Clearance Furniture: Frequently Asked Questions

They all offer incredibly low prices, but they are each slightly different. Here is what you need to know about Clearance, Closeout, Outlet and As-Is.

What Is a Clearance Item?

A clearance item is an item that has been discounted. For clearance items, stock is limited; a clearance item is not re-stocked, and once it is sold out, will be discontinued.

What Is a Closeout Item?

A closeout item is an item featured for a low price during holidays and other special events, such as Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Black Friday. Closeout items go fast, so if you see one you love, grab it while it is still there!

What Is an Outlet Item?

An outlet item is a featured item offered at a low price every day. Outlet items are regularly in stock and available for purchase. Outlet items are not limited-time offers – they are simply brand-new pieces at exceptionally low prices.

What Is an ‘As-Is’ Item?

An as-is item is an item that has been slightly damaged; slight damages may occur during transportation or photoshoots or simply from being on display in a showroom. As-is items may only be purchased in the store (they are not available online) and sign off on any damage at the time of purchase.

Can I Return a Clearance Item?

Yes, you can return a clearance item – in fact, you can return any item within seven days of purchase, including closeout items and outlet items! The only exceptions to this rule are bed pillows, mattresses, box springs, sheets, bunky boards and as-is items or floor models.

Are Clearance Items New?

Why Are These Items on Clearance?

An item goes on clearance once it has been discontinued and will not be re-stocked.
