The department store JC Penny does actually carry a quite large collection of dining room groups with tables and chairs in reasonable prices. These dining room furniture are made in various designs such as classic and contemporary and can be found in different colors and styles. Most of these dining room chairs and tables are made in hardwood with different finishes. It can make quite a big difference to switch your current dining table in the kitchen or in a more formal dining room. There are many different styles to choose from - some of these dining room groups would fit perfectly in a relaxed kitchen, whereas others would be more appropriate in a formal dining room.
You can find rectangular extension dining tables, hand carved dining tables as well as French country wood dining tables among other pieces. Another thing you should think about is whether you would prefer a complete matching set (there are lots of those to choose between here!) or if you would prefer a table and then separate chairs in a different style that break off a bit. This can certainly be a nice idea if you want to set your own style and maybe mix things up a bit, however if you want a very traditional look, then a matching set could be a better way to go. So if you're looking for affordable dining room groups, then JC Penny might be worth a visit. They have quite a few nice pieces and reasonable prices to match.
