I wanted to send a thank you to Wayside. We had bought a dining room table and chair set. The table was broken in September. I called and Bill from customer service and he was able to get the table replaced. We will continue to buy from Wayside their customer service is excellent and Bill was a great help. Thank you and have a great holiday season to all Wayside associates and owners.

I just wanted to say thank you soooo much to the delivery team for our furniture! Matt and Tommy were awesome and got everything inside, even though it wasn’t easy. I truly appreciate what they did and hope that they get the recognition they deserve for their hard work. Happy holidays to everyone at Wayside! Thanks again!

Dear Owners and Management: My husband and I shopped at Wayside Furniture this afternoon (11/26/17) and were very pleased with our experience. Your sales associate, Lisa, provided excellent customer service and her interior decorating expertise was very helpful to me in making my selections. Unlike previous shopping experiences where salespersons tried to sell me furniture, Lisa helped me buy furniture. And I am confident that we will be enjoying our purchase today for many years to come. We look forward to the arrival of our new reclining sofas, chairs, and cocktail table and thank Lisa again for her patient, personable, professional, and most helpful service.

I just had a delivery of a bedroom set and wanted to compliment your delivery team. They were on time, very courteous, professional and did an all round great job. It can’t be easy lifting and carrying heavy furniture and they did their job so well. Great job!

Delivery by Brandon F and he was very polite, explained re table , delivery. His helper jeff was also polite. Ability to determine delivery time ,track truck and indicate location of our hone was Great. I look forward to my next purchase at Wayside. See your great staff soon.

My salesman Mark “stuck with me”, and even stayed over a little bit to assist, made me feel like my business was wanted! He was so patient and nice and HELPFUL! It was my first time here (drove from Brookpark) and I have already referred Mark to my friends and will be looking for something else soon and will seek Mark out for that too. I felt “disgruntled” at the other stores I shopped at over the last few weeks but Mark and Wayside were the OPPOSITE of what I experienced elsewhere. I cannot say enough nice things about the store and Mark. I am NOW a “Wayside Customer” and worth the drive!

I had pleasant buying experience working with JD Zitricki! JD was nothing kind, professional, patient, and helpful! I never felt pressured or had anything pushed onto me. He helped me find the perfect dinette set! Great job, JD!

Dave and Chris did a great job delivering my furniture. I appreciated the whole experience from sale to delivery, everyone was great. I use to sell and understand that one area can make or break a sale. Every area was great and I am super happy!

I want to recognize Jim Sauter for a wonderful experience. My mother's boyfriend assisted in person by scoping out the appropriate furniture (lift chair) for my mother who is in assisted-living. I subsequently called and handled the entire transaction over the phone. Jim was very patient with my cell phone that dropped the call, and my email mishap where he ended up sending me a repeat email due to something wrong on my end... on his day off nonetheless. I appreciate his dedication and easy transaction. He is wonderful and is very easy to work with and I wish he worked in a multitude of industries. If I have any other furniture needs, then I will surely go to him and recommend him to others. Please route this complement to the appropriate management team for recognition.

My wife and I came into your Akron store on 6/17/2017. We had the great fortune of being helped by one sales person by the name of Jill Eizonas. We would just like to say she is one of the best sale persons that we have ever worked with.

Delivery guys Jeff and Forrest were great! They helped us get the old couch out that was stuck in the door. They were good with setup & got back to us quickly about a minor issue that we forgot to ask about and they solved it. Very professional!

I had a great experience with Wayside today. This was our first time shopping and had been to many other store, but Corey McDaniel was the best salesperson. We could tell he really cared about us and actually knew about the furniture he was selling. To top it off we enjoyed how helpful and friendly the office personnel were and were very happy with everything and everyone at Wayside.

Nick and Will were excellent representatives for Wayside Furniture. During delivery they were very helpful explaining things and helped take an old piece of furniture to the curb. We will stick with Wayside for any future furniture needs.

I just wanted to let you know that I made a mattress purchase at your store on Canton Rd last evening. My salesperson was Michael Oyler. He was very helpful in explaining the differences between the mattress brands and the comfort quality of each. I explained to him what I could spend and he directed me to the best mattress for my budget. I’ll be receiving it Saturday. At no time did he try to lead me out of my budget range and did a very good job showing the best value for my money, which I really appreciated. I will definitely come back to Wayside for any other furniture needs. I did buy a sectional sofa at that location in June 2015 and still love it! Oh…he was really nice too.

Kim R.

We just received our chair and end table by Justin and Sal (truck 6). This is the second time they have delivered furniture, the first a large sectional 2 months ago. Both times theses 2 men were excellent to deal with. Very careful with delivery into the house, help with sectional set up and extremely professional. We definitely would want to them in the future as we now look at dining room sets. Special thanks to them.

We had a Flexsteel sofa and chair delivered on Saturday by Tommy & Brandon F. There was an issue with 2 of the sofa seating backs. Brandon returned later Sat. eve. with the replacement backs for the sofa and installed them. We just want you to know that both men were very professional, courteous and attentive to our concerns. We never expected Brandon to return the same day to resolve our issue. We wanted you to know how impressed we were with your customer service. Your team goes above and beyond! We are also very pleased with our sofa and chair so far. Thank you!

Jim McGuire was awesome and went out of his way to help us find the perfect piece! When we went to the warehouse to pick up the order, Brandon Holmes helped us and was "super!" This won't be our last time shopping here because of such an excellent experience! Great job!

Matt and Dave Jr. did a great job delivering our furniture today. They were very kind and even took their shoes off each time they came in her house. They checked all the drawers to make sure there were no problems. I am very pleased with the entire experience with Wayside Furniture.

I want to thank Keelah Lyons, for all of his hard work yesterday. It has been a very long time since I have been in a store with sales and someone who has been so patient. Usually, salespeople are so pushy that I don’t even want to shop, But not at Wayside! I was very satisfied with Keelah and Wayside altogether

I am very happy with Wayside and specifically, Jay Berger and Mike Uhler. Jay was very helpful to us when we were in the store and even more when Jay came out to our home to help us. We can’t say enough nice things about how great it was to know that there are still professional people like Jay working in places like Wayside. And then Mike came out to our house today to make a few minor adjustments to the spindles on our new chairs, and again, was very helpful and professional, even offering to exchange the one chair he couldn't make better.

We would like to thank Randy Beorn from Wayside furniture for his great help and recommendations throughout the sofa buying experience. He is very professional, concerned about customer's requirements, patient, and comes up with good options. He took care of canceling our previous order even after we bought it, as we found that the sofa measurements were not suitable to our living room after we came home and checked. We rescheduled a visit and Randy arrived before his shift's time to accommodate our time and helped us with changing the order. Overall, we appreciate and recommend him highly. Thanks!

I want to compliment Joe Ferrato and Deborah Hissong for providing exceptional service when we made our most recent Wayside purchase.-order # 1051231. We needed very specific dimensions for our custom table & Joe went above & beyond to be certain the set was exactly perfect for our needs. Deb looked endlessly with me until we found the perfect chairs & Joe put the perfect table style together. Our dining set is absolutely beautiful!!!!! Our sincere appreciation to Joe & Deb!

Lisa Lavy is an excellent designer and sales associate. Her people skills are outstanding. I had been shopping for a mattress over a period of several months and had not found anyone anywhere that made me feel as comfortable and relaxed as she did. She took all the anxiety of buying such an important purchase away with her easygoing yet confident manner. She answered all of my questions and was extremely thorough in explaining all of the various choices. I have every confidence that she helped me to make the right choice for my mattress. She made the whole experience very enjoyable. I believe she is a great asset to your company.

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Cody Lambach who assisted me on Monday, April 18th, when I was purchasing new living room furniture. He was an absolutely fantastic salesperson and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone heading to Wayside to purchase furniture.

I wanted to commend Susie in customer service on Magadore Industrial Pkwy. We bought a Smith Brothers sectional in January and noticed that the throw pillows were severely under-stuffed. Susie checked with the manufacturer and they told her there was nothing they could do since the stuffing is determined by a machine using weight as a measurement. Susie relayed this message to me, but realizing that I wasn't satisfied, she took action and had me bring all 8 pillows to the warehouse so her team could make them right. Even though she said it might take a week, within 1 day she called to tell me the pillows were ready. She was working late during our drop-off visit (something I get the feeling she does often) so my wife and I did get to meet her. She spent extra time with us to talk about the pillows and even brought up another repair person to show us how to properly fluff our back cushions. I don't remember his name, but I am grateful to him as well. We now have 8 huge fluffy throw pillows that and we couldn't be happier. After our visit, my wife said several times how nice Susie is and she can tell it just comes natural to her to be that way. Thanks again Susie!

I was writing because I wanted to recognize Jacob Brant for his wonderful professionalism and knowledge that he provided to my fiancee Jo and myself when we came in to buy furniture last weekend. Although this was the a complex process, Jacob was very patient with us and assisted us for over 90 minutes. He even provided me his private cel phone number when we were leaving in case we had any questions. Top notch service to say the least. This was our first visit to Wayside and we wanted to acknowledge it will not be our last. We look forward to doing business with Jacob and Wayside in the future.

I had a few couches and a chair delievered. The delivery guys were great. One couch didn't fit and I had them leave it where it was. Kenny Pelfry offered to come back anytime (on his own time) and help me with it. I removed part of the wall and he came over on his time off and helped me move it in. His supervisor is Rob in the warehouse so i hope he reads this. Kenny went above and beyond for you guys. Great Guy! Thanks again.

I want you to know what a fine job Maria did. Your company is lucky to have her. Thanks to her patience and guidance, I have received the couches and chair/ottoman that I had hoped for. Her design expertise is beyond compare. Please let her know how much her skills are appreciated.

Dave and I recently came in and worked with you to purchase a sofa and an office unit. We want to thank you for your assistance and information that steered us towards our purchase. We are very satisfied with our choices. I also want to complement the delivery services. The drivers on truck 8 were prompt, friendly, and took time to protect our doorway and flooring before moving in the heavy furniture. They were efficient and careful in placing the furniture, packing materials were removed, and they gave us time to check everything out. They were in and out of our house in about 35 minutes. This is the most careful and courteous delivery we have experienced. We would like you to pass this on to the delivery men.

Dave & Mary B.

Wayside has exceeded all expectations! We recently purchased a TV corner stand from you. Your pricing was excellent, your service was excellent and your delivery tracking system was phenomenal ! At every step in the online purchasing and delivery process, Wayside made things easy for me. You did things quickly and correctly, the first time, and always kept me “in the loop.” We have been Wayside customers for 30 years and would not dream of buying quality furniture at any other store. Again, thank you. Job well done, by you, your delivery people and your management!

We received a partial furniture delivery on January 11th then items that were backordered arrived today (February 1st). Everything was exactly as we expected.

We wanted you to know how much we appreciate your salesman, Steve. He was so good to us and as we do not buy furniture often, he was patient and informative and above all, honest, polite and kind. He even sent us a thank you note. Very nice. Also, please know the two men who delivered our furniture were wonderful and just like Steve, honest, kind and polite. So thank you, Wayside, for these good folks you employ. This world could use more people like them. Not to forget mentioning, the furniture is perfect, we love it. Thank You!!!!!!!

Thank you to the Mother of Kindra C. for calling and praising Jim Newell up and down. Mother said this was her daughter’s first purchase for her new home. She was a little skeptical, but Jim took time and explained everything to them making the purchase great. She was so happy with this experience she felt Jim went “ABOVE & BEYOND”!! She and her husband waited at the house and when the drivers called and said the delivery should be in about 30-45 minutes they thought “Oh yeah, right.” But the drivers were right on time and they were so nice and polite (Jeff Marsh & Joe Eleo).

She wanted us to know and pass the word on how great Jim Newell and Delivery were for them!!

Great work Jim, Jeff and Joe!!

Just called to complement our drivers Brent and Austin. They said the drivers were polite, courteous, and went out of their way to be helpful. They were impressed. Also they have been buying at wayside for 25 years and they work with Mike Stricker. They said you couldn't ask for a better sales person. He never rushes them to make a decision and always gives them knowledge, information and always sends them a thank you card to show his appreciation. They will continue to be wayside customers and work with Mike.

Just wanted to pass along that Jim Sauter has received great compliments from customers. He brought up three orders totaling over $4000. The customers were very impressed by him. Never would have thought it was his first day. They've been looking for merchandise that speaks to them for the last two years. They live in Mentor and have been to every store around. So they know what they're talking about in regards to sales people! They've encountered more than a few. We gained new customers thanks to Jim and his great service not bad for the first sale on the first day!!!
