Hi, I’m Gates. I started GAC Furniture as a means to help supplement my income in order to have better opportunities for my two young children. The whole idea was to have some flexibility in my schedule for them, as well as offer a great bargain for buyers who are tired of the ridiculous markup furniture retailers usually have.
What I found was that by making my schedule more flexible, I was able to save buyers even more money by running the business as efficiently as possible. My place isn’t pretty, and I don’t sit around waiting for people to come by and buy something, but if you want the best deal on mattresses and furniture, give me a call – I’ll set up a time to meet you there, and I will give you a great deal on mattresses and bedroom furniture.
All of our displays and inventory are in a small warehouse in an office park. This is essentially our only operating cost. Most furniture stores are spending literally tens of thousands of dollars per month on rent in a high traffic location. Even the “discounters” who have a small warehouse showroom are paying $3,000 – $5,000 per month in rent alone. For just a fraction of that, we have a perfectly “plain” but effective location for you to buy the same furniture and mattresses without having to mark it up dramatically to cover this expense.
Have you ever seen an ad for a furniture store on TV? How about in the newspaper? Billboards? You get the point. Every one of these forms of advertising is hugely expensive, and the stores have to make up that cost somehow. Guess who pays for it in the end? You guessed it – you do! Our advertising budget is virtually non-existent. The vast majority of our business comes from CraigsList ads (free) and word-of-mouth referrals (also free).
Not everyone needs delivery. You can save money by picking up your mattresses and furniture. In most cases, we can safely tie your mattress to most cars. We have tied up to queen mattress and box sets on cars and SUVs. We can provide the rope and tie it down for you at no charge. If you do need delivery, even with rising gas prices, we are holding the line on our delivery costs. Delivery into your home starts at only $30 up to 15 miles. We can deliver further for a small additional charge.
Most stores have multiple sales people who must be paid a commission on every sale. Each person employed at a traditional store represents tens of thousands of dollars in expense. My name is Gates, and I’m the owner. When you call or text, you will reach my cell phone. When you come in, you will either meet with me, or if I’m not available, one of my assistants, Sudwyn or Mike. And since we work on a appointment basis, we are only working when we have a customer… If we deliver for you, you will meet either Mike or Danny, depending on what day we deliver. That’s it. This allows us to keep expenses, and ultimately, prices, as low as humanly possible. In order for a store to remain in business, they must cover all of these tens of thousands of dollars of monthly expenses, and guess who ultimately pays them? You guessed it – You do! Unlike the stores, we can cover 100% of our monthly operating expenses in a day or two, and that means that we don’t have to mark our products up by several hundred dollars just to stay in business. We are able to offer the same products, from the same manufacturers, with the same warranties for a fraction of the price.

I needed a bed frame and mattress delivered and assembled within two days. I texted Gates at 2 am and he responded promptly the next morning! He was able to accommodate my short notice and budget needs. Though I did get the most inexpensive mattress, I am satisfied with the quality and how it looks like it cost a lot more than it actually is. I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely recommend to my friends.
This is the best deal for some of the best quality furniture I’ve ever come across. Gates is awesome! He’s helpful and always willing to give you the best price possible. He even came out to my house after delivery to fix a piece of the bed that was assembled backwards so I didn’t have to worry about it myself. Now I am back a year later to furnish my living room and dining room with him! Always recommending people to him and am a customer for life! still loving the same bamboo mattress and black bedroom set with leather that’s still in excellent non chipped condition.
My boyfriend and I wanted to upgrade to a Cal King mattress from a Queen. After browsing several local OC furniture stores, I stumbled upon Gates’ shop in Tustin. We made an appointment and met with him the same day. Gates is very knowledgeable about the items he has in stock, is more than willing to special order something for you, and there’s zero pressure to buy. He wants to help people out and save them money. Great service, great small business. Recommended for anyone who doesn’t want to get ripped off by furniture stores. You won’t regret buying from Gates.
