High Point is The Furniture Capital of The World

October 1, 2018

In this episode of The Radio Vagabond, I house-sat for a month and visited the world’s largest furniture store where they host a large furniture market twice a year and the city’s population doubles when 70-80 000 people come to the city.

High Point, North Carolina is not a big city. It’s got a population of around 107,000 people, but twice a year the population almost doubles when they host High Point Market where 70,000 people in the furniture industry meet.

Even though the next High Point Market is only a few weeks away, the CEO of High Point Market, Tom Conley took the time to see me.

How did this happen? And why is the worlds biggest furniture store in this small city? Join me in this episode where I’m looking for answers to these questions and many more.
