Fun Family Fall Outdoor Activities

Isn’t fall great? As the days get shorter and the weather begins to cool, we tend to want to get outside more and enjoy the season. And why not, fall brings new changes, such as leaves changing colors and seasonal fruits and vegetables. With that said, below are some fun seasonal activities from Connell’s Furniture & Mattresses the whole family can enjoy that will get you outside to enjoy the new season.

  • Go apple picking: One great place to take the entire family is Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala, OH. Right now, families can pick apples (including Gala, Honeycrisp, McIntosh, Cortland, Jonathan, and more!), and later in the season, pumpkin picking and sweet corn is also available. Plus, they offer a corn maze and plenty of safe and fun activities for the kids. You can’t go wrong at Lynd in the fall!
  • Take a hayride: Hayrides are a great way to get out and enjoy the weather, and kids sure love them! Many offer hot apple cider, hot chocolate and other warm beverages for autumn’s cool nights. And if you’re adventurous, some hayrides are even “haunted” to add a little excitement to the experience. Click here to find some local hayrides in Northwest Ohio, and other fun activities like corn mazes, pumpkin patches and more!
  • Make a fire pit and build a bonfire: It’s easy to build an attractive fire pit with some inexpensive retaining wall that the whole family can get years of enjoyment from (always check with your local fire department to make sure a fire pit is permitted at your home, and you’re not building it too close to property lines and/or fire hazards). Once constructed, it’s easy to start a bonfire and roast hot dogs, smores and enjoy the cool crisp season with family and friends.
  • Football Friday nights: Even if you don’t have a teenager that plays high school football, it’s still fun to go and support your local high school’s football team. It’s a fun environment and you’ll get to watch a fun football game and watch two marching bands perform.

As the season changes, let Connell’s Furniture & Mattresses in Newark and Mt. Vernon help you with your home furnishing needs. We have exactly what you’re looking for – whether you want to decorate your living room with fall’s best colors or your husband wants to outfit his “man cave” in the colors of favorite football team – with our great selection of furniture and mattresses at unbeatable everyday low prices. Come check us out, we promise you can’t make a mistake at Connell’s!

Father’s day is right around the corner!

Father’s day is right around the corner! We celebrate Father’s Day annually on third Sunday of June. As a counterpart to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is a time for the family to say thank you to all of the fathers in our lives for all of their help. And what father doesn’t like a big thank you from his family and loved ones!

Below are some wonderful ideas to say thanks to the father or husband in your life and make his day as fun as possible.

Make Father’s Day a family day: What father doesn’t like spending quality time with his family? Dad’s generally enjoy doing activities, like going to the park, taking a walk with the family, a bike ride with the family, watching a sporting event with family, or even grilling out with the family. However the father or husband in your life enjoys family time together, use Father’s Day as an opportunity to get the entire family together for dad’s favorite family-time activity.

Food!: Although cliché, the saying, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” is pretty much spot on. Show your father the appreciation he deserves by making him his favorite meal, baking him a cake or cookies, or even taking him to his favorite restaurant with the family.

Gifts: All fathers love a good gift. Instead of gifting something like a tie or socks, give a more personal gift like a handwritten card or note. Or even make a family activity out of creating a card or drawing for dad showing him how much you love him and appreciate him.

What’s more, give your father the gift of relaxation during Father’s Day by helping out around the home and outdoors. Take one of dad’s easy, routine outdoor activities, like watering flowers or pulling some weeds, and make it a family activity to do this chore for dad so he doesn’t have to.

However you plan to show your father or husband love and appreciation on Father’s Day, give it a personalized touch that he will truly enjoy and feel loved. From all of us at Connell’s Furniture & Mattress, we’re wishing you and your family a very happy and special Father’s Day!

Outdoor Summertime Fun

Category: ,

As you know, Connell’s has millions of dollars worth of home furnishings in-store and waiting just for you! But what’s equally important to us is being a part of your life. “Home is where the heart is,” right? To us, this isn’t some cliche saying. You spend the majority of your time in your home and it’s a place where you should feel happy and secure. That’s why we strive to provide you with the best name brand furniture and mattresses that you know you can trust. Peace of mind is important and we provide that with our No Oops Guarantee.

We’re proud to be a part of your life.  Shop our stores for furniture, accessories, mattresses and bedding. Connect with us on Facebook to enter contests and be inspired by famous quotes. Read our blog for ways to enhance your life!

Now that summer is in full swing, most of us want to spend more time in the great outdoors. While it’s fun to take day trips throughout Ohio and the surrounding states, why not take advantage of your own backyard? Read on for ways to enjoy the outdoors this summer right at home.

Remember the essence of summer – fun! Kids cannot wait for the last day of school. Once it’s here, they want to spend as much time outdoors as they can (if they don’t, we should encourage them to do so.) Give the kids plenty to do outdoors right at home. Set up a sprinkler on a hot summer day. Let them camp in their own backyard. Get the jars ready for fireflies. Have a water balloon fight! Let them grow their very own garden.

Fun isn’t just for kids anymore! Sure, you’re all grown up. That doesn’t mean everything has to be neck tie serious all the time. Play with the little ones. Pass a ball or Frisbee. Set up a game for adults and invite the neighbors – horseshoes, corn hole, ladder golf and croquet are all easy summer games to set up.  Plus they can be taken down immediately after play if you wish so you can get to more serious things, like mowing.

Set up a summertime reading spot under the old shade tree. Throw down a blanket and cuddle with the kids and a good book in the great outdoors this summer. Need some cushioning? Place a chair and an end table there for a comfortable spot to sit. Take advantage of a bird feeder to enjoy your feathered friends this summer while chillin’ on a hot summer night.

Have a cookout! If you have a patio or deck, there’s nothing better than an old-fashioned cookout. Throw the brats and burgers on the grill. Mix up some iced tea and lemonade. Crank the stereo, invite the neighbors and enjoy the lazy days of summer.

As always, stop into one of the two Connell’s locations to tell us about the fun you’re having this summer. And while you’re at it, browse the store for new home furnishings. We  just sold a boatload of merchandise during our Fourth of July Sale and have so many new items in stock for you to take advantage of! We hope to see you soon!

We’re not Fortune Tellers … But we can Guarantee Furniture you’ll Love

Category: ,

At Connell’s Furniture and Mattresses, we do a lot of things really well. For instance, we can help you design the living room of your dreams, we can find a sofa to match your drapes and we can certainly tell you exactly when your furniture will arrive at your house. You might think we can do it all … but there’s one service we don’t offer. And that’s fortunetelling.

You see, we can’t always look into the future and guarantee your new furniture will always work for you. We’ve seen it all – you buy the sofa you love but your mother-in law hates it, or your new dining room set arrives at your doorstep but you’ve suddenly been transferred to a different city for work.

But because of our No Oops™ policy, we can predict you’ll never get stuck with furniture that you don’t love. It’s our guarantee to you, and it protects you from life’s little surprises. 

NO OOPS™ means that if you don’t like your new furniture for any reason, we’ll take it back – no questions asked! Plus unlike the other stores, you’ll never pay additional shipping charges, you’ll never pay restocking or usage fees and you can cancel your order at any time.

No one else offers you the protection and peace of mind you’ll find with No Oops™. Visit our elegant showrooms in either Mount Vernon or Newark, Ohio, and browse our huge selection of living room, dining room, bedroom, home office, home entertainment, mattresses, bedding and kids furniture. We guarantee when do, you won’t make a mistake!

NO OOPS™ Means You’ll Never Make a Mistake at Connell’s

Category:

Can you believe the nerve of the other furniture stores?! I mean come on! They make it a painstakingly laborious and expensive chore to return furniture that you don’t absolutely love. For instance, consider the actual example of a customer – who will remain nameless – that wasn’t absolutely satisfied with her new sofa and tried to return it …

This particular unnamed customer purchased a sofa online for $1,399. When it arrived at her home, she suddenly began having second thoughts about the sofa’s fabric and color. She decided she wanted to return this particular sofa. The customer did the math; she already paid $139.90 for shipping plus an $80 surcharge because the sofa was deemed ‘bulky.’ And to return the sofa, the customer would have to pay another $139.90 to ship the sofa back and another $80 because the sofa was still overweight. In this customer’s mind, she figured she’d have to pay $439.80 not to keep an item she loved. But in the end it didn’t really matter, the retailer wouldn’t let the customer return the sofa.

At Connell’s Furniture and Mattresses, we promise the previous scenario will never happen to you. We’re confident of this because our NO OOPS policy guarantees you won’t get stuck with furniture you don’t love.

  • NO OOPS means that if you don’t like your new furniture for any reason, we’ll take it back – no questions asked!
  • NO OOPS means you’ll never have to settle for furniture you don’t like!
  • NO OOPS means you’ll never pay additional shipping charges to return your furniture.
  • NO OOPS means you’ll never pay restocking or usage fees to return your furniture.
  • NO OOPS means you can cancel your order at any time.
  • NO OOPS means you can refuse delivery of your furniture.

We really don’t think you’ll ever want to return any furniture you purchase from Connell’s. And our experience proves that our customers actually make fewer returns.

Why you ask?

Because NO OOPS gives you the shopping confidence and freedom that you won’t find at the other stores. So be bold and take chance, because we promise when you shop with us, you’ll never make a mistake!
