Upcountry Warehouse Store - January 23, 2008
4 out of 9 people found this review helpful. UpCountry has had new owners since the bankruptcy and is staying in business.

I read a number of posts here that make me think that many of them were posted by other stores.

If you have not been to the store in 2008 everything posted before is no longer current or relevant. The owners in 2007 were going bankrupt and did go bankrupt. The store is no longer owned by them and is no longer dealing with many of the previous suppliers who were selling the cheap Chinese made furniture. This furniture is still widely sold in Toronto so if you want it you can find it easily.

Most of what UpCountry is selling now is made in Canada with less than half of its items imported according to the new owners.

Go to King Street and ask the staff or the owner (he is around quite a bit) anything you want about the furniture. And take what you read elsewhere here with a grain of salt.

I recommend this place.

Upcountry - January 23, 2008
5 out of 8 people found this review helpful. UpCountry is owned by different people than before the bankrupcy.

The store is not selling Elite product anymore. There is some in the basement being sold off at a discount but I did not see any upstairs.

Most of the product is made in Canada now.

The store has many new suppliers and the displays look very fresh and interesting.

The store is not the same as before. The owners are new, the furniture is new, the designs are new.

If you have not been there in 2008 you do not know what you are talking about.

BTW the Elite furniture is still sold all over town. GH Johnston still sells a ton of it. If you want Elite go there.

I recommend this place.
