GA!: Tell us about the history of your store.
Greg: My grandfather started the business 65 years ago selling bedroom suites out of his garage. My parents continued the business, but with the ever-changing economy, we transitioned into a more specialized store with different concepts. We are continually moving toward the future with experience from the past.
GA!: What types of products and services do you offer?
Greg: We have an 8,500 square foot Bassett design center, Catnapper/Jackson gallery, Hillsdale dining ensemble, Spring Air sleep center, and accents by Uttermost and Stylecraft. We also carry American made (Carolina built) Temple and Parker southern fine custom upholstery. In addition, we offer interior design. Delivery is available within a 60 mile radius and removal of old products is always offered.
GA!: What’s new?
Greg: We have been very excited to open Next Chance Consignment & Boutique. It offers new and consigned furniture, décor, and vintage antique and artisan booths. It has been a great complement to what we do and has created even more excitement and creativity.
GA!: Are there any upcoming sales or events?
Greg: Yes. Please plan to attend our Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 15 from 10 AM – 4 PM. We will be decked out for Christmas with many holiday items for sale. Light food and beverages will be provided, as well as a free raffle. There will be a lot of new merchandise and special pricing, so don’t miss this time of fellowship!
GA!: What do you consider most important moving forward?
Greg: In order to achieve success in this challenging economy, you must remain positive. We continue to provide a fair, honest and ethical environment. The customers are the most important element, and handling them from start to finish is vital. We have been blessed to have such loyal and repeat customers. Our philosophy is to create a warn environment where the customers can feel at ease during their purchase process. We looks forward to serving customers’ furniture and interior needs for many years to come.
