We are moving into our new home in Waxhaw (Lawson) mid-July and want to buy all new furniture. Knowing that NC is the furniture capital of the world; Can we get the same pricing in Charlotte as let's say...Thomasville or the other manufacturing towns. We are not looking for the "Room to Go" quality (please, no offense) but maybe mid-level. Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Signed: Finally getting out of South Florida !

My wife and I did very well at Ashley. There is also an outlet center in SC just outside of Waxhaw. Maybe someone will chime in with the name as I have already forgotten it.

We did awesome too at ashley bought a cherry/brown pub style kitchen set with 2 bar stools and got a fantastic price, and it is solid wood not Veneer wood plus funny story I knew the Salesmans wife from jersey, as they lived 10 min from house..LOL...but she worked at one of the stores at the outlets so he was a pleasure to deal with..They are opening a brand new store in Concord, we went to the one on 74, personally better choice than carolina place and much nicer....

My kids furniture came from Tyndall Furniture, beautiful stuff also reasonable..

Also check out havertys.com

Her name is Tina..real nice stuff also really nice prices..they are at carolina place as well...

Happy Shopping

We went to The Furniture Mart in Hickory. (Hickory Furniture Mart). There are so many great manufacturers are represented there; Drexel Heritage, Lane, Thomasville, etc. They're have a great big sale July 27th, I think.
Thomasville just had a fantastic sale. Keep your eyes open to sales at High Point after market too. Usually in May and November. I have found that the furniture stores in the Charlotte area have very competitive prices as well.

The places lately I have been going for quality furniture is Bombay Outlet store in Gaffney SC it not that far out and you get to see the water tower shaped like a peach (I actually thought it was shaped like someones bum first time I saw it LOL) There also other outlet stores in same location pottery barn, gap outlet, bannana republic , coach etc.

For thomasville furniture I go to the outlet store in thomasville they always carry at some point what the main store has. There is a sales lady who I can recommend to you who is very helpful making sure I pick the right items and she great with matching fabric. If you want her to send you a brochure send me a p.m.
It is a cute furniture town that has a tall chair statue in the city center and you can pick up some that bbq everyone raves about.

Thanks for all the tips. I have been fuming over furniture prices here (furniture row in Pineville - we rent now in Ballantyne). Up in Huntersville we found that prices are also nuts - ie. $900 for a wicker ottoman and $1600 for the chair - I know it's pretty, but it's made of straw!! You can get a whole sofa for less. When you see prices higher than Pottery Barn catalog you know they are outrageous.

Also, be sure to shop around: my DH and I are looking for the bed to match our Aspen bedroom furniture set - one place quoted us $1500, another $1250 and the last $810, all for the same item. So, definitely shop around if you have a specific piece you need.

Oakwood is kind of factory direct shop in Thomasville. They carry several brands at around 20% lower than the stores.

They deliver to Huntersville for flat rate 175$.

Their collection is very good.
