You might wonder how Woodland Furniture, the largest furniture store in Mississippi and the second largest furniture store in the South, became such a store while it is located so far from any major town. Well... the highschool closed in the little town of Woodland in 1986. The Chickasaw County officials sold the property in order to provide additional facilities in the Houston Separate School District for the Woodland's students 8 miles away. The Bullards, a local family with long ties to the town and old school, purchased the property and this was the beginning of Woodland Furniture. By doing this, the "Little Town That Can" dedicated it's self to help provide jobs for employees in the furniture industry and to promote locally made home furnishings. The town and its citizens of less than 200 were and are focused on not letting their little town die like so many others in the area had done. Thanks to "Word of Mouth" advertising, and a policy of Low Cost For Everybody, the store grew quickly. From it's fledgling beinning in 1986, it has grown to become Mississippi's Largest Furniture store and the second largest in the South boasting almost a half million square feet!
The informal-down home, no frills, no sales pressure, friendly atmosphere that customers deserve (and expect) is as much a part of our logo as the "Old Oak Tree" that once graced the school playground at our beloved school from 1906-1986! We welcome you to make the drive and come see what the talk is all about!
Woodland Furniture is centrally located between Tuscaloosa, AL, Memphis, TN and Jackson, MS!
