US Made vs. Foreign Made

I have been getting many questions on our vender's with, US products vs. imported products and the warranties they hold. Great question! So here's what I found out!

Here at the Home Center most of our upholstered items come from a company right here in Oregon. Mastercraft has been around for over 25 years, and we have worked with them exclusively for many of those. We have found that Mastercraft has the best price and materials around. With Mastercraft you get the best quality and options to fit you. Now, there are two separate sections to Mastercraft. And with in theses sections they are broken down even further. I will give you a short run down.

You have home made, and foreign made, and with in those you have Fire Side Classics and J. Remington, then Monterey. Both hold unique and high quality products, but yet the home made items, such as sofas and love seats, ottomans, stationary chairs, and recliners, have a one of a kind warranty.

Home Made:

In there line of Fire Side Classics and J. Remington that are made right here in the US. You get warranties such as, life time on seat cushions, and life time on springs and the frame, one year on sleeper and recliner mechanisms, as long as you are the original owner.

Also one of the best things about having it made right here is the options you get. Frame style, sectional positioning, even fabric color, thickness, and shag. Weather you would rather have a pattern or a flat color-- it's all your choice!!

Imported items:

The warranties are a little different with this selection. Everything on an imported items has a one year factory warranty. Items are built to withhold normal everyday rough housing and wear, but the warranty is just a tad bit scarce.

Also sofa loves, sectionals, ottomans, and chairs that have been imported are stuck in there fabric, frame style, and positioning they have been ordered in. Most of the imported items have a set look. They may vary from one or two different colors but all the fabric options are not available as with the home made items.

Another thing with imports is they take a little longer to receive in. With imports we tend to order in bulk. In ordering things that come from a further distance The Home Center has to order a container and fill it full for them to ship. If we do not have a high demand for the item we tend to stick with the home made. When ordering right here from the factory in Oregon we receive our products within about four weeks and some times even sooner.

Now don't get me wrong. If you come into one of the stores today, and the item you have been looking at is an import, don't worry. Normally we have stock in each item you are spotting on our show room floors, and if for some reason we are out, we will try out best to get the item built and rushed here. The one thing we hate is making our customers wait for the perfect sofa, sectional, ottoman, etc;...

Now you know the difference between home made and foreign. They have their ups and there downs, but all in all you can't go wrong with a new sofa love from Mastercraft! They know how to take care of business!!

Just talk with us. And please don't hesitate to call or email us with any questions you may have. Believe you me, we have heard them all.

Summer Fun! "Smash Mouth"

Live music, and great fun for the whole familly! Be down town in Ephrata WA, for an event you simply just can't miss.

Don't you just love the summer?!?!


Mattress and sleep do go together, as we all think. However, it is really important that they do go together. If you toss and turn all night, if you sleep to cool, if you sleep too hot, or if you find pain in the morning or afternoon, it could be your on the wrong mattress set. Every mattress and box has a specific design and there is a reason for that.

Take the time to discuss the real reason why you are looking at buying a new mattress. Before you go into a store, talk it over with your partner and yourself the reason why, and what your needs are to get the rest you really need, let a lone the comfort. And, remember the last mattress history you bought, did it do the things you wanted it to do in year 2,3 ect...?

Why spend more moneys over the same amount of time when if, you bought the right mattress first? Don't be intimidated by the outer look of the mattress ask the right questions, and tell the salesman at The Home Center your real concerns about your sleep.
