We believe America is the great country that it is because we have the freedoms to make the decisions that are best for our families, run businesses, and practice whatever religion we choose. However, the freedoms we are so blessed to experience today were paid for by many of our fellow citizens, people who have fought to uphold the liberties of our great nation.

This Memorial Day, the Living Designs Furniture and Texas Mattress Makers showrooms will be closed on May 28th. We will be closed to honor the brave men and women that paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our country, our freedoms, our family, and our friends. Texas Mattress Makers & Living Designs Furniture President, Youval Meicler, served in the Israeli Army. Youval truly understands the bravery, respect, heartache, and importance of this national holiday. Youval lost many of his close friends and has personally experienced the reason why we stop and reflect on their sacrifices each Memorial Day.

Regaining the Significance of Memorial Day

In America, Memorial Day has become a major furniture sale day. Every furniture retailer has record sales Memorial Day weekend as families are off from work and looking for activities to explore and items to purchase. However, we encourage everyone to pause this Memorial Day. Instead, show respect to our military families. Give a kind word to a veteran. Donate to a non-profit that supports the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

For this reason, we will not be having a “Memorial Day Sale” and we will be closed on Memorial Day.  Stay tuned to our Special Offers page to learn how you can still SAVE HUGE this month and receive the great service, high-quality products, and low factory direct pricing you and your family deserve.

May 28th, Memorial Day –Living Designs Furniture and Texas Mattress Makers, our sister store, will be closed.

One holiday many people aren’t aware of, but that certainly deserves to exist and be recognized, celebrates our most loyal four-legged companions: dogs.
