On Memorial Day, most people will hear about the latest and greatest ways to save during the “biggest Memorial Day Sale ever”. However, at Living Designs Furniture we are going to close our doors so that we can commemorate that day for what it stands for. Memorial Day is not a day during the year when people should be focused on sales and deals. It is a day to remember the people who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in America and enjoy the freedoms that we have today. It is a day to pay respect to those people’s loved ones who are still living that sacrifice and missing their family member or friend who gave their life for us to enjoy ours.
What made us take a stand and close our doors on one of the biggest furniture sales days of the year? Youval Meicler, the owner of Living Designs Furniture and Texas Mattress Makers, decided to close the doors to all our retail stores and factory about five years ago. Even though this day was the most profitable day of the year, it made him sick to know he was profiting on a day where a sale is the last thing people should be concerned with. It is truly a disconnect when you hear “Happy Memorial Day” or “check out these Memorial Day Sales.” This is not the significance of what this day stands for and we are here to campaign that everyone goes back to the root of what this day means.
On this day we urge people to take 15 minutes and remember those that gave their lives so that they can have the freedom to go to a store any other day of the year and take advantage of a great deal. We believe people should remember that on this day we are remembering somebody’s son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, and wife. We are remembering and paying tribute to somebody’s loved ones who fought bravely and did not make it home just so we can live in America and have the best life possible. THIS is what the day is for, and this is what we will be doing on Memorial Day 2022.
Help us and choose to take a stand with us on that day and remember #MemorialDayMatters.
