In Malay, Hari Raya means the ‘grand day of rejoicing’ and it is a very important festival for Muslims. For Hari Raya Puasa, people thoroughly clean and decorate their homes. As families and close friends will visit each other’s homes, making sure the house is presentable is something they take a lot of pride in.
People will start shopping for new furniture and kitchen appliances about 1-2 months before Hari Raya. It is one of the busiest periods for the furniture and appliances industry and these businesses will usually thrive during the Aidilfitri festivities, as the majority Malays typically reserve Hari Raya to splash cash.
Since the rise in popularity of online shopping in the past 2-3 years, the furniture and appliances industries have also jumped on the bandwagon. You will find that there are many companies with physical showrooms, also selling their products on their websites or on other e commerce platforms.
With so many businesses vying for a portion of the pie during this season, you can be assured of really great deals, whether it is at physical showrooms or online. Everyone will be pulling out all the stops.
So, look out for offers about 4-8 weeks before Hari Raya. Also remember that since it is the peak season, the lead time for delivery can be longer than usual. This is usually the case for sofas, bed and other furniture. Even if there is stock of the item that you want, often times, the issue could be with the shortage in delivery staff who are overloaded with an increase in deliveries during this season. So to prevent any disappointment or stress of not getting your sofa delivered in time for Hari Raya, our advice for you here from Home Space is to shop early.
At Home Space, our standard lead time for furniture or appliances that are in stock is 1-2 days. For customised mattress or sofa orders, it will be 10-14 days.
During the peak Hari Raya season, delivery lead time will increase to 2-3 days for furniture or appliances that are in stock and 15-25 days for customised mattress and sofa orders.
