Hello! I am just arriving in Raleigh and would like to find a place to buy good and affordable furniture. Any suggestion? Someone told me that there is a street with differente furniture stores. Is that right? Thanks.

They may have been referencing Glenwood Ave., there are quite a few stores there. There are a lot of options, depending on the quality you seek. I even went in a store at Crossroads in Cary (I think it was Furniture 123 - apparently they are the revamped 'Ashley' furniture stores in this region) that sold sets at pretty cheap prices. There are lots of people here on the forum that could probably give you better direction if you can specify a bit more what you're hoping to find...good luck!

You are probably thinking of Glenwood Ave, which is lined up and down with furniture stores of various prices. There are a few affordable showrooms, just go on in and take a look. There is even a Rooms to Go, which is extremely affordable.

RoomsToGo has terrible customer service (I experienced it, and others have shared their experiences on City-Data. It's not worth it.)

I would visit the furniture stores on Glenwood Avenue to check prices and see what they have.

Then:

Craigslist

Sam's Club for mattresses and sometimes they have leather furniture

Ikea in Charlotte (seriously) or just look for Ikea on Craiglist. I believe you can pay someone to go Charlotte, pick it up, and deliver it to you, too.

Big Lots gets so descent name brand furniture that's inexpensive. They also have so that doesn't seem so great, so you have to look around.

I checked out a LOT of places along Glenwood to find living room furniture. I have to say - I wasn't impressed... the value (quality vs. price) of the furniture isn't great - I thought all the prices were higher than they should have been. I've also been to various furniture stores in other areas of the Triangle.

I've been to Heavner Furniture in Smithfield - they are pretty cheap, but I'd say a lot of pieces are not of great quality. There is also one on Glenwood - but I don't think it's as big.

I've also lived in a place that was fully furnished with IKEA. IKEA is ok for a short period of time, but that sort of furniture doesn't last too long - it begins to show wear fairly early (saggy, wobbly, etc.)

Craigslist is great for wood furniture - or anything you can clean up yourself.

I actually just purchased some living room furniture (upholstered furniture) from a family store called Compton Furniture in Burlington, NC. It's about 45 mins to an hour NW of Raleigh. I was very pleased with the experience, furniture quality and price. As somebody who has looked pretty much EVERYWHERE - I thought this place was great.

There are so many furniture stores. I ended up buying some furniture at Home Comfort (they have a couple of locations...one on Glenwood and one on Capital). The sales people are nice and laid back. No hard sells. The prices are reasonable. Ended up with a couch, love seat and coffee table.
I bought some great furniture from ads on Craigslist...tables and chairs (real wood).

Rolesville Furniture is having a sale - their prices are generally very good and they have a decent sale on all and Ashley furniture right now. Local business, not some chain.
