Waitrose Garden Furniture vs. White Stores Garden Furniture
When it comes to buying garden furniture, doing your research is very important. This is because there are plenty of different materials that go into making garden furniture and narrowing down your choices can be difficult. Here, we’ve looked at our own garden furniture buying experience versus Waitrose garden furniture to help you make informed purchasing decisions.
Garden furniture buying can be difficult, do you want wood, metal, rattan or aluminium garden furniture? Do you want a dining set, sofa set, corner sofa set, corner dining set? Do you want traditional, simple furniture or something with rising tables, fire pit tables or ice bucket tables? With so many decisions to make we always recommend doing lots of research before you purchase. Especially as so many furniture items can look the same but come with a different price tag.
It’s easy to fall for the trap of buying furniture that looks like your favourite set that you’ve seen online everywhere but for some reason you’ve found it miles cheaper elsewhere. This may be because the cheaper furniture is made from cheaper materials that are less weatherproof, less durable and less likely to last.
This is why we opened garden furniture showrooms around the UK. These showrooms allow us to present our high-quality furniture to consumers so that they can see and test the quality of the furniture for themselves. This also allows customers to get advice and knowledge from our team of trained professionals who have all the product knowledge.
This is what we believe sets us apart from supermarkets and online high street retailers of garden furniture, like Waitrose. Waitrose stocks garden furniture from big name brands like Bramblecrest, however there is nowhere for customer to view the full collection in store. Some larger Waitrose stores may display select sets, but it is unlikely you will be able to test and compare each set in their range. It is also unlikely that their staff will be trained on specific product knowledge that cannot already be found on the website. However, stocking items from well-known brands does allow Waitrose to contact these suppliers for knowledge and product info if required.
Waitrose has a very easy to navigate website making shopping for garden furniture very easy, however there is only a small range of garden furniture available compared to our own website meaning that choice is limited.
Whilst furniture pricing is similar between us and Waitrose, we are proud to offer free UK delivery on orders over £50 whereas Waitrose charges a small fee of £4.95 for standard delivery, no matter the amount you spend. Additionally, we offer an assembly service delivery option for a small cost, but there are no assembly services listed from Waitrose, meaning you do not have the option for someone to unbox and assemble the furniture for you.
In conclusion, we are confident that when it comes to researching garden furniture and making the correct choice when shopping that White Stores can offer a better service that aids the customer in choosing and ordering their perfect garden furniture set.
