Wohlers have always prided themselves on listening to their customers.
It all started as a bit of joke between customers and staff “Can I trade in my old recliner?” that led to Wohlers GM, James Wohlers offering a service to not only help the customer with their old furniture, but also to support local charities.
“We kept hearing from our customers about the hassle of getting rid of their old furniture,” said James.
“It’s not just the time but having to hire a trailer, call in favours from friends and family and then paying dump fees.
“The feedback has been amazing. We just love that we can now offer a trade in and removal service to all our Wohlers’ customers.”
James wanted to go beyond this and saw an opportunity to give back to the community.
“There are so many local charities that rely on the support from business and we love that we can give back,” said James.
“All traded furniture is offered to local charities for free.”
One such local place is Wheatfields Inc. an aged care facility in Freeling.
A community owned not for profit organisation,Wheatfields relies on government funding and the generosity of local businesses.
Wheatfields administration manager, Ann O’Donnell has received two recliners donated by Wohlers for use by their residents.
“These chairs have been used in our respite rooms and they provide great comfort to our residents,” said Ann.
“We are very grateful to Wohlers for their donation.”
Wohlers trade in offer is not only applicable to recliners, it includes lounges, mattresses, dining tables, outdoor furniture – in fact any furniture.
