A9 Furniture Celebrates
32 Years in Tallahassee

 

A-9 Furniture opened their doors way back in 1979. Marvin Pearce and Mickey Bridges opened A-9 Furniture, Inc. with the goal being to provide the best possible prices on quality furniture. 32 years later they are still going strong are one of the largest volume independent furniture retailer in Tallahassee.
"We saw the need for quality furniture at affordable prices here in Tallahassee," Says Marvin. "The trend seemed to be fancy showrooms and we felt like people were more interested in saving money and getting the best quality their money could buy!"
That is why they decided to locate on the west side of town in what many would consider a warehouse. "We pass the savings on to the customer," Mickey exclaims "that's what people want!"
So after over 30 years of selling top quality furniture at warehouse prices, A9 Furniture is going strong. The business has grown to the point that they were forced to lease additional space to accommodate the inventory needed to keep up with retail sales.
In 2009 A9 Furniture went global with the launch of their website (A9Furnitur.net). "That was quite a step for two old-schoolers like us!" Said Marvin. "We knew we needed a website but we weren't sure how to go about it. Obviously bargain shopping is a huge part of the Tallahassee economy and the Internet is a natural extension of our marketing efforts. Customers can now see our ads in publications like the Thrifty Nickel (American Classifieds) and see special offers on our website."
Even though the shaky economy over the last 2 to 3 years has affected everyone’s sales to some degree, we've held our own. When money gets tight people start looking for ways to stretch their budgets and shopping with us is a great way to do that.
Don't think you have to sacrifice when it comes to a knowledgeable sales staff. Marvin and Mickey hire and retain only those individuals with a passion for the business. Their staff will help their customers in any way possible. Their low-pressure approach to furniture sales is a refreshing departure from other national retail furniture chains.
