Chen Qing

General Manager
Chen Qing, a Commerce graduate from Saint Mary’s University, founded Hometown Furniture & Mattress after selling two movie tickets he won online, turned a good profit, and realized that he had a found a niche market in Halifax: the Chinese and international student population. He then began selling his possessions and flipping second-hand mattresses and old appliances. Since mattresses were his best seller, Chen contacted manufacturers to secure supplier agreements. Now, seven years later he has deals with more than 10 national mattress and furniture suppliers, 16 employees, and 3
full size stores in Eastern Canada.

Showroom 2017

Since the first day that Hometown Furniture & Mattress opened till now, we have successfully established three locations along the East Coast

 

With significant high business growth and increasing number of customer awareness, we have proudly won the Top Three Furniture Store Award in NS for the year 2017.

 

Fantastic Pricing and amazing customer service determine the future success of Hometown Furniture & Mattress.

 

In 2017, we have decided that only buying large volume direct from factories, can the unit cost drop significantly. And with our close relationship among all of our factories in China, Malaysia, Vietnam, USA, and Canadian mattress manufacturers, we cut the middlemen and directly pass all our saving to customers. 

 

The senior management team visits our major suppliers twice a year, making sure the quality of the products that we carry is supreme. All of our furniture and mattress have three to ten years manufactory and retail warranty. We let our customers contact our store sales staff to claim warranty coverage instead of calling the 1800 manufacture customer service number.

Showroom 2015 - 2016

Chen's fourth showroom. Chen moved to his new showroom at 6054 Almon St in Dec/2015.With 6000 square foot retail space and two more Canadian furniture suppliers Mazin Furniture and A class, Chen's business has boomed significantly.

The Front showroom is focusing more on Contemporary and high-end furniture and mattresses, while the back showroom is targeting more middle to low-end furniture.

Hometown Furniture & Mattress Ltd is the only store in downtown Halifax that carries all levels of furniture and mattress. It is truly a one-stop shop that customers could purchase bedroom, dining room, living room, office and mattresses in a local furniture store.

 

Showroom 2013
Chen's third showroom. Chen moved the business to a 2,500 square foot penthouse showroom on South Street in August 2013 and began selling furniture.

 

Showroom 2012
Chen's second showroom. Chen successfully negotiated contracts with Simmons, Sealy and Springwall mattress. Finally, he had his own suppliers. From this point, Chen started to sell only brand new, brand name mattresses.

 

Showroom 2011
Chen's first showroom. He rented a small 800 square foot apartment as a showroom and started selling second-hand mattresses. Chen did not have a warehouse to stock inventory so if a customer wanted to buy a mattress he would deliver the mattress to the customer himself.
