Discount church chairs on the other do exist and they are hard to find, luckily I'm here to help you out. My name is Joshua Gabrielson, I'm a church furniture expert.
I don't sell you anything, but I do endorse select companies, I do offer great data and research on church furniture products and I can help guide you to the best church chairs hands down.
Today, I would like to share a couple of places where you can get these models, including giving you some insider information that can also help get youth very best deals too.
Timing is Everything In the Church Furniture WorldIf you follow me and have been reading my blogs from over the last several years, then you know that timing is everything.
The worst times to purchase church chairs is roughly 60 days before Easter and 45 days before Christmas.
OK, great Josh but why is that?
Well, truth be told these are the "busy season" times for companies trying to get their products to your church. You WILL pay FULL retail price on anything that you purchase during these times.
However, the BEST timing to buy church chairs for example is early May through October.
These are the times that factories are hurting for business and they are also restocking their warehouses for the busy season. I personally recommend buying during summer break from kids being out of school.
Here's a tidbit to check out.
The best place to buy determines if you can find their secret websites. Take Church Furniture for example. Right now they have a special price on their 18.5" church chair, just $28.99 this summer. They don't announce this publicly but you can find it on their website, which normally it runs $33.99.
Church Chair companies are looking to get rid of stock from the earlier model for the newer models.
But here's another secret that companies don't want you to know.
Church Chair models only change every 5-7 years. When they do they only make small changes like the ganging devices for example.
Why? So you will be forced to buy new models, see ganging devices for example can change in design or size, when they do your older models simply don't connect right, forcing you to buy new ones.
So, if your going to buy church seating, make sure you buy ALL you need for the next 10 to 15 years in one lot.
Discount Church Seating Quality
|18" wide vs. 21" wide church chair, see the edges of the seat with me sitting in them|
I found that just about all the chairs (except one) had similar quality specs, although some were definitely more comfortable to sit in over long periods of time.
Additionally I found that size didn't matter as much either. When testing the smaller chairs like the 18-19" wide vs. the 21" wide, it really didn't make a difference although I didn't sit next to someone.
I recommend that you look beyond quality simply because most of the models are going to have similar specs, designs and comfort levels to some degree.
Chairs I EndorseYes, Church I do endorse certain church chairs models. I don't however make any money from endorsing these products and yes I do endorse more than church chairs within the industry too.
If you're looking for a 21" wide church chairs then I recommend whats called The Church Chair, also known as the model B in the industry.
Yes, its a church chair made in china, but let me debunk your myths:
Its also a misconception that chairs made overseas are bad. Actually 93% of the church chairs made today are made in China, India and Mexico or elsewhere. Even the "Made in America" labeled chairs are built in Mexico and Canada, which technically is part of "America" as in North America because labor is cheaper north and south of the USA.
Chairs labeled "Built in the USA" or "Made in the USA" use foreign steel, foam and materials often by the same places where they are built over the boarders. Companies want you to believe that everything they produce doesn't have a foreign carbon footprint of some type. Not true.
Why do I recommend the model? What about cheaper models Josh?
Good questions and let me answer. I recommend this model because it is well built, has a quality wooden back, it's found in over 40% of the 420,500+ churches all across America, so it's sort of the standard defect.
While you CAN get a cheaper chair, I want you to think about chairs like buying a car. Cheaper car, stripped down model. More expensive chair, more features like card pockets, powder coated frames and much better warranties.
Speaking of warranties, I wrote a great article about extending your church chair warranty for less than $2 per seat. While you don't have to get an extended warranty, I recommend buying one for the cost to value ratio.
My ConclusionFriends, there are over 90 companies offering church products for your sanctuary, most are great to deal with, a few of them you will want to stay away from, but for the most part, pick a quality chair that time and time again churches have chosen before you.
If you have a question about the church furniture industry, drop me a line and let me know. I would be more than happy to help guide you to the right places and give you any insights that I can share with you along the way too.
Until Next time, God Bless~
