Furniture First announced that four retailers were added to the roster of members when the board of directors approved them in May and June. The new members include Furniture Connection in Clarksville, TN, Gladhill Furniture in Middletown, MD, Houston’s Yuma Furniture in Yuma, AZ, and Rana Furniture in Doral, FL.
Furniture Connection was established in October 1999 in Oak Grove, Kentucky, and they moved to their current location in Clarksville, Tennessee a year later. The main store is multi branded and focuses on in-stock merchandise available for same day/next day delivery from their Distribution Center. The operation now includes a Furnish 123, Ashley Homestore and an Ashley Homestore Outlet.
Gladhill Furniture was founded in 1915 as a part-time catalog sales business offering custom-built furniture, extending their product offerings from their previous funerary focus. As the furniture business grew over the years, it became the primary focus of the business. In 1998 Jim Nicholson bought Gladhill Furniture after working for another retailer in the market for a decade. Nicholson currently serves as president of the retailer.
“While each member takes a slightly different approach to their business, they understand the need to operate efficiently and maximize their profitability” said Andrew Kauffman, CEO of Furniture First. “That’s something we can help them with. Rebates are a key element, but when combined with some of our services, like advanced analytics and performance groups, the value of membership grows exponentially.” Andrew added further.
