OUR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

accred_bus_web_blackThe Wellsville Group has been an accredited member of the BBB for 48 years maintaining a consistent A+ rating. We strive to provide an “old school, crazy good experience” to all of our customers. In 2014 our Greece, NY Ashley HomeStore was chosen as HomeStore of the Year out of 552 HomeStores across the country. This award was given because we saw large growth in business volume, the people are very giving in their charitable initiatives and only received one consumer business complaint at the corporate level.

OUR IMPACT

We strive to make an impact in each of the communities we serve. In 2016, we gave back over $130,000 to various charitable initiatives such as: Hope to Dream – delivering over 200 new mattress sets to children in need, United Way, and other various furniture, gift card and cash donations to agencies in need. We believe that a well furnished home is filled with a happy family.

We take our impact on the environment seriously.  In each of our Preparation and Distribution Centers, we recycle all cardboard, plastic, Styrofoam and other reusable materials, to make sure we are doing our part in caring for the environment. Last year, we recycled 400 tons of packing/shipping materials as part of our efforts to go green!
