Can all items be exchanged?
Unfortunately, not all merchandise is eligible for an exchange or return. We do not accept exchanges or returns on the following:
- Any items that have been damaged, abused, stained, mishandled, or used for commercial or institutional purposes may not be exchanged or returned.
- Any item sold as ‘Clearance’ or ‘As-Is’ or ‘Final Sale’ is not eligible for exchange or return.
- Appliances and electronics may not be exchanged. However, appliances and electronics may be exchanged within the extended warranty period as a result of a decision made exclusively by Lacks Appliance and Electronic Service Department.
- Pillows, sheets, bedspreads, and comforters may not be exchanged.
- Mattresses may be exchanged according to the terms of Lacks' Exclusive Comfort Guarantee or the manufacturer’s factory warranty. Additionally, mattresses within the extended warranty period may be exchanged as a result of a decision made exclusively by the GBS Warranty Service.
I fell in love with a ‘Clearance’ item, should I wait for the next big sale to buy?
Clearance items are limited in quantity and offer excellent value. These items have deep discounts as they are priced to clear out and make room for new merchandise on our showroom floors. Items on Clearance are a great choice for furnishing your home, but you must act quickly as they may not be available at a later time. We do not reorder clearance merchandise and once the current stock runs out, it’s gone for good.

How do I know if my furniture is genuine leather or faux‑leather?
We understand how important upholstery material can be when making your decision to purchase furniture. We do our best to provide you with the most accurate information so that you can make the choice that is right for you and your lifestyle. Knowing a few basic key differences between genuine leather and faux-leather or vinyl can help you make the decision when considering new furniture. To learn about the distinctions between leather and faux-leather,
How should I care for my genuine-leather upholstered item?
While it is very durable, genuine leather must be properly cared for to avoid staining and cracking. Extend the life of your leather product by cleaning it regularly. Use a clean, dry cloth as part of a basic cleaning routine as well as vacuuming between the crevices where build-up can occur. Using a leather conditioner once every 6-12 months will keep leather soft and help prevent cracks from developing. Be sure to read the instructions before applying any product to your leather items. Avoid any products not intended for leather as they may harm the protective coat or the leather itself. Do not use harsh chemicals or household cleaners. Alcohol-based and silicone-based formulas, such as those found in popular automotive cleaners, should not be used on genuine leather. To keep your leather furniture looking beautiful, never place in direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure to the sun may cause the leather to fade or crack. Note that this is intended as a general guide—always follow care instructions provided by the manufacturer.
How should I care for my faux-leather upholstered item?
Faux-leather refers to any leather-like upholstery fabric that is not made of animal rawhide or skin. This includes vinyl, polyurethane (PU), and bonded-leather. To extend the life of your faux-leather upholstered items, be sure to clean regularly with a dry microfiber cloth. To remove stains, wipe the surface with a non-abrasive cloth, using a mix of mild liquid detergent and soap. Ensure you have wiped away all the soap suds and water with a dry cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals, alcohol-based products, or household cleaners as they may break down the coating of the fabric. Note that this is intended as a general guide—always follow care instructions provided by the manufacturer. For more faux-leather info,
