Furniture World News on

The fourth of eight planned Thomasville Home Furnishings stores in South Florida opened in Wellington in Palm Beach County on Saturday, May 1, 2004, and the fifth is scheduled to open around the beginning of June in West Boca Raton. The stores are owned and operated by Hendricks Furniture Group, a North Carolina-based furniture retailer. Hendricks also operates the Thomasville Home Furnishings stores in Fort Lauderdale, Jensen Beach and Miami, and other stores are planned to open in Florida in West Palm Beach, East Boca and Destin by the end of the year. “We’re pleased with our customers’ responses to our first three stores in South Florida,” said Larry Hendricks, president. “Thomasville offers so many different styles of furniture – there’s something for everyone. Our goal is always to keep the displays in the stores fresh and exciting so that customers can envision how the furniture might look in their own homes.” Added Tom Tilley, CEO of Thomasville Furniture, “South Florida is a vibrant and vital market for us, and we are delighted with the Hendricks Furniture Group’s growth in opening new stores. The pace of their expansion within South Florida shows how pleased customers are to have our merchandise available in convenient locations.” When the West Boca store opens, it will be the 150th Thomasville Home Furnishings store nationwide. The Wellington and West Boca stores will present all of Thomasville’s major collections, including two collections that are extremely popular in South Florida: Bogart, known for handsome silhouettes and sophisticated styling, inspired by Hollywood’s most romantic era; and Hemingway, influenced by the exotic locations where the author lived. Dawn Jamison, general manager for the new South Florida stores, points out that both the Wellington and West Boca Raton stores will feature a diverse array of furniture collections displayed in fully accessorized lifestyle room settings designed especially for the local market. In addition, the South Florida Thomasville stores offer complimentary design assistance to customers. Customers are encouraged to visit and discuss their decorating needs with Thomasville’s talented design staff. “Our designers will tailor a plan for each individual style and budget,” Jamison said. Thomasville Furniture is a subsidiary of Furniture Brands International (NYSE:FBN), the nation’s leading residential furniture manufacturer.
