Furniture prices are flexible and constantly changing. Sometimes (but not always) a retailer will respond to online competition.
It doesn’t hurt to try negotiating a better price than what is listed in the store, but don’t be too disappointed if you don’t succeed.
Ashley furniture stores are not all owned by a single corporate entity.
Different franchisees with multiple stores within a region (or managers in individual stores) may have different policies regarding matching online pricing.
- The price matching policy may not be consistent within a single store for all items at all times.
- The answer may depend on how much of a discount is being offered on Amazon (or Wayfair or other online retailers.)
The answer may also vary depending on:
- Whether an item is in stock (or overstocked)
- The store is trying to hit a specific monthly sales target that will qualify the staff for a bonus.
- The persuasiveness of the individual salesperson with his manager.
- And many other possible scenarios.
The Ashley store price may also be the same as (or lower than) the Amazon price (and of comparable quality) without any extra discounts.
