Tired of beige? This store brings the FUN back to furniture!

Great service, fresh selection, there’s always a reason to stop by this Courtenay favourite

Mark Tardif and his family have lots of fun furniture in their store, Anmarcos Furniture & Mattresses in Courtenay.

How often do you just pop by the furniture store to see what’s new?

At most of the big box stores, styles and colours stay fairly consistent and sales staff are on the hunt for commission, making your browsing experience less than ideal.

But there’s one furniture store in Courtenay that turns all that on its head.

“It’s always changing in here,” says Denis Lacasse from Anmarcos Furniture & Mattresses. “The owner Mark Tardif has built great relationships with unique manufacturers over the years, and keeps up with furniture shows to see what’s new and up-and-coming. He’s got a good touch for finding interesting pieces.”

Anmarcos works hard to be the ‘coolest store’ with an ever-changing line-up of interesting items to browse in the store, and a team of staff committed to top-notch customer service.

“We always look to go the extra mile — the way it used to be back in the day,” Denis says. “We offer free, full service local delivery, and we’ll always do what we can to help.”

Stylish and sensible

One of Anmarco’s most popular manufacturers is Acme Chrome Furniture, which has been making retro dining sets right here in Canada for over 70 years.

“These are the real deal. Many companies try to replicate that 50s style, but Acme has been in business since 1946 and the furniture is the same authentic design and quality,” owner Mark Tardif says.

You can select custom chair and table colours in sparkly vinyl and funky laminate, or choose a dinette set off the Anmarco’s floor to take it home right away. And you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for that vintage style — Acme uses modern reinforced vinyl that’s less prone to cracking, strong laminates tabletops that are more durable and scratch resistant, anodized aluminum that won’t leave residue on your clothing, and foam that’s much more comfortable than the ‘50s cotton padding. The style is authentic, with a few modern upgrades!

Another Anmarco’s favourite is the flippable mattress, which lasts longer and wears better than other mattresses.

“Why buy just half a mattress?” Mark says. “Don’t believe the story that a one-sided mattress is somehow better.”

Anmarco’s stocks trusted brands like Spring Air, Kingsdown and Restonic, who know manufacture a flippable mattress right. Stop by the store to learn more about why flippable mattresses went out of style, and what makes them a great choice today!

Browse the selection online at anmarcos.com, or stop by the store to see what’s new. Open Sunday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 102-364 8th St. in Courtenay.
