Maynard's Joins Furniture FirstJanuary 7, 2013
Based in New Belton, S.C., the family-owned retailer has a 65-year history in its market.
The addition of Maynard's to the Furniture First roster takes the organization's membership to 195 stockholders with 416 furniture stores in 47 states.
"Furniture First offers a competitive advantage to independents in a difficult economy," said Bill Hartman, president of the buying group. "Our programs ad to their bottom line with rebates, discounts and operational efficiencies. But the other benefits we offer, like our exclusive merchandise and private labels, also help them improve their margins and stand out from the competition in their local markets."
