As Cindy Soriano shopped for mattresses at El Centro’s Imperial Home Galleries’ going-out-of-business sale on Monday, she had bittersweet feelings about the great deals. “I can’t believe we saved over $2,000,” she said. Soriano spent $500 on mattresses and box springs for what were originally worth $2,595. Soriano, of El Centro, said she realizes the root of the bargains. “It’s kind of like a win-and-lose situation because we’re getting such good-quality products for such a low price, and it’s a loss because people are losing their jobs,” she said.

HELP: I am requesting help in contacting the manager or owner of an El Centro furniture store. I purchased a dining room set from the store but when it was delivered, I was unhappy with it. Although I had carefully measured before I made my decision, the table and chairs overpower the room and make it seem cramped. I immediately called the salesperson and told her my problem. She told me since it was a special order she couldn?t do anything for me. (Although it was ordered from the manufacturer specifically for me, there is nothing custom about the set. It is a regular stock item for that manufacturer.

It takes a lot of time and energy to shop around for the best deal, and to find what best fits your needs now and in the future. That?s why we understand how the county can spend more than $500,000 on furniture. The county is a big governmental operation, and it takes money to outfit it. People need to have chairs and desks (although couches and wet bars should still be off limits, we believe)

For many of us who are reading this article, we will be gathering with our family and friends, sharing meals, gifts and laughter during this Holy Season. During these last two weeks, the Sister Evelyn Mourey Center, whose vision is to serve the community of the Imperial Valley, has seen several families that come to our center experiencing poverty or unjust situations. These families will not be sharing meals, gifts or laughter during Christmas unless someone can help and hear their cry. One is a couple who were able to rent a small mobile home without a stitch of furniture.
