Everyone keeps telling me that NC has awesome inexpensive furniture, but when I go to the stores it's MORE than what I would pay here in MI. My aunts tell me they order their furniture from a wholsaler?, through a catalogue and it is shipped to their home. She says I should I be able to go their directly and pick up my pieces. Anyone have any names or places of these furniture direct/ wholesaler places?

I use Direct Buy. If you have a lot of shopping to do for your home, it's worth it. There is a membership fee but if you shop enough, you will save more in the long run. We have bought a washer, dryer, fridge, pool table, table top, chairs, end tables/coffee tables, bar stools, china cabinet, etc. I am very happy with it and we've gotten our money out of it and then some. But we were a young couple that needed everything. It takes a while to get the furniture, though, and if I'm in a hurry for something, I buy it elsewhere. There may be some other options if you search the threads...

North Carolina use to make good quality furniture and alot of it was made local but most of operations like textile are being produced overseas. You will more likely end up with something made with venner than made of oak, pine cherry. Always ask the sales person is it cherry finish or actual wood etc.

There are loads of furniture stores in the high point area but and probably will be empty buildings within 10 years.

Yes, try Unclaimed Furniture in Hickory. Also, Mecklenburg Furniture on Providence Rd is going out of business, so try them. Also, try the "scratch and dent" rooms at the furniture stores. Often times the damage will be something on the back of a sofa, like a small rip for example that no one will see. That is what unclaimed furniture sells. But most of the deals are in Hickory. Big Lots furniture usually has some surprisingly good deals as well.

Honeycutt Furniture in Kannapolis allows you to do exactly as you asked: order through catalogues, pick your fabrics that the factories offer, customize your order, and they ship it to Honeycutt, and it is a million times less expensive than retail stores.

I always seem to find a good deal at the Thomasville Furniture Outlet Store in Thomasville. Nice quality and what I like about that store is whatever the main line is it will eventually make it thru that store.

It a good way to see a quaint small town North Carolina and only about a hour drive from Charlotte.

It is near this eighteen-foot chair near the city center

I know this lady at that outlet store who is awesome in helping match fabrics and picking the right pieces if you want me to refer you to her click my name then click view profile then send message

They have this cool restaurant called biscuitville as soon as you get off interstate and they have good made from scratch biscuits.

I stop in there on way to the beach and they saw I had our dog and they was nice enough to give us a doggy biscuit lol a biscuit shaped like a bone.

And after your shopping stop in lexington for some bbq

I have a friend down here who swears by Furnitureland South. I think they're in Hickory, and he said they have a huge showroom with very good prices. I've also heard some good things about Rose Furniture.

Personally, I bought most of my furniture at Boyles near Carolina Place. They weren't the absolute cheapest place for the brands that we chose (maybe 3-5% higher than some other dealers in the Hickory area), but they did offer interest free financing for 18 months and were local, so that made it worth the slightly higher cost for us.
