Partnering with the world's largest furniture store
Since their start in 1969, our partnership with Furnitureland South has helped them achieve unprecedented success. Hear CEO, President and Co-owner, Jeffrey Harris, tell their compelling story.
So it's pretty special when you can say you're the largest furniture store in the world. 1.3 million square feet. I mean, it's like a trip to a home decorating theme park. My role was just to make sure that we've got a shared vision with the organization and making sure that we have the right people in the right places. And it's really just such a fun, creative business to be a part of.
I love to see people come in with their blueprints and the projects that they're working on. And that means that they trust our company. I think one of the biggest challenges we have is consumer behavior. It moves and it changes and it evolves.
20 years ago, we probably had 25 competitors in this area that have very similar business models to Furnitureland South. There's very few of those are left today. And I think one of the reasons that we've kind of been the last company standing throughout some of these challenging times over the last 20 years is that we really have focused on our customers. We've really focused on the logistic side of the business.
We could not have done it without the help of First Citizens Bank. They were there, you know, from the very beginning with Furnitureland South when my parents started the business back in 1969. And they've just asked us the questions, you know, what is it that we can do to support your business? What is it that we can do to help you grow your business so that, you know, we can all generate and be mutually beneficial here? And they are still our business partner and our banking partner. So it's been quite a journey. Those people at First Citizens Bank have really taken care of us. And they've just been the epitome of a wonderful partnership.
