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.

Connell’s Highlights ‘Social Zone’


You may have noticed a few changes around here over the last few weeks – and if you haven’t, we’d like to bring your attention to it. Our Home page has been transformed into what we are calling the Connell’s ‘Social Zone.’



Because buying furniture is a personal decision.

Because when you buy furniture you are buying something you are going to create and share memories on.

Our goal is to make your home furnishings shopping experience a much more personal one.

Our goal is to have real time conversations with you via our social networks and to help you navigate through the experience in a way that is meaningful, fun and most of all personal.

The Connell’s ‘Social Zone’ is a real-time feed of all of our social interactions, bringing the full conversation into the public eye. Since the vast majority of folks interact with a number of the social media sites, it provides convenience to our customers. Select the social stream you’d like to join without digging or searching.

We’ve included dynamic content from Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and our Blog on our Home page. If you are only on one of those social networking sites, you’ll still be able to view and read about what we are doing on the others via this live stream. You can also drill down to the feed you’d like by selecting the icons at the top of the page. Pretty cool, huh?

Check it out and let us know your thoughts. After connecting with us virtually, please stop in to one of our stores in Mt. Vernon or Newark and meet with us in person. Furniture buying should have a personal quality to it, and we’d love to help you select that just right sofa, loveseat, dinette set or mattress to meet the needs of your family. We promise high quality home furnishings at exceptional values every day.
