Furniture First is a purchasing cooperative made up of retail furniture dealers. Our members are locally-owned businesses across the United States. We work together to leverage our purchasing power with leading furniture manufacturers. Because we work together, we can bring great values in high-quality home furnishings to our communities.
Our retailers live in the communities they serve and they have a great understanding of their customer’s needs and values. Our average member store has been in business for over 40 years and is family-owned and operated. Our members pride themselves on being good citizens and doing business in an ethical manner.
Furniture First was founded in 1994 by a small group of independent furniture retailers who joined together to better compete with national furniture chains. Through collective buying power and the sharing of best business practices, Furniture First members have thrived in increasingly competitive markets. Today our 218 members represent over 450 retail locations nationwide and collectively generate over two billion dollars in retail volume.
