    America's Best Furniture Retailers

    “We joined Furniture First to take advantage of the extra discounts and rebates! However, the information available through networking and the exchange of ideas with fellow retailers is worth the cost of Membership alone – many of America’s best furniture retailers are Members of Furniture First and I’m glad we’re able to associate and learn from them!”

    Exceeded our expectations

    “We joined Furniture First with the intention of saving money via rebates and discounts, but it has also exceeded our expectations with streamlining our operations due mainly to networking with other dealers at our Symposiums.”

    The Marketplace is Changing

    “The very best we get out of the group is the relationships we’ve developed and the trust and the willingness to help each other. Also, the management of Furniture First is very good at stretching us and taking us out of our comfort zone. Even though our company has been there 67 years, they remind us that we need to shape up because the marketplace is changing.”

    Dean Swanson - Ernie's in Ceresco

    Increased Our Sales

    “Throughout the years, we have increased our sales and our bottom line as a result of outstanding buys, advertising ideas, rebates, circulars, tools such as our website and merchandising. We also feel very fortunate to have developed true friendships and terrific networking sources. The Membership and staff of Furniture First are made up of the finest people in the furniture industry and make us proud to be associated with this group.”
