Visitor Tips and News About Jordan's Furniture - Trapeze School, Water Show
IMAX theater has temperpedic seats and individual 'buttkicker' bass speakers - great place to see 3D movies.[Kathleen, 12/28/2010]
Jordan's is nice, but don't go out of your way to see it. The trapeze school, the fountain show and the items made to look like they used jelly beans to make them are worth a total of 10 minutes of your time. It's fun, but ultimately it's just a store. If you happen to be on a road trip on 128, stop in.[Raoul, 09/15/2007]
Although we'd rate it as more of a 20 minute stop (enough time to watch a little of the fountain show and monitor trapeze mishaps), we agree. This Jordan's is not as atmospheric or enthralling as the Natick store experience. Both are furniture stores, and both are free.
Awesome Jordan's Reading store has a trapeze in it. You can try it or watch experienced artists flip thru the air while selecting mattresses. I lived in Framingham next to Natick and visit Jordan's whenever we are home. Kellys Roast beef has a lunch counter in Jordan's furniture [at the Natick store, not Reading, which has a Fuddrucker's]. The first Kelly's is on Revere Beach and is open 23 hours a day. Kelly's should be a roadside museum -- lines all day long for their huge roast beef sandwiches.[Maureen, 08/08/2005]
Trapeze acts, furniture, roast beef -- the perfect combo!
At the Jordan's Furniture Store in Reading there is a town made out of jelly beans. All of the references are made about Massachusetts things, such as the Red Sox and the Big Dig. They have a gigantic liquid fireworks display inside along with a trapeze school where anyone coming in can give it a try if they're brave enough! There's also an Imax theater. I went the day before Easter since they sell every flavor going of jelly beans. Of course they also sell furniture. This place is so much fun to go to![Tracy Hale, 04/28/2005]
