Mark your calendar! Our clearance and floor sample event starts Saturday, January 4. If you’re new to this event, here’s the scoop. It’s out with the old and in with new. On January 4, discontinued items get marked down online, and our stores discount their floor samples of these discontinued items, too. Plus, we introduce new items online. The first Saturday in January is always a great day to shop with us!

Here’s everything you need to know about our clearance and floor sample event, and insider tips on how to shop it like a pro.

Online clearance 

Items that are discontinued (meaning we will no longer be selling them in 2020) will be on clearance online at up to 50 percent off.

Pro tip: You can get a preview of the sale now by looking on on our site for items marked “Discontinued 1/4.” If there is stock left of these items on January 4, they will go on clearance. Things tend to sell out quickly, so it’s a good idea to act fast if you have your eye on something. Sorry, no price adjustments on purchases made before 1/4.

Store floor samples 

On January 4 our stores discount their floor samples of discontinued items and also mark down items from our current collection they’re taking off display. So unlike the online clearance, it’s a mix of our discontinued and current furniture. We price items based on their condition—some things look perfect, others are a little worn. Look for red tags that say “Floor Sample” throughout the store. (If a floor sample is already sold, it’s worth checking our online clearance to see if it’s there!)

Pro tips for shopping in stores!

Arrive early for the best selection. Every store has a line at the door before it opens, so grab a coffee and join in the fun with your fellow Room & Board fans!

Stay by your item and leave the tags in place. A Design Associates will come by to help you make your purchase and coordinate delivery or pick-up details with you.

Keep in mind floor samples are final sale, so it’s best to know your measurements and give everything a close look before you buy. This is also why you have to be at the store in person to buy a floor sample. We want to make sure you know what you’re getting! (Online clearance items are shipped new from our warehouse and can be returned.)

Floor samples can’t be delivered until mid to late January. We can only deliver floor sample items locally within 100 miles of our stores. Fear not if you live farther away: our online clearance items can be delivered anywhere within the contiguous U.S. in our usual time frame (one to three weeks depending on your location).
