t they have a couch factory that just rolls them off the line, and when we want a couch that is in a certain fabric, they just slap it together?

Well, my experiences with the furniture industry have left me wondering about a few other issues as well.

  • How is it that JC Penney Home has a one-day-only 40%-off sale nearly once a week? Who would buy something during the rest of the week?
  • Why does Marshall Fields have the exact same couch as JC Penney’s but with a different name on it and another $300 on the price tag?

There are others, I suppose, but for now, I will ponder these questions for the next 8 weeks or so while we await the arrival of our sofa and chair.

I hope they fit down in the basement…
