Good Lord, don't rent furniture or buy overpriced furniture from a rental store. I am ALL FOR "shop local" and most of you who know me know that I preach "shop local" all the time but in this case, go to a big box store in Casa Grande & fill up your house w/ one of the stores there. Maricopa will still get a small percentage of the sales tax and you won't get screwed.

This! I got their flyer in the mail the other day and glanced through it. I tossed it after having a good chuckle. Their prices were, well, laughable!

It is hard to imagine that Aaron's is going to be successful down here. I read Sneakers comment about laughing at the cost. I just got a flier for them and found that the lovely 8 piece bedroom set for a mere $99.99 for 24 months could be mine for the meager total price of $2639.76. You can bet I'll be waiting at the door when they open :lol: to plunk down my greenbacks. If it was good quality furniture, perhaps it would be worth that much, but when we moved here, I happened into one in Phoenix not knowing what Aaron's was and the furniture at that location was not even pressed wood let along real wood. Someone would have to be really desperate or unable to calculate the actual cost to agree to such a price. IMHO - What a rip-off :evil:

I've always been AMAZED at the people who rent furniture, electronics & appliances. It seems like an absolute no-brainer to me to say no-freakin-way.

Canuk - there is a BIG group of Canadian ladies that meet @ Honeycutt coffee weekly too.
