The big bargains, though, are downstairs in the Porter Square store and to the rear in the Somerville branch. This stock may be a bit more worn, but there sure is a lot of it nearly all on sale at better than half-off the original retail price. A Steelcase swivel chair, worth $450 new, was seen recently for $100; a $300 wood-and-tweed guest chair for $89; computer tables for $75 and up; file cabinet after file cabinet for $50 and up. If you're setting up one of those modular offices with free-standing panel walls, you can get used panels here for just $25 per linear foot; new panels can cost as much as $500 apiece.
