Just how far does Quality Furniture of North Carolina go with its commitment to personalized service?
Co-owners Jerry Snipes and Kim Weber said their store continually works to exceed customers’ expectations by not only offering the best in brand-name furniture at low prices, but also placing a very personal touch on their business by providing services they say you may not find at other stores. Quality Furniture’s varied personalized services range from free local deliveries and pick-up of old furniture to taking measurements at a customer’s home and bringing catalogs to seniors and others who are interested in purchasing new furniture but may not be able to get out to the store.
“We treat customers like they’re family,” Weber said of Quality Furniture’s simple, yet compelling business philosophy.
The 429 Route 31 South store, which opened in January, features several famous brand names, including England, a division of La-Z-Boy, Riverside, Lancer and Mobel Inc. The store, open seven days a week, carries all types of furniture, including sofas, dining room sets, casual dining, bedroom, kitchen and mattresses. Furniture can be purchased directly from the store’s showroom or by catalog. The store includes a display of fabrics showing what various sofa sets look like in numerous colors and designs.
Snipes and Weber, who co-own another furniture store located at 480 Route 206 in Newton, said their stores provide a comfortable atmosphere for all visitors. “There’s no high pressure,” Weber noted. “When someone walks in, we let them browse at their own pace. We will spend as much time working with the customers as they want us to.”
When it comes to price and product type and style, Snipes said what you’re told is exactly what you’ll get. “We shoot it to you straight,” he said.
Snipes regularly drives to North Carolina, often referred to as the furniture capitol of the world, where he personally picks up top-line furniture for his New Jersey stores. As a result, he said the best furniture is selected, while overhead costs are kept to a minimum. “Product for product, others can’t compete with our prices,” he said.
Quality Furniture offers an additional 10 percent discount to law enforcement officers and an additional 10 percent discount to seniors each Wednesday.
Snipes, who has been in the furniture business for more than 25 years, previously owned the former Quality Furniture Store on Route 46 in White Township. Snipes said his business’s reputation for top quality service has resulted in many customers from the former White Township store now purchasing furniture from the Washington Township and Newton locations.
For more information, call the Washington Township store at (908) 223-7494 or the Newton store at (973) 383-5118.

MONROE – Clayton Marcus, the last of three furniture units put on the selling block this year by La-Z-Boy Inc., has been sold to Rowe Fine Furniture Inc.
The sale of the upholstered furniture subsidiary was announced yesterday by La-Z-Boy, one of the nation’s largest furniture makers, and Rowe. The purchase price wasn’t disclosed.
Clayton Marcus, a maker of medium to upper-priced upholstered furniture, didn’t fit into the long-term strategy in the operations of the $1.6 billion a year Monroe firm, Kurt Darrow, president and chief executive officer of La-Z-Boy, said in a statement.
The deal follows last week’s announcement of the sale of Pennsylvania House by La-Z-Boy to Universal Furniture, with no disclosed price. Plans to sell the two furniture units and Sam Moore, a manufacturer of upscale upholstered chairs, were made known in February by the company. Read more »

Crawford Furniture can now be called a â€˜â€˜Custom Comfort Centerâ€™â€™ as the Jamestown business has partnered with England, a La-Z-Boy company.
Founded in 1883, Crawford Furniture is a manufacturer of solid wood furniture. The company runs both a factory on Allen Street in the city and an outlet store on Fairmount Avenue in Lakewood. On Tuesday, representatives from England visited with Lakewood Store Manager Tracey Heeden.
â€˜â€˜Even though weâ€™ve been selling their upholstery for the last year, we just decided to partner with England and become a Custom Comfort Center,â€™â€™ Heeden said. â€˜â€˜We will be able to sell for a bit less because we will now be buying in quantity from the factory and there will be other benefits as far as shopping goes.â€™â€™ Read more »

Outdoor furniture once meant woven plastic folding chairs with hollow aluminum frames. Or wooden picnic tables. Or white stackable resin chairs.
These days, the trend is to extend a home’s living space outside with furniture fit for Cleopatra – or Hollywood’s elite. It’s the resort-spa-luxury look on the deck, patio or pool.
Richard Frinier talks about it in a column posted on the High Point International Home Furnishings Market Web site, www.highpoint market.org. He writes of what he calls “Resort-at-Home” trends, “bringing the essence of world travel to our own backyards.”
Whether it’s a double chaise with canopy from Restoration Hardware’s Antibes collection or a Plantation Siesta and Canopy sofa from Gloster, the new furniture is designed to make you forget about folding furniture and plastic Adirondack chairs stacked high at supermarkets. Read more »

Hooker Furniture Corporation today reported net sales of $77.3 million and net income of $4.3 million, or $0.33 per share, for the quarter ended April 29, 2007.
Due to a change in Hooker Furnitureâ€™s fiscal year, the Companyâ€™s 2008 fiscal year began January 29, 2007 and will end February 3, 2008. The Company will compare its operating results for the thirteen-week first quarter of fiscal year 2008 with the 2006 three-month second quarter that ended May 31, 2006 (the â€œ2006 quarterâ€).
First quarter 2008 net sales of $77.3 million decreased $13.4 million, or 14.8%, compared to the 2006 quarter net sales of $90.7 million. Based on actual shipping days in each period, average daily net sales declined 13.4% to $1.2 million per day during the 64 operating days in the 2008 first quarter compared to $1.4 million per day during the 65 operating days in the 2006 quarter.
2008 first quarter net income of $4.3 million decreased $1.5 million, or 26.5%, compared to the 2006 quarter net income of $5.8 million. Earnings per share of $0.33 decreased $0.16, or 32.7%, when compared to the 2006 quarter earnings per share of $0.49. Contributing to the decrease in earnings per share was a net increase of 1.2 million shares primarily resulting from the termination of the Companyâ€™s Employee Stock Ownership Plan in January 2007, partially offset by stock repurchased since February 2007.
