OUR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

We strive to provide a “crazy good experience” to all of our customers. Our vision is to help our customers turn their houses into homes and change their lives for the better. It’s not just a passing phrase or poster on the wall; it’s a belief that’s present in everything we do. For example, our Greece, NY Ashley HomeStore was once chosen as “HomeStore of the Year” out of all HomeStores across the country. This award was given because there was commendable growth, the employees went above and beyond by giving in charitable initiatives, and were recognized for delivering exceptional customer service that exceeded national benchmarks for success.

OUR IMPACT

We believe in making an impact in each of the communities we serve. Each year, we give to various charitable initiatives such as: Hope to Dream – delivering new mattress sets to children in need, United Way, Special Spaces, and other various furniture, gift card and cash donations to agencies in need. After all, a well furnished home filled with a happy family makes us happy.

We take our impact on the environment seriously.  In each of our Preparation and Distribution Centers, we recycle all cardboard, plastic, Styrofoam and other reusable materials, to make sure we are doing our part in caring for the environment. Last year, we recycled 400 tons of packing/shipping materials as part of our efforts to go green!
