Three retailers have joined the Furniture First buying group-Koerner Furniture, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Quality Furniture Co., Murfreesboro, Tenn.; and Sweat's Furniture, Brunswick, Ga.

Like most Furniture First members, the retailers are family-owned and operated, and have lengthy community histories.

Koerner Furniture is a full-line, family-owned retailer that has been in business since 1978.

Quality Furniture Co. is in its third generation of family ownership and was founded in 1969.

Sweat's Furniture was founded in 1960 and has expanded through several locations.

The addition of these stores brings the Furniture First Membership rolls to 206 stockholders, with 431 furniture stores in 47 states.

"Furniture First is a cooperative in every sense of the word," said Bill Hartman , president of Furniture First. "By coming together, our members enjoy advantages typically available only to major retail chains. The size of our group and our in-house resources allow us to do things that independents struggle with when they go it alone."

Furniture First will be present at the Las Vegas Market next week. Its showroom, B962, will feature merchandise in a variety of categories from their vendor partners, as well as exclusive private label mattresses and upholstery.
