Office Furniture From Big Box Stores – Should I Buy?

We often get questions from customers asking what the difference is between a “Big Box” store where you can pickup a chair and the products that you can order from us at Office Furniture Concepts. The answer is: service. All lines that we offer are commercial grade office furniture, which are great for business, but can also be used in a personal setting. While it’s easy to walk into a “Big Box” store and walk out with a chair, what happens if there’s a problem? Items that are sold at these stores can break in as little as 5 months, but our products are built to last with warranties. When you purchase from Office Furniture Concepts, we will also handle any warranty claims and can provide you with replacement parts if needed.

Do You Have it in Stock?

We get this questions from customers at Office Furniture Concepts ( often: “Do you have it in stock?” The real answer is NO – WE don’t have it in stock, but our vendors DO. The common misconception of buyers is that a company needs to have an item in stock to ship quickly. The reality is that nearly no-one in the office furniture industry, especially those that have an online store, stocks anything these days. As a dealer, we all pull from the vendor’s stock and it ships directly to the end user.

While this may sound like a complicated process, it can really work to the buyer’s advantage. For example, one of the manufacturers that we work with has 28 distribution centers throughout the United States. For the buyer this means a quick turn around for shipment and a shorter distance for the item to travel. When shipping office furniture from a far distance, you run the risk of damage, so the less a box has to be handled and the shorter it has to travel, the better!

Overall, dealers have the ability to get your product to you quickly, regardless of whether it’s stocked at their facility or not. Happy shopping!

Will Ofconcepts Provide Service for Our Products?

I received a phone call yesterday from someone that purchased an office chair through Amazon. They were having issues and needed some replacement parts. I was advised that Amazon will only deal with their customer directly for 30 days from the date of purchase on any warranty issues. After 30 days, it is up to the purchaser to find help. At Office Furniture Concepts,, we service the products we sell with no time limit. We do the leg work and deal with the manufacturers for you. In most cases, if the problem is under factory warranty, there is no charge. If the problem is not a warranty situation and parts are still available, we will work with our manufacturers directly to get the problem solved. We highly value our customers and strive to provide the best customer service experience possible.

Does Office Furniture Concepts ( Charge Sales Tax?


Office Furniture Concepts,, only charges Sales Tax in the State of Pennsylvania. Current Federal Law only requires us to collect and remit taxes where there is a physical presence. Pennsylvania is the only state that we have a physical presence. According to Federal Law, which supersedes State Laws, it is the users’ responsibility to remit any applicable Sales Taxes  directly to their state for out of state purchases and Internet purchases from an out of state vendor. This is called a Use Tax. This does not apply to Tax Exempt organizations.  For additional information on this policy, we highly recommend that you contact your accountant.

What is the Cheapest and Easiest Way to Get Replacement Keys for Office Furniture?


As people come and go in the workplace, it is a common situation for office furniture keys to be misplaced or lost. This usually pertains to either files or desks. When new equipment is purchased, the standard is to receive 2 keys for each lock. What we tell customers when they purchase new equipment is to take one of the keys and put it in a central place. In the event that a key is lost or misplaced, it is easy to find the backup. Unfortunately, in many cases, the keys are never split and both are lost. The easiest thing to do is to contact the office furniture dealer you purchased the item from since they should have a specific record of what was purchased. The dealer can then contact the manufacturer to get you a replacement. It usually takes a few days and normally it is a nominal charge. However, if the need for a replacement key is more pressing, and access is immediately needed, the best thing to do is to contact a local locksmith. Many times a locksmith can get a duplicate key by just being provided a lock number, which is located directly on each lock.
