FurnitureDealer.Net to Create "Hangout" Space in High Point

FurnitureDealer.NetBURNSVILLE, Minn.-FurnitureDealer.Net is set to create a permanent "Hangout" space in the heart of the High Point Market district with the purchase of an office building and surrounding property located at 311 S. Elm St. between Green Drive and East Russell Avenue.

According to Andy Bernstein, founder and chief executive of FurnitureDealer.Net, the 1,850-square-foot, solid-brick building situated on approximately half an acre includes a grass-covered backyard ideal for entertaining purposes and 50-plus parking spaces in a private, off-street parking lot close to the main market showroom buildings. The building is located just a block and a half from the Plaza Suites building and across the street from the Braxton Culler showroom.

Bernstein intends to use the property as FurnitureDealer.Net's High Point Market "Hangout" space, created exclusively for the firm's retail clients. The company unveiled a similar space, modeled after premium airport frequent flyer lounges, at the Las Vegas Market earlier this year.

Bernstein said renovations are well underway at the property, and the company is planning a grand opening during the upcoming High Point Market in October.

FurnitureDealer.Net will also continue exhibiting in the NAHFA Retailer Resource Center.
