Hickory, North Carolina can trace its furniture history back to the earliest part of the twentieth century when a young merchant by the name of George W. Hall along with an entrepreneurial group of local businessmen and bankers began building furniture in the North Carolina town.
By 1960, a handful of furniture manufacturers gathered for the first time to display their products to retail dealers. This wholesale exhibition transitioned in 1985 to what we now know as Hickory Furniture Mart. The Mart, which has become the nation’s leading home furnishings resource, proudly celebrated its 50th anniversary with their customers, tenants, manufacturers, vendors and countless friends within the furniture industry in 2010.
