At Ippolito's we offer tax free delivery, unlike most of our competitors who charge for delivery. For example all the major chain stores of Southern New Hampshire and Massachusetts charge for delivery to New Hampshire's Lakes Region, as much as $159 for a $1000 purchase; so you paid $1159 for your furniture. At Ippolito's you would only pay $1000, thats a 16% savings for you, and seeing in most cases our prices are lower, you will save even more. Now, so we are comparing apples to apples, lets say the delivery is in their back yard, the Boston area, they do charge less for delivery, lets average it at $75, but lets not forget the $62.50 sales tax on that $1000 purchase. By the way, Ippolitos does not charge the sales tax! Your delivered cost with tax would be $1137.50; buy it from Iippolitos it would be $1000 delivered. The bigger the purchase the bigger the savings, and, depending on the size of a purchase, we can offer tax free delivery throughout New England.
