The highly anticipated Bob’s Discount Furniture is now open at Desert Ridge Marketplace—one of two new Arizona locations (the second being in Gilbert). The expansion into a new market and the selection of Vestar locations shows the strength and viability of the brand and the centers despite the recent challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bob’s Discount Furniture was founded on the principle of providing unsurpassed value with honesty and integrity, according to the store. Bob Kaufman, the founder of Bob’s Discount Furniture, says that he believes that everyone should have the opportunity to purchase stylish and quality furniture at affordable prices. Bob’s Discount Furniture also takes pride in putting the “fun” in furniture. Bob’s everyday low prices, 365 days a year, take the haggle out of furniture shopping to create a more enjoyable experience, according the company.

“Bob’s Discount Furniture truly exemplifies a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that delivers quality products at remarkable prices,” says Jenny Cushing, vice president of leasing at Vestar. “These stores are the perfect complement to Vestar’s unique outdoor properties and our promise to deliver value, variety and experience to our communities, especially during these uncharted times.”

In addition to furniture, Bob’s Discount Furniture offers a wide selection of mattresses and an array of home furnishings, including rugs, bedding, curtains, lamps, mirrors and wall décor – all of which can be purchased easily and safely with a scheduled in-store appointment, online or by phone. Bob’s Furniture also ensures shoppers’ safety with no-contact delivery and pick-up options in addition to their white-glove delivery service, according to the company. Bob’s has been recognized by the “Boston Globe,” “Furniture Today,” and various other retail publications for its safety precautions in response to the coronavirus.

“The Bob’s team is thrilled to be growing our brand in the great state of Arizona. The Desert Ridge Marketplace and Crossroads Towne Center are leading retail hubs in the Phoenix-metro area,” says Kevin Parker, zone vice president of West Coast store operations.

Bob’s Discount Furniture at Desert Ridge Marketplace is located near DSW and PetSmart on the South side of the shopping center. For more information about Bob’s Discount Furniture, visit
