Thread: Century line for "Select Retailers"

    Default Century line for "Select Retailers"

    I found someone selling a new in box bed, dresser and 2 night stands from Century furniture's Camden Collection. I reached out to the seller and he has these items (for seemingly a steal) because he works for Century. I've found some steals in wild ways like this living in NC - furniture market samples, warranty extras and outlet deals. We're going to look at them in person to see if it might be a win. That said, all I can find about this specific collection from the Century website says it's available only through "select retailers." The PBG program maybe? I thought I'd ask if you know more about this. Do they offer a lower quality line for some retailers? I don't recognize the names on the list when I look through them, so I can't really gauge the connection.

    Any idea of what a bed in this line would retail for?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Never heard of this line, sorry. It’s not unusual for makers to market specific lines or groups to specific stores, however.

    New in the box? From someone who claims to work for Century? That might be stolen goods, manufacturers don’t do this in th3 industry,….proceed with caution.

    Thanks for your feedback - he said he works there and they had a “holiday enployeee sale” but his living situation changed and he can’t use it now. Is holiday employee sale a thing? 😬

    I’ve never heard of such a thing, but that doesn’t mean anything. Dealers don’t get all the information. It’s the “new in box” that seems strange to me. You can alaways call Century Human Resources and see if that person is employed there.
