North Carolina is well-known for being the home to many of the most recognizable brand names within the furniture industry. These outlets serve as an invaluable resource for anyone looking to purchase furniture for their home as many factory authorized manufacturers’ outlets are located throughout the state and in particular in the Hickory, NC region. Shopping the furniture outlets inside Hickory Furniture Mart offers several advantages. (Read more history here).
It is always better to visit a furniture store or factory outlet in person, if you are able to make the trip, because there is just so much to see and experience while inside the building (contact us for help planning a visit or plan a trip yourself). When you are physically inside the furniture store or factory outlet, you have the chance to sit on, feel and touch your furniture before ever purchasing it. You are able to speak with all of the helpful sales and design associates inside each showroom who have been trained and are experienced in knowing everything there is to know about the furniture brands they represent (if you are interested in working with a professional interior designer, we are able to provide you with custom design services while you are here as well). In some cases (like at Hickory Furniture Mart) you are able to speak with all of these home furnishings professionals in one convenient location, from furniture experts to seasoned interior designers, from dedicated rug and lighting galleries to a custom designer work room with thousands of premium fabrics to choose from in your favorite colors, patterns and styles.
Many of our furniture outlets source directly from the manufacturer and not from an independent wholesaler, which means there is no additional markup. This allows the outlet to pass along significant savings to the customer. Outlets offer incredible discounts up to 65-80% off most standard retail prices. (Our upcoming deals)
In addition to outlet discounts, another component of outlet shopping is that their inventory constantly changes so you will be sure to find new pieces each time you shop. If you do not find anything that fits your personal style preference during your initial visit, be sure to check back within a couple of weeks as new products arrive on a continuous basis. However this also means that if you find a piece that you would like to have in your home, it is important to purchase it within a timely manner because it may not be available during your next visit.
Outlet shopping is exciting because you never know what you might find! Outlets often offer market samples after the High Point Market takes place in the spring and fall. This means that you have the opportunity to purchase unique products that the manufacturer may never create again and these products are very durable as they are made to withstand the large crowds of buyers in attendance at each market.
Items Are Sold Off The Floor
If you are looking for furniture to purchase and take home with you immediately, then outlets are usually your best option. Most furniture outlets sell their product directly off the floor, which means there is absolutely no wait time for the manufacturing process to occur. You may load up your new furniture directly into your own vehicle to take home with you that day or arrange to have it shipped to your home by one of our professional consolidated shippers at a later date.
