With our population continuing to rise along with the cost of housing, small space living is becoming a lot more common among young city dwellers and even the older population deciding to downsize. This growing trend won’t seem to die down anytime soon.
Adjusting to a small space living arrangement poses a few challenges (such as moving/transporting furniture). Thankfully Surplus Furniture & Mattress Warehouse has a smart and attractive solution!
Enter the Strehela Silver Sofa & Loveseat:
Mod and modular, the Strehela sofa in steel gray delivers high style for a great value. Clean-lined, flared-arm design and neutral flannel-like upholstery are easy to love and easy to blend, with coil seat cushioning providing that much more comfort and support.
*The clever modular design means each piece comes in a single box, with easy assembly instructions.
You have the option to purchase both sofa & loveseat or individually. When time and space are of a luxury, this gem of a furniture can save you plenty of both without the luxury price tag.
**The seat cushions do require manual inflation which takes approximately 24 hours to fully inflate so give yourself a day in advance if you’re planning to use the sofa. *

There is more to our meaning of "The Surplus Difference". While quality furniture and service sets us apart from the others, our fun culture and high-energy work environment makes it an attractive place to work. We are always on the lookout for energetic career-minded team members and encourage our employees to share their experiences working with us!
Bill Gill is the Store Manager in our Grand Falls Location and has been a valuable employee for two years. We're extremely excited to share his story:
Before Surplus I had a couple of jobs. I started out at Canadian Tire and worked there for 22 yrs., spending 11 yrs. working in the hardware department; 7 of which was as dept. manager and 11 yrs. in the sports/seasonal dept. as dept. manager, and store key holder.
I decided I needed a career change, so I started with a small local business selling sunrooms and outdoor living products. It was a challenge, but I enjoyed learning new things and working with different people. I worked there for 5 yrs. and enjoyed it but I missed the retail setting and dealing more with the public, so I decided I needed 1 more change.
I had seen the Surplus ads for years, and it seemed interesting, so I decided I would like to give it a try and applied. I got hired in May of 2016 and I was immediately happy I made the decision to apply. It was a whole new world for me, yet still the same as I was used to working in sales. After the initial shock of seeing the sales program and seeing things in a whole new light from what I was used to, I could see how the program would work and be very helpful. It gives you the chance to succeed; the rest is up to you.
With all the new products arriving it is always a new learning experience. In this business, as is in life, you are always learning. It is a great place to work, very innovative in its business model, and has a great team atmosphere.
In June 2017 I was offered the Store Manager job and gladly accepted. It has been a great 2 yrs. at Surplus so far and I am looking forward to bigger and better things!!!
We are currently hiring is several locations across Canada so please check out our Career page on our website for all available positions!

When it comes to off-road biking, 12-year-old Kaiden Trudel Whan is no stranger to success! With so many trophies in so many BMX competitions, it’s no wonder that Kaiden is well on his way to championship status.
This weekend was a winning one for Kaiden; On Friday June 29th, he won first place at the Race For Life. On Saturday June 30th he came in second at the Gold Cup qualifier and placed first over all in the provincial qualifiers in Gananoque. Kaiden also placed first in the Kingston provincial qualifiers on Sunday July 1st.
Kaiden is currently leading in the points race for his age group of 12-year-old novices and just last weekend Kaiden was in Milton, Ontario finishing 2nd in his first ever qualifier. With two more victories Kaiden will move up to the intermediate division and on August 1st he will be competing in the nation’s capital and Nepean Ontario, for the final qualifiers for the national championship.

Warranties are a funny thing; most of us scoff at the cost of a warranty at the time of purchase, thinking “what could possibly happen”, or “warranties never seem to cover anything if something does happen” so we smile while declining to purchase the extended warranty. However, it’s a decision we always regret when something does happen, and we hear those fateful words “Did you purchase the extended warranty?”.
According to Forbes, furniture is one of the largest purchases you will make, next to a home, car, retirement and education. And while we purchase insurances and warranties for each of these, why do we continue to ignore the warranty for our furniture?
Now it is true, not all warranties are created equal, and there is some diligence required on behalf of the consumer when it comes to taking full advantage of the warranty. So, let’s take a few minutes to discuss with one of our top DM (District Manager’s) what options are available when it comes to protecting one of your largest purchases.
Question 1. What’s the Difference Between the Manufacturer’s Warranty versus Extended Warranty?
DM: When purchasing furniture, there are a few options available for warranty. Unless stated, all upholstery purchases come with a standard one-year manufacturer’s warranty. This covers anything manufacture related, like if the frame breaks or if the fabric separates at the seams. Surplus Furniture is excited to offer the Total Care Protection Plan, which covers any accidental cut, rips, stains or burns. We also have additional plans that cover springs, frames and reclining mechanisms for the next 5 years. All the customer has to do is contact the warranty company provided in the protection plan kit.
Question 2. Can we purchase the warranty after the purchase?
DM: No. You can only purchase the warranty at the time of purchase. One big factor to consider is optics; if you initially refuse the warranty, but then purchase it at a later date and immediately file a claim afterwards, it appears to the manufacturer that you only purchased the warranty in order to cover a claim.
Question 3. Can you register your Protection Plan online?
DM: Yes. This is a common mistake from customers. When you purchase the Total Care Protection Plan, one of the first things the customer should do is register the plan online. That way all their information is registered and stored should they need to make any warranty claims at a later date.
Question 4. So a customer purchases the Total Care Protection Plan, registers it online and now something has happened and they need to make a claim. What steps do they take?
DM: All the customer needs to do is contact the 1-800 number provided on the protection plan kit immediately. Follow the directions over the phone or on the kit. Once the claim has been approved, the store can look after replacement or repairs of the components.
Question 5. What happens if I am a pet owner?
DM: Surplus Furniture is pleased to offer the 5 Year Total Care VIP Pet Protection Plan, which covers all unintentional and accidental damage from handling as well as damages caused by pets.
Question 6. What’s included in the Protection Kit?
DM: The Total Care Kit comes with the following:
1) A leather protector & conditioner to prevent leather from drying and cracking
2) A cream polish to give your wood surfaces a clean shine
3) A scratch guard to protect the wood furniture against scratches, and
4) Amodex ink & stain remover.
In addition, the kit comes with a detailed protection plan/service agreement number with details on the coverage and instructions on registering your warranty. You must keep that document as well as your original invoice should you have to file a claim.
Buying furniture shouldn’t be a stressful process. Customers should know that once they make their purchase, Surplus Furniture and Mattress Warehouse will always be at their service to help with any concerns or questions. It’s this confidence and trust that we want to instill on our customers.

What you see is what you get…and what you get is simply the lowest possible price on brand name good quality furniture.
But there’s more…Let’s face it--shopping is always better when you know you’ve received the best deal on the product you love. It’s even better when can walk into a store with a competitor flyer and know you are getting more than a price match. With our iSave Best Price Guarantee, shopping at Surplus Furniture couldn’t be better.

Shopping for furniture can sometimes be stressful, especially when it comes to payment. Will that be cash, credit or financing?
Cash requires significant upfront capital on your part, and let's face it, not everyone is blessed with a large discretionary cash balance. Credit is an easy option, but with a 29% interest rate on most credit cards, that $1,000 sofa set now costs $1300. Financing works the same way, the longer the financing term, the more you pay in interest, not too mention the upfront administration fee to set up the account. Rent to own furniture is deceivingly expensive with high interest fees mixed with a large buyout option at the end of the term. SO either you pay the full value today, or you borrow and pay the full value (plus interest) later. But by now, you must be thinking, isn't there another way?
Thankfully, at Surplus Furniture and Mattress Warehouse, we have another payment option available to all our customers. 100% FREE Layaway! And did you know that Surplus Furniture is one of the only furniture companies that offers this...
How does 100% FREE Layaway work? Great question. Simply choose your furniture, then select the 100% FREE Layaway option for payment. You choose the payment amount based on what you can afford and you choose how often you make payments. Complete control. So here are the details:
Control Your Payments. Pay what you can afford, when you can afford it. It's that easy. Most financing/credit card options set your payment amount and schedule, but not with our layaway option. You can set your payment amount and how often you make the payments. Once a month, every week, it's your choice. So if you find you have a bit more flexibility at the end of the month, your payments can reflect that. Or let's say you had some unexpected bills, no worries, decrease your payments and make up the difference when you can. It's that easy.
No Interest Fees. Did you know that consumer debt in Canada has gone up from 3.1% in 2014 to 4.1% in October 2015. Canadian's have an average of $3,745 in credit card debt. So with 29% interest fees, it's no wonder credit card debt is a leading factor in bankruptcy. There are no Interest Fees with our 100% Layaway program. You pay the cost of the item you have on layaway, nothing more.
No Administration Fees. Most financing companies have a set (or flat) administration fee, just to have the convenience of borrowing money. This fee at times, can be several hundred dollars, which is non-refundable. Our 100% FREE Layaway program is just that, FREE. There is no cost to use our layaway program. Simply select your furniture and start your layaway program. The only cost, is the initial (first) payment, which is applied directly to the item you are placing on layaway.
Pick up Items as they are paid for. If you have several items on your layaway, you don't have to wait to take them home and enjoy them. You can pick them up as they are paid for, so no more waiting.
Lock in the Price. See a promotion that you just can't pass on, but your next paycheck is a few weeks away? No worries, Lock in that price today. Take advantage of the promotion today, without having to wait until your next pay check. Simply place the item(s) on layaway, make the initial payment, and wait for your next pay check. If the price of the package goes up, you still pay the lower price. There is no sense missing a great deal today.
