 From modest beginnings, Furniture World has grown to become one of Saskatchewan’s largest — and most prominent — home furnishings ventures, with retail outlets covering the province.

“Our goal has always been to give our customers the best quality at the best prices,” says Kristy Sorensen, general manager of the family-owned venture.

 Indeed, it’s a concept that Furniture World has long embraced, offering a world of choice to consumers at affordable prices — without sacrificing quality or style.

It all comes down to the company’s retail model that has been there from the very beginning: by lowering margins — including overheads and non-commissioned sales — they can pass along those savings to customers.

“That’s been the way we’ve done business, and it’s worked,” says Kristy.
