I am one that won't be sad to see it go. My husband and I, who are in our twenties, walked into their store a few years ago. We walked all around and out the door without even a "Hello. Can I help you?" As we were in the store, we noticed all of the older couples were greeted and showed around. I guess they assumed because we were young, we couldn't afford their furniture. That was the last time we entered that store.

We always found that their pricing was too high.

I can't believe in the times that we are going through that more companies would stress "great customer relations". No wonder people don't want to shop anywhere, anymore. You're treated like nothing special.

I just bought new furniture there and the saleswoman was great to work with and we got a great price on the sofa and chair I bought. But then I am one of those older folks. I just wonder if I had waited if I could have gotten it any cheaper - might as well act like a York Countian...

You are full of sh*t. My wife and I are also in our 20's and were greeted with the utmost respect when we went to Good’s in Dover. We returned to the store a year later and they still remembered our names. Going to play the race card? We are Asian.

This is why people annoy me. They bring race into it when it had nothing to do with the issue. We were simply explaining our experience at the store and why we would never shop there again.

If fact, a few weeks later we went into Zarfoss Furniture in Red Lion which had just as nice (if not nicer furniture) and were treated with the upmost respect.

It's ALL overpriced junk anyway. Years ago, Pennsylvania House furniture was considered some of the finest furniture that money could buy, actually assembled and manufactured here in PA.

About 10 years before they went out of business, they stopped making a majority of their parts, in fact I have a friend who worked there and their job was to sand the "made in a foreign asian country" logo off the parts to prepare them for refinishing before the final products were assembled.

And guess what? Goods and all the other "fine" furniture outlets were still asking top dollar for them like they were made here!!!

My husband and I were in there this past Saturday. Didn't see any real deep discounts. I think they raised the prices and then put things on sale!

We hit some hard times and had to sell our home so when we had to find another place we asked them if they were interested in leasing their rental property and they said yes. They told us that we had almost a 1/2 acre of land with the house. We gave them all of our money down over $8,000.
In two months the roof leaked and we called to ask to have it fixed. He said to fix it because we bought it 'as is'. So we fixed it up. Other things in the home needed work and he gave us permission. When we went to purchase it. He lied and told them that we never paid our rent on time..this so that we lost out on the purchase. He then told us that we had two weeks to be out before Christmas. We had foster children with special needs and we were shocked that a 'christian man' would do something like this and lie to make us out to not pay our rent. He also said that we fixed up the property without permission.( we did but it was verbal)
At this time we had already invested over $10,000 in repair to the house and we couldn't get our down money back from him so that we could leave and buy a different place. We called and talked to a real estate agent and asked him for help.
He looked over the lease agreement and told us it was a scam. He called and asked Good if he would sell the home if it was done before New Years..and he agreed thinking it would not happen. Now looking back he was not supposed to sell it) The realter found us a invester and it was sold from him and settled on New Years Eve. We got to stay in the home but in order for us to make it worth more money we had to fix it up and then we bought it from the invester. We lost over 30,000. We still had equity but we feel very violated since he lied to us about thte property lines and also over 6 foot of their building is on our property. They padded their easement so well that we have no rights to our property. This is left to go on and the township doesn't say anything. They are allowed to break zoning but we are not even able to put a pool up in our own fenced in yard!
The new owner will most likely do the same.
We have special needs children living with us and have no rights to our property. We have strangers walking in our yard and there has been kids on their roof at night which is on our property too. We asked them to take a huge tree down before it falls down on our home and they will not. They are crooks and something should be done! Don't trust them!!
