Lumber Liquidators Announces 11th Annual April Sale

10:00 EDT Tuesday, April 22, 2014

~ Sale's roots epitomize 20-year-old company's purpose and culture

TOANO, Va., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, is holding its 11th annual April Sale with once-a-year deals and discounts on all of its 340 flooring varieties at more than 330 retail locations. 

Lumber Liquidators.

The sale, which is running from April 24 through April 28, started in the spring of 2004 when Lumber Liquidators' Founder and Chairman Tom Sullivan faced challenges for his fast-growing company.

"It's not by chance that our big sale is in April," said Mr. Sullivan. "In 2004, my accountant came to me and warned that we needed to pay taxes by April 15th and that we were not going to have enough funds, so we quickly put together a huge sale to offer our overstock hardwood flooring at incredible prices. People loved the deals and we paid our taxes just in time!"

The sale's success has become legendary in Lumber Liquidators' culture. Lines wrapped around its stores on the first day and, 11 years later, the sale has grown into a five-day event that customers look forward to all year.

"Our April Sale is an example of why Lumber Liquidators has grown for 20 years. People want great deals, not gimmicks," said Mr. Sullivan. "It's not about big fancy buildings in high-rent areas. It's about quality, price and knowledgeable people."

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Lumber Liquidators is adding some twists to this year's April Sale. Along with once-in-a-lifetime deals, the company is offering 20-month financing on all flooring and is holding a "Share the Sale" sweepstakes where both the winner and a friend receive $2,000 worth of flooring.
