Fulfillment of its promise is in industries such as furniture, which can measure success in 60% of furniture sold in the United States connected to the area. Success on a global scale can be measured in Hickory Furniture Mart’s attracting visitors from Asia, the Middle East, and Europe and drawing 500,000 visits annually.
