Residents of the Canton area now have a new option to purchase furniture since Billy’s Furniture has arrived in Canton.
TOWNSHIP – Residents of the Canton area now have a new option to purchase furniture since Billy’s Furniture has arrived in Canton.
The company opened at the beginning of August in the old Heilig-Meyers building.
“It’s great here,” said owner Billy McCurley.
They sell new furniture. The company does not offer any credit check financing.
McCurley noted that business was booming with its delivery employees working 16 hours a day to keep up with demand.
McCurley has been in the furniture sales business for 24 years. He opened his first store in 1995.
The Canton Region Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony at the store on Friday evening.
His family had also sold furniture but used objects. McCurley said it’s hard to find quality second-hand items, so he’s wanted to switch to new furniture for some time.
When his father retired, McCurley switched to new furniture.
Billy’s Furniture has three other locations: Jacksonville (head office), Beardstown and Carlinville. McCurley noted that he was also looking to expand into other cities.
Billy’s Furniture is located at 1611 E. Chestnut St. Their hours of operation are 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday. The store can be contacted at 998-1545.
