Haggard’s Fine Furniture
So much has changed in 105 years. But at Haggard’s Fine Furniture, owner Earle Haggard still carries on the mission laid out by his grandfather, who founded the store in 1916—providing customers with quality, handcrafted furniture that lasts a lifetime.
Custom Crafted Quality
Haggard’s specializes in American-made lines that feature meticulous attention to detail and quality. Every line is personally vetted by Earle, who visits the factories to ensure they meet his standards of excellence.
The store offers many options for customization, far beyond picking a stain color. Depending on the piece, you can select from a wide variety of woods, finishes, leg shapes, table edges, and fabrics. “We encourage customers to take home samples to see how the woods and fabrics look in their own homes,” says advertising manager Jean Murphy. If you need a non-standard height or width, Haggard’s can special order to your specifications.
Thriving in Challenging Times
As the quality of imported furniture declined in recent decades, Haggard’s responded by focusing on American brands. Many of the store’s top lines are Amish made, handcrafted with care and precision. But old-fashioned workmanship doesn’t mean sacrificing modern improvements. “Furniture is more customer friendly now,” says Jean. These pieces are built to withstand kids, dogs, dirt, and daily use. Many items include up-to-date comfort features, like recliners with emergency battery packs for power outages. Every order includes free delivery in the metro area.
Business is booming despite pandemic-related shipping delays and shortages. It’s taking longer for orders to arrive. But the knowledgeable, low-pressure sales team works with each customer to ensure a perfect fit that’s worth the wait. “We’re dedicated to making sure people get what they want,” says Jean. “We don’t promise anything we can’t deliver.”
