Bob's Discount Furniture Arrives

As do Bob's celebrated ads

by Micheline Maynard

From the August, 2021 issue

Anyone who's lived in the northeast is probably familiar with the TV commercials for Bob's Discount Furniture. The star, Bob Kaufman, who founded the chain in Newington, Connecticut, in 1991, appeared as a Claymation figure and enjoys a cult following among animation aficionados.

Now, those ads are airing on Detroit television, and Bob's Discount Furniture has arrived in Cranbrook Village.

Bob's boasts "quality furniture at affordable prices," with offerings that range from bedroom, living room, and dining room sets to rugs and decorative objects. Customers can make one-on-one shopping appointments, and curbside pickup is available.

If they do shop in person, there are cookies, candy, coffee, and ice cream available.

Bob's Discount Furniture, 890 W. Eisenhower, (734) 800-3431. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-7 p.m.     (end of article)
