Our new store at 3807 Mechanicsville Turnpike opened in June of 2018! We're excited about all the additional space and the opportunities if provides for us to expand our selection and better serve our customers! We're located at the corner of Mechanicsville Turnpike and Laburnum Avenue (next door to Hardees)!
As special notice about us, about COVID, and about furniture:
Central Furniture, as most other furniture retailers, is having a difficult time getting and selling inventory right now. COVID has forced many manufacturers to shut down. Some have reopened and some won’t reopen for a while.
With this in mind, our selection of goods for sale is a little limited.
Domestic upholstery producers are up and running again, but their two or three-month shut downs have caused huge problems for furniture stores. Some sofas (and recliners and sleepers) have been trickling in, but our total selection is running about 10% less than what it usually is. American bedroom and upholstery manufacturers get many of their parts from overseas. While domestic lumber may be used in many groups, hardware generally comes from across the ocean.
Mattress manufacturers are shipping again, but in many cases, they’re having to change fabrics to continue shipping. Most fabrics sold in the US today come from overseas. Fabric choices are extremely limited.
Most case goods (bedrooms, dining rooms, end tables and cocktail tables) are produced in Asia. Some factories in China and Malaysia are up-and-running again. Some aren’t. The same is true for factories in Vietnam and Thailand. In fact, almost all Asian countries are producing at about half their regular production. That problem, compounded by a terrible backup in orders, is leading to incredibly slow shipping and arrival times.
Add to that almost a year’s worth of backorders from retailers across the country, and you can see why the entire furniture industry is having problems right now.
To continue and make matter worse, once goods are produced overseas, they must then be shipped by ocean carriers into ports in California. Once they get through customs there, they must be transported from the west coast to the east coast. Our goods come in through a distribution network in North Carolina and all these things are now leading to excessive delays.
Where our store usually has more than thirty (30) different bedroom groups and another thirty living rooms on display (not to mention another 30 dinettes), right now we’re running a little low on some items. As of late February, we have about 25 models on display in each category. Inventory is again flowing somewhat regularly, but not enough that we can count on a full showroom display. Most reclining groups come from overseas, so selections in that category are limited right now.
These problems extend to all types of merchandise. Appliances, electronics, even lamps and rugs, all are dependent on overseas production in some way.
We apologize to all our customers. Some goods on our website are out of stock; we hope you’ll have patience with us and all other retailers as we attempt to work through this biggest disaster in the lifetime of our business.

Since 1991 we've been furnishing Richmond with Value!
We moved into our old showroom on Mechanicsville Turnpike in 2004 and quickly outgrew that building. We couldn't find a larger building available in our same neighborhood until 2018.
It all began in downtown Richmond when we opened in Furniture Row in 1991. More space became available to us in 2004 and we made the move!
We're a full service home furnishings retailer. We not only finance our own accounts, but we offer FREE DELIVERY and SET-UP for customers in our service area. We have a large service area, from Chester to Aylett and Charles City to Short Pump!
