Family furniture store built to last, celebrates 40 years of business



The west end of Radford has been keeping a secret – Southern Furniture – family owned and operated for 40 years. Karen McQueen is second-generation family and now owns and operates the huge showroom and warehouse on a daily basis. McQueen’s dad, H.C. Branscom started the business in 1974 as a showroom/warehouse operation. She recently changed the business to a full service shopping experience. She felt many of the local people had no idea of the great selection of name brand furniture and accessories available to them at fantastic prices. The building had a warehouse look then, not the beautiful look she is striving for today.

Large windows in front and a complete makeover inside make Southern Furniture a beautiful and exciting place to shop. “We carry reclining sofas, loveseats, chairs, lift recliners, power reclining furniture and camouflage is available,” she said when asked what the most popular items people were shopping for were. “The top name brands available are Catnapper, Best home Furnishings, Ashley, and England.”

McQueen recently attended the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C. “Southern Furniture tries to keep up with all the latest styles and colors, to bring our customers furniture they will be proud to own and show off in their homes to family and friends,” she said.

If you haven’t visited Southern Furniture in a while, they invite you to come and see all the new changes that have been made to accommodate their customers. Southern Furniture is located at 2110 West Main Street. They offer no interest financing and delivery is available. For more information, call them at 639-3046.

    I am glad that Soutthern Furniture is doing well. I have purchased quite a bit of furniture there in the past that has lasted a long time. Karen has always been great to work with and provided exceptional service.
