JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. - An Upstate New York based furniture and mattress retailer is celebrating its distinction as a great place to work.
Raymour and Flanigan has been recognized by the organization that calls itself Great Place To Work.
The retail chain, which has a location in Johnson City across from the Oakdale Mall, had 96% of its workers say they felt welcome when they joined the company, according to a survey.
Founded 65 years ago in Syracuse, Raymour and Flanigan prides itself on having everything on display also in stock, offering 7 day a week delivery and providing its own financing and protection plans.
JC Store Manager Erin O'Connor says the family that owns the company remains accessible and takes suggestions from their associates.
"We want to keep them happy so that they're able to keep our customers happy. And just have an environment where people want to come to work every day. Obviously, you're going to be faced with challenges, but just having the desire to want to handle those challenges every day, just gives you an empowering feeling," O'Connor says.
He says the employees decided that to celebrate the new distinction, they decided that Raymour and Flanigan should extend their Friends and Family pricing of up to 20% off to all customers this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
