Village Furniture Homemakers
Village Furniture has been trading in Sunbury since January 1991 starting in a small (200m2), leased shop in O'Shanassy Street. Despite starting a business in what was then economically a very difficult time, the sales turnover consistently increased until it became evident that the size of the premises was a problem.
At the end of 1991 a parcel of land was subdivided and released by VicRail and a purpose built 1,700m2 showroom was constructed in 1993 - Village Furniture has been trading at that address to this day.
Originally Village Furniture began as an independent retail furniture store which specialized in quality timber and country style furniture and developed their reputation with that range. But realizing the importance of branding and advertising John & Jeanette decided to join the Homemakers Group. This has given them access to very high quality advertising brochures, a brilliant website and affiliation with a great group of stores all over Australia; not to mention ranges of furniture both Australian made and imported which may not have been available to them and which have changed over the years according to ongoing trends.
Whilst the quality timber furniture is still an important part of the range in the store it has been further enhanced by a large range of leather and fabric sofas and lounges; along with bedroom furniture, occasional furniture and decorator items.
One of the most important factors of the success of Village Furniture has been in employing excellent staff. None of us at Village Furniture has come from a furniture background, but with great talent and personality; and the considerable training undertaken with each one the result is a team of enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable people who are not “sales people” as such but who are more interested in explaining product information so that the customer can make an intelligent and educated choice for their purpose. Ongoing training and a desire to provide a great buying experience means the pursuit of excellence never stops.
The entire Village Furniture team live locally in Sunbury & the Macedon Ranges and have a knowledge and understanding of their customers’ needs. In return Village Furniture is very blessed by their staff who have continued at their vocation for years and years and we all enjoy working together in a friendly happy environment where we all support each other thru our life journeys.
