I just wanted to say how great experience dealing with Bennett’s was. Julie, the salesrep, helped me find the size of love seat/sofa, that no other Toronto furniture stores could. Then, the two fellows, delivering it, covered their shoes when they arrived, and sized up the door openings. They were able to maneuver the sofa, through the narrow doorways, and place it where I wanted. They suggested the felt pads on the 4 legs, and waited while I found some and then attached them to the legs. Then they described how to pull out the bed and replace it safely. All in all I could not have asked for better service and care. Thanks Bennetts! Job well done.

Service Excellence from start to finish bests describes our shopping experience at Bennett’s Home Furnishings. Our Sales Consultant Jan was very knowledgeable and customer focused. A true pleasure! The delivery men, Sean and Kyle, arrived on time, were very personable, and removed their footwear when entering our home. In a time when service is normally mediocre or non-existent Bennett’s customer service is in a class of its own. Best service ever! Oh and yes, we love our new furniture! We will definitely be returning to Bennett’s for all our future home furnishing needs.

Eric, Just want to thank Cathy for a job well done. Cathy was very helpful and patient with us. We were unable to get in to the store to see the chairs we were to purchase so she listened to our needs by telephone and came thru for us. We liked her approach and her care and concern that we got what we were looking for. She is an asset to your team. She provided great service and advice. We hope all your sales agents in your company are as diligent, cheerful and responsive as Cathy. One other point, I have a narrow and very long driveway and of course when our chairs were delivered there was a great deal of snow along the driveway preventing your fellows from backing all the way in. It did not bother them a bit that they had to carry the chairs a fair way into the house. They were both cheerful and very polite and they really should get a bit of credit also.
We love our chairs and will definitely use Bennett’s again. First time Buyers with Bennett's
By Maureen Siegel
My husband and I recently purchased 2 couches, a chair, and an ottoman for our family room. We had an interior designer, Shelley Hughes, come to our home and give us suggestions, as we wanted fabrics that wouldn't clash with an oriental carpet. (We've turned to Shelley several other times over the years, and have always been very pleased with her ideas). Since we had the time, as did Shelley, we went to Bennett's to look for what we needed. We dealt with Karen who was most helpful and knowledgeable. After a few more visits to be really sure of what we wanted, and to look again through their many wonderful fabric samples to reassure ourselves that what we chose was the best choice for us, we placed our order. The furniture was ready earlier than we had expected, and a delivery date was arranged. Although we were the last customers on a Saturday p.m. to receive a delivery, the 2 men were very friendly and helpful, and very considerate. They happily moved our old furniture to other rooms, and complimented us on our choices of furniture fabric.
In summary, why would anyone want to shop out-of-town when such a fine furniture store with wonderful staff and service is right here on our doorstep?
By Jennifer & David Eade
Once again I would like to thank Bennett's for their excellent customer service. We have had a problem with a chair that we purchased there some time ago, and the follow up has been fantastic. After attending our home in December 2012, Jim came back again on January 23rd, 2013 and was able to complete the repairs necessary on our chair. Jim is an extremely nice gentleman, knowledgeable about the products and very clean and efficient with the repairs. Again, we would highly recommend Bennett's to anyone looking for furniture in the future, and appreciate greatly the way we have been treated as customers. Thank You,

Hello Mike, I just got delivery of our sofa with chaise today. My driveway was icy & it is deadly! I figured they’d never get up it and they didn’t but they still managed to carry it all the way up, about 200 feet, & put it in the front room. Thanks Mike for your great service and to the delivery guys.
By Ben & Janet Williston
I just received my sofa and bed delivery today, and I just want to say how great those delivery guys were. They were very professional and dedicated. Great customer service! Our sales consultant, Rhonda, was very helpful in guiding our selections and with decorating ideas. The biggest surprise was finding out the delivery charge was comparable to local rates here in Toronto! I still need to buy quite a bit more furniture, as our house is still under renovations, and after speaking to the delivery guys, I will be returning to furnish a few more rooms in the near future. See you soon,
To Bennett’s, I wanted everyone at Bennett’s to know how pleased I was with my experience. Jan, our sales consultant was very helpful and knowledgeable. The delivery guys were very helpful too- much praise for Sean & Kyle! We love our furniture. It's also nice that you carry such quality "Made In Canada" furniture. Thanks,
By Phyllis Hendry
Hi Mike, My husband and I purchased a new sofa from Bennett's a few weeks ago and we wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the entire process. From the moment we walked in the back door until the moment that the delivery men left our home we could not have been more satisfied. You greeted us when we arrived, gave us a ballot to complete and let us wander around at our leisure until we came to you with a question regarding Lazyboy products. You directed us as to where to go and let us once again wander around at our leisure. You were only seconds away if we needed you and you never made us feel pressured - and when we did ask you questions - you knew the answers - you are a great salesman. The after sales experience was also wonderful. We were having the sofa delivered and your people called the day before the sofa was to be delivered to let us know that they would be calling the next morning to give us a more accurate time - and on delivery day, as promised, someone called again to do just that. My husband (who by the way is hard to impress) was more than impressed with the delivery service - he said he had never met delivery men like them before - he told me that they were great guys and that you could tell they loved their job. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
By Gord & Mary Read
We recently, unfortunately had our home trashed and had to replace a bedroom suite and 2 chairs which we purchased at your store. We cannot say enough how pleased we were with the help and patience from Christina as we tried to decide on the pieces. We are very happy with our choices. We also want to applaud the delivery men, they couldn't have been nicer, so careful, and obliging, assembled everything so carefully and they also were kind enough to carry up an old chair for us, wrap it in plastic and set it on our trailer as we were giving it to our son. We just want to say a big thank you for making a difference in the nicest way.
By Peter & Patsy Danielson
Hello Marlaine, I wanted to let you know that it was great to see Jim come out to service our swivel rocker chair. He had it fixed in 10 minutes! He showed confidence in his work & we appreciate what he did. Many thanks to Marylou and Jim in the service department. A happy Bennett’s customer.
By Jan McGinn
Dear Bennett Family, I wanted to share our experience of purchasing living room furniture from your store in Peterborough. Our salesperson Debbie was friendly, helpful and not aggressive, allowing us to "test drive" almost every item in the store before making some very helpful suggestions. When our decision had been made and delivery day decided upon, the gentlemen arrived with smiles and a friendly attitude, being very careful with our new chairs and sofa as they set up our new living room. My husband Dave and I will definitely return to your store when we are in need of new furniture. Thank you for the wonderful professionalism we received from start to finish! Sincerely,
By Debbie Bonsma
Dear Bennett’s, We had a Lazy boy and freezer delivered and wanted to let you know that the delivery men, Sean & Kyle were great. It is the best service we’ve ever had with both with the sales and the delivery. Thank you,
By Florence Algar
Just wanted to drop a line saying how BRILLIANT I think this advertising bit is! I love it! Whoever works for your advertising dept. was really doing a good job!! What a wonderful pitch! LOL! I love it! Bennett’s is a great store. Good quality and good prices too.
By Don & Sharron Gallagher
Hi Mike, Don & I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service we received yesterday. Your delivery men came, set up & cleaned the glass top of our new table. We were very impressed and we just love our new piece. All the best for the Christmas season & 2013.
By Brian & Sharon McManus
Hello Cathy, We just wanted to send a quick note to say how very pleased we are with our new chairs and side tables, and the excellent service from the delivery men. They arrived well within their expected time and did the set up quickly and efficiently. Thanks again for your guidance and good advice,
By Jim & Anne Gray
Hello Bennett’s, We wanted to tell you about our recent experience with your store. Our salesperson, Karen, assisted us with finding a sofa to suit our needs and even recommended a few paint color choices for our room. It was delivered by Sean & Kyle and they did an excellent job, not a mark anywhere and it is a big sofa. They were polite and just looked after everything so well. We will be back to shop at Bennett’s again for sure. Sincerely,
By Patricia Beckett
Dear Marlaine, As a recent purchaser from your store I wish to acknowledge the two gentlemen, Sean and Kyle who, on two separate occasions, delivered my furniture. These men were professional, polite and extremely helpful in assisting me by removing my old furniture and setting up my new. I would also like to recognize Cathy who was very courteous and helpful. It was a pleasure to meet the delivery men and I would be negligent by not advising you of how fortunate you are to have such quality employees. Yours truly,
By Paul Portelli & Derrick Wendel
We were very impressed with the service provided from the moment we walked in to the day it was all delivered. We ordered a new washing machine (front loader) and dryer. All the benefits of a front loading washer were explained thoroughly and the sales associate’s knowledge about the product was very clear. The transaction was simple. It was ordered on Wednesday and delivered on Saturday, as promised. The delivery men unpacked the items, stacked them, secured them and installed all the hose and electrical hook ups. The area was left neat and clean and they took the boxes away to dispose of. It was as if the washing machine and dryer were always there. Bennett’s staff took the time to make us feel special and we will always look to them first.
By Terry & Marlene Reed
Hello Bennett’s, We love our furniture! Everyone that comes into our house asks where we got it. We are happy to tell them and we always mention the outstanding salesperson, Cathy. Thank you Cathy for the time and care you gave from the computer drawings, colours & especially finding the right chair for Terry. I always felt you gave 100% each time I came in. You were an integral part of our new addition. See you when we need a washer/dryer! With much appreciation,
By Murray & Karen Marling
To Bennett's, My wife and I went to your store about 4 years ago to buy a couch that would accent our new entertainment center. A few 3 years later we needed service on our couch and your service people came to our house in Brooklin. They worked out a solution and we were actually shocked! We are coming to your store in September, after our August summer vacation, to purchase another couch. Your service, at the time of the first purchase, has been nothing less than warm, caring and very professional. We can’t wait to get shopping again! Thanks Bennett’s.
By Jay & Chris Glandon
Hi Marlaine, I would like to thank you for the opportunity of allowing us to express my opinion of your store. Last fall we visited your store in Campbellford to look at buying a new dining room table. We were greeted by your sales associate, Bernice. What an amazing lady. She was pleasant (not pushy), very knowledgeable and VERY patient with us. She spent over an hour with us helping us design our dining room table and chairs. After getting home, I started to question my choices, but when the furniture arrived...Wow! We are so happy with the set. Great quality and it looks amazing in our home. Because of the great care Bernice took in us, we are coming back to purchase a new living room set. To recap....Great Service, great products. It”s worth the drive from Tweed!
By Mary Lou Eastwood
I was looking for new living room furniture for my new apartment. I am an older person and quite small in stature, so was having a very difficult time finding something I liked that would be comfortable. It was my lucky day when I arrived at Bennett’s and met Cathy. She immediately saw the problem and helped me choose a set that I believed was the right size and colour. When it was delivered, I was dismayed to see that I had not only chosen a colour that did not suit, but a chair that was too big for me. The great delivery team contacted Cathy to let her know I was upset, and she immediately called me, told me not to worry we would find something I would like. She picked me up in her car and took me to the store, where we worked together on colours and a better chair size. Nothing was too much trouble for Cathy and I so appreciated her patience and kindness. When the new couch and chair were delivered I was just delighted with not only our choice of colours, but also the size of both pieces. They are perfect!
BENNETT'S – Where they treat you like a Queen!
By Carol Ashton
I felt Bennett’s is deserving of what I want to share with other customers. Here’s what Bennett’s means to me. I haven’t been well & we’ve been renovating so it’s been a difficult time. We have retired in the area from Bowmanville and friends told us to go see Mike at Bennett’s. We’d had a fire with our washer and dryer and needed another set immediately. After a phone conversation, Mike found and described a pair he thought would suit my needs. The delivery guys delivered it right away. They set them up & even took time to show & explain the features in detail. Later, we bought a Beautyrest mattress, also over the phone, with my MasterCard. We didn’t even have to go in and once again a successful delivery! Next, we saw La-Z-Boys in the flyer so went to the store but I couldn’t go up the stairs. A man said that’s ok and he carried it downstairs for me to see! It was appropriate for us so I bought 2! I saw a fridge when I was in looking at the La-Z-Boy chair and had them deliver it at the same time. I called Mike to let him know I’d like a stove to replace mine which has burners. He gave me information on all stoves features- so now I’m using a convection stove which I’m very happy with. Next, I wanted an inexpensive mattress and Mike found one on special that is just right! I have bought everything I own from Bennett’s and wouldn’t shop anywhere else. The delivery team, Tom Haig and Jim Twigg, were so wonderful for all the deliveries. Mike is very knowledgeable so could advise and explain features of all my purchases & took the time for me. He made me feel like a “special customer” and that my business is appreciated.
By Roween & Vera Scott
I was extremely happy with the service and personal care that was addressed to us by Christina Kalchos during this difficult time with the loss of our home. We were always greeted with a smile and sincere advice. Christina allowed us to make our choices with her expert knowledge. She was patient and understanding and gave great follow up to keep us informed.
By Sara May Hubble
The custom selections available at Bennett’s to build the room of your dreams is just one of the many reasons why the Hubble family decided to visit Bennett’s with their daughter’s bedroom plan in hand. Youngest daughter Sara’s birthday wish came true with the help of her family as salesperson Debbie assisted with Sara’s choice of perfect pieces for Sara’s bedroom including her brand new headboard and dresser – all to scale from Sara’s plan making her small room functional and tidy with storage, just the way she wished! Now the next generation of shoppers has begun to discover the Bennett’s experience.
By Stephen A. McAllister
An awesome place to buy furniture - wonderful caring staff! Amazing selection of furniture.
By Neil Lucy & Sharlene Hutchinson
Hello Marlaine, Last March we took delivery of a La-Z-Boy reclining sofa. We noticed a problem with the right end of the recliner and contacted your service department. Marylou dispatched Jim to come have a look at it. After trouble shooting with the set to no avail and discussions with Marylou, she told us Bennett’s would credit the full purchase price and we could pick out another sofa. Marlaine, I can’t tell you how impressed and relieved I felt. I have dealt with Bennett’s in the past and I am a firm believer in the excellence of your business. Sharlene and I now have a lovely replacement sofa. Our thanks to you and Eric for treating us so decently. Huge thanks to Jim and Marylou for doing such a stellar job of looking after us. We’ll be back!
By Kim McDonald
Hi Cathy, Just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for all your help in picking out new furniture for my mom. The items have been successfully delivered and look great! I don't think I've ever experienced such a pleasant shopping experience before and that was absolutely down to you. Thanks so much!
By Brian & Sue Hackett
My wife and I recently purchased a dining room set, 3 chairs and and a sofa. The new coffee table is on order. The down side is that the leather chair and ottoman makes me miss many evening TV shows !!!! Cathy is your rock. She is so professional and always has a smile on her face , even though I likely piss her off at times. I just thought I should tell you of the great staff you have. Also , your delivery team is incredible. I only know one name , Sean but I am sure Cathy has the others. We thank you for a business second to none and a staff that needs to be recognised.
By Sue & Charles DeClute
Dear Mr. Bennett, I am writing again on both the quality of products and staff that you have in your Peterborough store. I am speaking specifically of Jan Norman, home furnishings consultant. We have dealt with Jan a few times now and she is one of the best retail people I have ever encountered. I don’t know what you pay her, but you need to pay her more! Jan is fun to deal with and goes that extra mile for her customers. Something you don’t often get these days. The quality of product you have and indeed your entire staff makes it a pleasure to shop there. Just thought you should know. Regards,
You and Bennett’s have given the gift that keeps on giving! It's a great feeling to come home every day and feel settled and happy. I love my beautiful furniture and furnishings - every single piece we picked out is gorgeous and the best part is, you really did make it so easy! I remember initially feeling overwhelmed by your huge selection but piece by piece, you helped me pick furniture that reflects my style and is also comfortable and practical! I also appreciated how you paid attention to my needs during every stage, from consultation and shopping to delivery. The men who came to drop off and set-up my furniture are some of the best in the business. The best part is when people come over and ask where I bought my furniture. I'm so confident and proud to refer you and Bennetts for high quality, unique furniture and unparalleled service. Thanks for helping me make my condo a real home!
By Cathy Milton
Hello Cathy, I just wanted to send you a short note to say THANK YOU so much for the guidance you gave my parents (Margaret and Peter Michaud) in their recent shopping expedition for twin beds. They really like them!! You made the whole experience painless, and I observed how patiently you dealt with their pre-conceived notions about beds..hahaha Seriously, though, it is a great skill you have and I know that they (and I) valued your knowledge and experience.
As a bonus, the delivery, set-up and pick-up of the old beds was a god-send for them. My mother told me that the guys who came to their house last week were really nice, and super-accommodating.
Thanks again, and I hope to see you again some time. I shall keep yourbusiness card handy.
By Kay & Joe Simone
We were looking for a new kitchen table and had been to several other stores before walking through the front doors of Bennett’s. There are plenty of quality choices there to suit every budget and décor. Our salesperson Debbie was very helpful, knowledgeable and had great ideas. She listened to what we said and did not try to sell us something else. Also, she left us alone to look at the selection and talk as a couple without bugging us. Debbie also encouraged us to enter a store contest as Bennett’s was celebrating their 85th Anniversary. We actually won the Grand Prize of $2011 to spend at Bennett’s!! We almost didn’t collect our prize as our contact details had changed and no one could find us to let us know we won. Debbie went out of her way to find us and showed up in our driveway one weekend to give us the great news in person! When our furniture was delivered the delivery men were very polite, careful and efficient. We had a very positive experience at Bennett’s and encourage everyone to walk through the doors of this amazing store and have one too!
By Marie Locke
Dear Eric & Marlaine, I wanted to congratulate you on your new web site! For several generations the Locke families have been faithful satisfied customers of Bennett’s Home Furnishings. From bedroom suites, to dining room furniture, from stoves, dishwashers, and refrigerators, from cottage furniture to customized occasional chairs, Bennett’s have always fulfilled our needs with top quality, personalized service and the best possible prices. Why would you shop anywhere else? Family motto, always try Bennett’s “first”!
By Laura and Jaye Hart
We purchased a second home and searched a number of furniture stores. Bennett’s in every area have exceeded our expectations- quality, pricing, delivery and customer service surpassed all our needs and was second to none! We are re-doing our first home and plan to have Bennett's assist us with our future purchases. Thanks again for all the help.
By Linda Warren
My experience with Bennett’s Home Furnishings has been nothing but positive right from the start. After having less than a positive experience with another large furniture store in Peterborough, my confidence was low. Bennett’s has surpassed all my expectations for customer service and product standards. I’ve been treated as a person, not an account number which makes all the difference. Rhonda has been fantastic and has made sure that I was completely happy with the furniture I bought. Bennett’s is a local business and they understand their customer’s needs, and stand by what they sell. I won’t shop anywhere else.
By Peter and Marilynn Clark
Dear Ms Bennett, I would like to let you know of the commendable customer service that my husband Peter and I received at Bennett’s in Peterborough. We bought a sofa and chair, wide screen TV console, occasional chair, kitchen table and chair set and a bed in the last six months. The friendly, professional, over and above service we received from sales associate Jan Norman was exceptional! Not to be outdone, the accommodations performed by the delivery persons Shawn and Brian Widdis when the load had to be changed to accommodate my time constraints was met with professional and friendly service. We feel these associates delivered service over and above any we’ve received at other retail establishments! Thank you so much for providing us with a very pleasurable shopping experience.
By Lynda and Alan Saxby
Marylou and Staff, We just wanted to pass on our many thanks for all the help you gave us in resolving our problem. Your expediting everything so quickly was amazing, and Debbie was terrific yesterday in helping with our selection, and co-ordinating delivery today, as we know Lakefield deliveries are normally scheduled for Saturdays. Thanks also to Jan Norman and Jim for helping us throughout the process, and Mike Seguire for his advice when we were at your Campbellford store. The delivery crew both times did great job. Maylou, we can't say enough to express our gratitude to you for getting this resolved so expeditiously. We are very happy Bennett's customers.
By Mike and Donna Melnik
I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know we love our new kitchen set that was delivered by your team last Friday. Believe it or not, this is the first NEW kitchen set we’ve ever owned in 30 years. Anyway, we just love it and, judging by the attached photo, it looks like it was made for our new kitchen. Secondly, I just have to compliment you and your staff. From Deb our sales representative to the gentlemen who delivered our set, everyone has been so friendly and helpful. I know it’s not always easy to find good people when you own a business but you have lucked out. Please pass along our thanks to them for the great service.
By Frances and David Hughes
Buying furniture is about more than price, but price is very important. We want the quality but at a very good price. If not, we don’t buy. Over the past five years it seems that we almost always buy from Bennett’s. Because we get both.
I am a new customer of Bennett’s, as my family relocated from abroad over the summer. I recently purchased a living room set from the Peterborough location. I must say that the product is wonderful and the service well surpassed my expectations. There was a slight mix-up with the original order but apparently Mr. Bennett himself, as was confirmed by the sales agent, handled the situation. I was floored to know that the owner himself cared so much and was so involved. I did not realize that such customer service still exists. In this day and age you tend to encounter businesses that only want the sale, and the customer satisfaction is not always a priority. Thank you Mr. Bennett and staff for being so welcoming and for caring for your customers. We will definitely recommend your store to others and will continue to support your business.
By Charles and Susan Declute
We had our delivery today of a Canadel dining room set. We really would like to express how pleased we are with Bennett’s Home Furnishings service. Our sales consultant, Jan Norman, was excellent and also Karen, who helped when Jan was on vacation. They were both patient and helpful. We like to shop and Bennett’s and have been a client at Bennett’s since 1999 because we do not feel pressured or rushed to make a decision. We’d like everyone at Bennett’s to know we are happy customers!
By The Hancock's
To Bennett’s Staff, We have always had great service through Bennett’s. We just replaced our couch/loveseat that we bought 18 years ago in Campbellford. Your delivery people graciously moved the old set to the basement. We want to make sure everyone knows what a wonderful job Rhonda and Jan did in assisting us over several store visits with choosing fabrics etc. What a wonderful team. Our son’s dining room set and sideboard were purchased in your Peterborough store last year and they live in Toronto. They too commented on the great product, knowledgeable staff and that the delivery service was the best they had ever had to their home! Rhonda provided excellent service and helpful comments at that time too. The delivery team was very friendly and professional. They were quick to deal with a small repair and pass on the information. Marylou and Jim in customer service gave a quick check up and care information. We have toured many other stores, but we love coming back to Bennett’s. The sales staff is friendly, not pushy, and helpful. Our daughter, who lives in Foxboro, recently bought a couch from Campbellford. They were impressed by the size and selection of furniture Campbellford carries. We still have several purchases to make for our family room and living room so we will be back soon! Thanks so much,
