Furniture Shopping: “20 Miles of Furniture”
Thousands of people visit Lenoir each year with one thing on their minds — furniture. With 20 miles of furniture stores and outlets located along or near a stretch of U.S. Highway 321 between Lenoir and Hickory, NC, the area is a required stop for any serious shopper looking for top-of-the-line home furnishings at discount prices. Nearly all manufacturers including Bernhardt, Broyhill, Fairfield Chair, Hammary, Kincaid, and Thomasville can be found here, along with an abundance of smaller, perhaps lesser known companies that also sell top-quality furnishings. While furniture shopping is a year-round attraction for this area, special sales are offered both before and after the spring and fall furniture markets. Especially keen shoppers can sometimes find one-of-a-kind items or deeply discounted samples.
With such low prices, one would expect to give up convenience, but that is not the case here. Most furniture retailers offer shipping options to anywhere in the continental United States. Many also take custom orders, so you’re sure to find exactly what you need at a price that is likely to be substantially lower than you would expect to pay elsewhere.
Lenoir is a 20-minute drive northwest from Hickory, 90 minutes from Charlotte and five hours from the coast. Other metro areas within 100 miles include Asheville and Winston-Salem, NC, Greenville and Spartanburg, SC, and Johnson City, Kingsport and Bristol, TN. The “20 Miles of Furniture” is only a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Charlotte Douglas International Airport provides the area’s commercial airline service.
