Father’s Day Is This Sunday


This Sunday June 16th is Father’s Day. How are you celebrating? Be sure to remember all of the special men in your life who are fathers – your own father, step fathers, grandfathers, brothers who are fathers, friends who are fathers and more. At Connell’s, we have great gift ideas. We also have celebration ideas to help you recognize all of the special men in your life.

Quality time. Show dad you care by spending quality time with him. Plan an impromptu party if the schedule is free on Sunday afternoon. If things are too hectic on Father’s Day itself, invite dad out for lunch, brunch or coffee, or go see that action movie with him and give mom a night off.

Intangibles. Dad works hard, whether he’s still working or retired. Give him a gift he can share with others. Gift dad with things he loves – a round of golf, the movies, dinner, coffee, ice cream.

Small tokens. Sometimes the smallest gifts mean the most. Fishing lures or a new pole for your fisherman dad show dad you care. A new club, bag, or set of balls and tees for your golfer dad will have him ready for summer. A gift card to his favorite bookstore is great if your dad is an avid reader.

Celebration. Nothing says “thanks dad,” like remembering him with the gift of a party. Plan a lunch, picnic or family barbecue gathering to celebrate the occasion.

Big gift. At Connell’s we have just what dad wants! Get him a new recliner or oversized recliner to watch all his favorite sports teams from. A new sofa with recliners built in is also an excellent idea for the whole family!

Stop in to one of our two locations in Mt. Vernon and Newark today. We have beautiful home furnishings at exceptional savings, all backed by our famous No Oops Guarantee.

Happy Father’s Day from our family to yours!

Are You Social?


Social Media is everywhere these days and it seems like every week a new site is popping up that allows each of us to share with the world. Certainly there are pros and cons to sharing, but as a business, we believe it’s important to be a seamless part of our customer’s lives. Social media is one of the ways to easily do that. Of course we share about our merchandise and sales, but equally important to us is sharing inspiration. Find us on the following social media sites, and let us know you’re out there. We’d love to hear from you.


Facebook is undeniably the ‘king’ of social media. We post on Facebook regularly – creative decorating tips, DIY projects, awesome bargains, cooking tips, recipes, inspiration and more. Here are a few posts from last week. Join in the conversation on Facebook.


We tweet too! We know that some of our friends enjoy Twitter over Facebook, so it gives us a way to share information there too. Check us out.


Don’t you love Pinterest? While it can be visual overload, we so love sharing inspiration and ideas on Pinterest with our fans. Equally fun is following your pins! Please join us on Pinterest if you haven’t already.


It’s been a while since we posted on YouTube, but you can find us there. Our short videos are instructional in nature as they inform about our No Oops policy and other items. Find us here.

What social networks are you on? Are there others we should explore? Are we doing a good job now? What types of things would you like to see us post about if you’re following us now? We love the community and appreciate your thoughts and support.
