Jowsey’s Furniture & Mattresses was founded by Port Alberni’s Jack and Aili Jowsey back in 1947. Their commitment to quality and customer service continues today as granddaughter Jennifer invites you to visit the fabulous fall sale, including a visit from the Ashley Cash Cube!

Did someone say Cash Cube?!

Alberni store puts the fun in furniture shopping

Furniture shopping can be serious business, but the folks at one of Port Alberni’s longest-standing stores think you should have a little fun with it, too!

Jowsey’s Furniture & Mattresses’s fall sale launches Sept. 25 and continues right through October. But if you’re in the market for something new for your home, this Saturday, Sept. 28, is the time to visit!

This Saturday, anyone who purchases something from the Ashley line of furniture or accessories is invited to step into the Ashley Cash Cube for a chance to win “Ashley Cash” to put toward their purchase!

The diversity of the Ashley product line means that in addition to quality furnishings for every room in your home, you’ll also find items in various styles, from traditional to transitional to contemporary, meaning the line really does offer something for everyone.

Providing good value and exceptional customer service

Serving the Port Alberni region since 1947, Jowsey’s was founded by Jack and Aili Jowsey, and today remains a family-owned and operated business with granddaughter Jennifer at the helm.

So what makes Jowsey’s different (other than great taste in furniture and a fun approach to a sale, of course)?

“In a big industry, what really sets us apart is service,” Jennifer says, noting the team is not on commission, so you can work with anyone in the store at any time. And while online purchases might leave you wondering where to turn with questions or quality concerns, at Jowsey’s you can talk to a real person, every time, even years after your purchase.

“We’re proud of what we do. A lot of our team has been with us for years, and they know our suppliers and products really well,” Jennifer adds, commending the pink-shirted delivery team as well for their attitude and attention to detail. “They’re the ambassadors of the store!”

That service commitment extends to their small, $35 delivery fee to anywhere in the Alberni Valley, which also includes full set-up and assembly of your purchase. Removal of existing furnishings is available for an additional charge.

Industry-leading pricing

While some may assume small stores can’t provide the same prices as the big-box outlets, Jowsey’s is actually part of a large buying group, meaning they get the same pricing advantages. In fact, they’re so confident they’ll provide the best price that they guarantee it for a full 30 days after delivery, Jennifer notes.

Fall is also time to give back

While the fall Ashley sale promises to be a lot of fun, October also brings a more serious event: a silent auction in support of the West Coast General Hospital Foundation’s efforts to purchase a Panda Warmer, used to safely keep infants comfortable and warm while providing caregivers and families access to the baby.

You’ll find silent auction items in-store and all delivery fees through October will also go to the Foundation!
