You can really see the effects of this if you are ever in Thomasville or Lexington both have alot of empty store fronts and boarded up mill houses

We are a strong state we survived textile industry disappearance and will survive from this.

For quality I either go to Bombay Outlet or Thomasville Furniture Outlet, I love the Humprey Bogart collection and Ernest Hemingway collection. The sales lady I deal with there recently inform me they will have a good sale this coming Labor Day.

If you are really serious about finding quality furniture at reasonable prices make a road trip to Hickory or High Point. Enough selection to make your head spin. I hear the mom's n pop's stores along hwy 321 between Hickory and Lenoir are some of the best places to find deals. I went with a friend to Furnitureland South in High Point. The clearance center around back had some great prices and the place was bigger than a football field.

An old neighbor swears by Value City, she has bought some nice pieces there, but its hit or miss.

BigLots has some nice, relatively cheap furniture (though selection is small) and most is American made.

It's worth driving to Hickory to peruse the outlets on 321. You just need to know where to go, and what to look for.Moderator cut: tos violation that will save you quite a bit of money on quality furniture. Well worth the trip.

I like Rooms to Go. Not sure how great the quality is or their price in comparison to other places, but they had a lot of stuff that is our style - contemporary. Also went to Furniture Row Outlet on Independence to get a few things - good stuff BUT TERRIBLE SERVICE. It took about 3 months to get everybody due to forgetting to put stuff on the truck, stuff being messed up, etc.
