About Elmore Furniture Company

Elmore Furniture Company was founded in 1966 in Dunn, North Carolina. Our founder, Mr. Abe Elmore, goes back in furniture a lot longer - all the way back to 1955! Working first for other Dunn furniture companies, Abe bought out the store owners and started the company. His mission then is the same as our mission now, that is, to be "hometown people serving hometown folks". Our company goal can be experienced at any of our Elmore Furniture locations.

Fifty Years of Home Town Business, as of 2005

Some men like cars. Some men like clothes. Abe Elmore likes furniture.

To prove it, he’s been in that business for 50 years now, since the very day after his Wake Forest College (now University) graduation, which was May 31, 1955.

1955 was a happening year elsewhere as well. For a little perspective, these things also took place that year: Bill Haley and The Comets sang “Rock Around The Clock.” Disneyland opened in California. James Dean died. And the TV show “The Honeymooners” debuted.

The secret to Mr. Elmore’s occupational longevity?

“You’ve got to like what you do,” he said matter-of-factly. “And I’ve always enjoyed the furniture business.”

Already the husband of the former Jackie Campbell, also a Dunn native, and the father of one, Mr. Elmore took his brand-new business administration degree into the world of springs and upholstery through his friend Jimmy Suggs, who had opened his own furniture store just a few months earlier on West Broad Street in Dunn, near what is now the Jordan Tew & Associates building.
