Promises Delivered

Record #:
Despite not making the final bid as site for Amazon’s second US headquarters, the city of Hickory can claim fulfillment of its economic promise. 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.
