A Message from the CEO
Regarding the New Provisional Tariff on Furniture
You may have recently seen coverage in the media about a new tariff on furniture imports, and how it has the potential to increase prices for consumers. I want to assure you that we have worked hard to prevent this situation from impacting our guests during this challenging time.
We believe strongly in supporting our Canadian manufacturing partners and we strive to provide our guests with quality furniture to support their unique lifestyles. Whether you buy Canadian-made, or a piece manufactured globally, you can shop with confidence knowing that our commitment to provide you the best value for your dollar remains unchanged.
To help you better understand the tariff and the actions we have taken to mitigate its impact on you, we have put together this brief fact sheet.
Facts about the tariff:
On May 5, 2021, provisional tariffs up to 295.5% were placed on certain kinds of upholstered furniture produced in China and Vietnam and sold in Canada.
- The action was initiated in response to a formal written complaint filed by Canadian manufacturers.
- The complaint specifically targeted motion and leather/leather match furniture and excluded fabric-covered stationary upholstery.
What we’re doing:
Leveraging our strong vendor relationships to secure furniture from global manufacturers with the least amount of tariff impact.
- Supporting Canadian furniture manufacturers by continuing to carry a wide selection of Canadian-made furniture, including motion and leather/leather match.
- Remaining committed to offering affordable, high-quality furniture options at competitive prices, for a range of lifestyles.
The tariff is currently under review, and we will keep this page updated as new developments unfold.
