Q:

Where can you buy a Rio Barcalounger recliner?

A:

An examination of the current Barcalounger website, and the Barcalounger product line reveals that the Rio II is a discontinued model, not currently in production. Shopping for the Rio II will require either perusing retailer closeouts or searching online selling sites for information on the Barcalounger Rio II.

Though this model is not currently in production, a number of websites are still selling the recliner, including furniturecrate.com and theaterseat,com. Prices vary and given the Rio II's discontinued status finding exact color choices may prove problematic, as many sellers have only limited inventory and certain colors.

The nation's largest big-box discount retailer, Walmart, also offers discontinued Rio II recliners in three colors. Its website indicates that the product is actually shipped from the UnbeatableSale.com. This complicated web of relationships between retailers, wholesalers, web sellers and manufacturers is intrinsic now to online retailing. In comparison to traditional shopping, it leaves a lot of questions about responsibility and warranty. Customers are advised to read the fine print and know their exact legal options when buying from any seller that is unfamiliar.

Consumer review sites give customer comments for consumers looking for a perspective on both the integrity of online merchants and the value and reliability of the Rio II.
