Unfortunately I am in Oregon, I wonder how much these things would cost to ship around?

On the K-mart website, I thought I remembered it was about $65 shipping on the two-arm. Good luck in your search...

Just picked up 7 of these at my local Kmarts. Very pleased with them so far and I couldn't beat the clearance prices.

I bought 7 of these from the local K-Mart in Rochester NY. We LOVE them. We got them on sale for $130ea. The deal was so good that we had to do it. We actually got two spare just in case. Here they are:

Anyone find these on Long Island? I used the "Check Availability" button on the site but nothing happens...

Does anyone know of any deals similar to this? They do not have any in stock in the Oregon area and they will not ship the two arm chair.

I was able to pick up 4 of the 2 arm chairs from a Kmart here in Utah. Unfortunately they did not have any of the 1 arm chair available. Has anyone tried to take one of the arms off of the two arm models to join a row. I hope that makes sense

K-Mart/Sears has announced they are closing 1000-120 stores.
http://money.cnn.com/2011/12/27/news...mart_closings/

Maybe that's why the check availability link isn't working.

Last weekend, I noticed the Sears in Cool Springs Galleria (Nashville) had two two-arm chairs on display in their electronics department, on the floor seating to demo a 3D TV set up. Don't know if these floor models were sell-able, especially at the firesale prices that K-mart had recently...

Just picked up one 2 arm chair and three 1 arm chairs to make a row of four from the local Kmart in upstate NY. I didn't think they would have any since the phaseout began awhile ago but I was in the store and happened to come across some. About $500 for a row of four. I decided to sell the current couch because I just couldn't pass it up.

Does anyone have information about these:

Since I can't find the Kmart chairs anywhere, these Target ones seem like the next best thing.

Seems to have the exact same style square plastic feet as the K-mart chairs. Probably coming out of the same factory...

I like the wedge @ $129, too.

Target is having by one get one 50% off with free shipping. Each one comes to about ~$210. Any one in NJ need an odd amount to split the cost on a set?

I just picked up four of the single arm version of these (couldnt pass up the $88 price tag). Unfortunately they didnt have any of the double armed ones, nor do any in the area. Any ideas as to how hard it would be to build a side armrest/legs for the fourth chair?

If you live in the northeast there is a discount furniture chain called bob's. They have a seat called the "box office" that appears to be the same as a berkline 12011, http://www.mybobs.com/Boxoffice. When I looked underneath at the company label it was stated the model as 12011. So my guess is its a re-badged berkline model made exclusivlely for this chain.

Its a fake leather with power recline and removable swivel snack tray. Brand new these chairs are 1300 for 4 but they have a scratch/dent area call "the pit" and if you find them there they are heavily discounted. A single arm chair is 200 and a 2 arm chair is 300. Not bad for a power recline berkline. The ones I got look new and unused but they did have some that had small scraps/scuffs. The power recline was very smooth and quiet. The guy there said they get them in every now and then a lot of times its when I cusomer ordered them but then changed their mind or refused delivery, then they go right to the pit becasue they can't sell them as new.
