The holidays are upon us!

The holidays are upon us! It’s that time of year when shopping commences in full force and families are sharing meals and exchanging gift ideas. We celebrated lovely Thanksgiving meals with our families and had the day to enjoy it. The BuyWise stores are now set with all the gift items you could need. From PS4’s to new TV’s, laptops to sound systems, and all the home furnishings one could want, we are stocked and looking forward to YOU stopping by. We have the latest looks from ASHLEY in living rooms and bedrooms, with sofas and loveseats you will find hard to locate anywhere else. Our 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS, which we are super excited about, starts December 10th. We’ll be giving away lots of great gifts you’d be happy to share, including LANE recliners, TV’s, mattress sets, and more. It’s going to be lots of fun, so be on the lookout via FACEBOOK for the giveaways to start.
