The Group

Each group consists of several progressive retail owners who meet three times a year to share their best ideas, financial results, and strategic plans. Only another store owner can appreciate the challenges of the furniture industry today. Furniture First facilitates the process by coordinating the meeting, providing an industry perspective, and processing individual company data to ensure comparable information.

The group belongs to the members and is run by its members with an elected executive committee.
