About Between Four Walls
Darla Oaks had worked in the floor covering business for years when she became bored with that type of work. She decided she wanted to venture out on her own, and therefore, she opened her own furniture store. That type of business seemed to line-up with her work experience so Darla figured it would work out well.
Darla first opened the doors to her business she named Between Four Walls back in April of 2003, and considering that she still currently operates that furniture store nearly ten years later, it seems to have proven a wise career change indeed. Between Four Walls had originally operated at a Chestnut Street location, but Darla bought her current building located at 540 East Main Street in Bradford, Pennsylvania and moved into it back in December of 2011. She said the new building offered a better location for her business as well as extra space to enable her to expand in the future.
“I also bought the entire building to offer spaces for other small businesses at reasonable prices so they can survive, and they’re doing quite well. There are three other businesses currently in the building with more spaces available.”
Family Wellness & Chiropractic, Outback Performance & Repair and Grove & Burkett Alternator Repair & Service all share the building with Between Four Walls. Darla’s son owns and operates Outback Performance & Repair, where they offer service and inspections for motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles.
Darla employs three other people as part-time sales associates as well as a part-time maintenance worker. Her husband, Dan Oaks, also owns the business along with her, but he works separate from their business installing flooring for Shembeda Floor Covering, where Darla had worked prior to opening Between Four Walls.
Between Four Walls offers a wide range of home furnishings, but Darla said they mostly sell a lot of sofas, recliners and mattress and box spring sets more than their other offerings. They do a lot of custom orders from their customers as well, allowing them to choose different fabrics for their sofas and chairs. In addition to all they have in-store to offer their customers to choose from, they also offer free local home-delivery within about a 40-mile radius.
According to Darla, their customer service really sets Between Four Walls apart from other businesses. If customers call Between Four Walls looking for something, even if they don’t have that item available, Darla does her best to help them find what they’re looking for. They sometimes will even find the item available at another store and will direct the customer there so they can get it.
“I had a gentleman call me just this morning and ask where he could find bed rails to use so his elderly father doesn’t roll out of his bed. I found them somewhere else because I already knew where he could find them and I gave him that information.”
Darla said they also like to give back to the local community as well, so if you would like to receive their exemplary customer service as well as help to enable them to give back to their community, make sure you can find them by checking out the business hours and directions above.
