Has anyone been out to the Thomasville Furniture Outlet in Greensboro? My wife and I are wondering if the prices and selection are worth the ride?

Yes I have been and NO it wasn't worth it. I thought the prices were practically the same as the store and the selection of stuff they had was very poor. Some of it looked like it had been sitting there since 1980. There were two items in the place (which is pretty small) that I would have bought. But the savings were not enought to make me buy them. I went to Furniture Land SOuth and made all my purchases. Also the Thomasville store across from FLS is very nice. Excellent customer service and their prices were slightly lower than the Thomasville in Raleigh. I have also been to the Thomasville outlet in Hickory and their prices were the same as the stores.

The Thomasville furniture outlet in greensboro is closing but the one in thomasville is still open. The outlet carries same line as the stores do at some point. My favorite is the Humprey Bogart collection then the Ernest Hemingway collection.

From my understanding you have to go the store itself before ordering a product and they have the best deals usually around holidays and I am not sure if they are having a sale for fourth of july the best sales are memorial day and labor day.

Furniture making use to be big in this state but most of it is going overseas for production so finding a good crafted furniture made with quality wood is becoming a thing of the past, but right now I been pleased with the quality of the furniture.

If you decide to go there let me know I can recommend one of the sales ladies she was very helpful with making sure I chose correct fabrics and colors and she was nice enough to send me a brochure before I made the trip.

I guess I like going to the thomasville location since it right next to their headquarters and plants so I been please with the selection in stock.

I worry about our furniture industry, although the chip mills will do well making sawdust for cheap imported stuff.

Why bother with Thomasville? I went to MANY furniture stores in that area last month.. I decided to get a hotel room and spend a few days furniture shopping. One of the stores that I went to was over 1 million SQ ft. - There were so many nice pieces of furniture, great discounts too!

You must be referring to Furniture Land South . One way to tell if you are buying authentic is by the craftman ship and make of the wood if it says maple finish then it is not maple but something else and it is ok to ask how it is finished and where. North Carolina use make 90 percent of this nation furniture but now is down to ten percent

Where is Furniture Land South? The website says Jamestown, NC at the bottom of their web page but not sure if this is the actual location or just their mailing address. Thanks!

It probably in Jamestown district but I always consider it High Point
-40W to I-85S through Raleigh/Durham
I-85S through Greensboro to Business 85S (Exit 118)
Approximately 2+ miles on the right

Im not sure how accurate the second part is but since they have remodel 85 in greensboro just stick with buisness 85 South all the way through once you reach 85 and buisness 85 split. It around 2 hour trip. No significant time difference going either part of 85

If you miss the first buisness 85 exit and take the "new" 85 that merges off on the left you will do ok once that ends a different buisness 85 will emerge again on the right with an emphasis on High Point at this point you want to be on the right side of Grandover Resort on the interstate.

I know it seems confusing and I am trying to explain it best I can for someone who might not be aware of buisness 85 and "new" 85 in this area. but once you get past this point it is smooth selling you will be looking for a huge chest
