Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for this very special day–April 4, 2014–when we’re opening in our new building!

Lights and windows and restrooms – on my (go on, chant it – it’s got a pretty good flow!).

We’ve finally arrived!  Feels sort of unbelievable.  What a ride these last eight years!  Though there’s still some clean-up to be done in the dock/grounds area and there’s a door or two off in the restrooms (working on it this morning!) and I haven’t priced everything yet (also will be working on that this morning) – Jubilee Furniture will be opening today at 1:00 p.m. in our very own building which is located at 730 East North Ave. in Carol Stream.  The building is two blocks east of our old location.  If you’re heading west on North Ave. you’ll have to make a U turn where you used to turn into our parking lot and then watch for our amazing signs!  Here’s some additional information:

  • Today – Friday, April 4th, and tomorrow – Saturday, April 5th, our normal hours (Friday 1 to 8 and Saturday 9 to 4)
  • Thursday, April 10th, we’re adding store hours from 1 to 8 
  • So, as of Thursday, April 10th, Jubilee Furniture store hours will be Thursdays and Fridays from 1 to 8 and Saturdays from 9 to 4.  Easy peasy!
  • Another big change is our “holding” policy.  Once something has been purchased you now have ONE WEEK FROM DATE OF PURCHASE to pick the item up.  We have a much smaller dock area and simply do not have the space to hold furniture more than one week – unfortunately, we will not be making any exceptions

Okay – something good – more store hours and something not so good – shorter holding policy.  But let’s get to the REALLY good stuff – which there is plenty of!  For the last four weeks – all incoming donations have been going into our new building.  What follows are some of those donations:

gorgeous trestle table from Room & Board retails for $1,295 – alas the two end pieces of wood trim are a fraction longer than the body of the table (wood in the center wasn’t dry when it was built and then it shrank?) – so needs some fixing.  Still a beautiful piece of furniture – solid wood – priced $650
