SECAUCUS, N.J., March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Relentless rain and raging rivers have left many area residents in need. Factory Direct Furniture, which owns and operates five Ashley Furniture HomeStores, is determined to lend a helping hand to community members affected by the flooding.

Five Ashley Furniture HomeStores, located in Fairfield, Paramus & Secaucus, NJ and New Rochelle and Middletown, NY, are extending a special offer to flood victims. For a limited time, community residents with flood damage can save 20% off regularly priced merchandise or take advantage of 36 Months Special Financing.

There is no minimum purchase requirement for either offer and residents simply need to verify that their address is directly affected by flood to qualify.

"We've watched members of our communities rebuild year after year and just really wanted to do something to help out. Our hearts go out to those affected by the flooding and we hope that by extending this offer we can help residents get back some of the comforts of home that they lost," said CEO Eugene Chrinian.

The retailer's Ashley CARE (Community & Associate Relief Endowment) Program gives back by supporting families within their organization, the community and beyond with the greatest needs.

"We're not just a retailer, we're also members of the community. We all live here and work here and so do our families. We can't not do something," said Chrinian.

Through Ashley CARE, the retailer seeks to partner with families in need in many ways, including providing furnishings, partnering with food banks, and aiding in the development of community programs dedicated providing affordable housing, improving education and supporting youth development.
