Richard Barentine is the executive director of the Furniture Factories' Marketing Association of the South. The Southern Furniture Market is held April and October and is the largest single event held in North Carolina. His job is to let people know about the market, what it is, and what it means, not only to the state, but to the rest of the country as well.
The High Point Market is the world’s largest home furnishing show bringing in 5.4 billion dollars in economic impact to the state. Over 75, 000 people will attend this year’s show and more than 2, 000 vendors will sell their goods. The influence of cheaper furniture from China, online shopping, competition from other cities, and the effects of House Bill 2 are having negative effects on the market. Despite problems, the show still goes on and provides a unique experience for market attendees.
