The Shops at Carolina Furniture of Williamsburg represents more than 400 manufacturers, and store president Joe Steele III said customers know that staff can navigate those brands for them.
"They expect us to curate and edit for them," he said.
Opened in 1976 by Joe Steele II and wife Judy, the company remains a Williamsburg mainstay, with a reputation reaching beyond the local area. With eight shops at one location on 5425 Richmond Road, there's plenty to browse, and on Dec. 16, the company opened the doors to an expanded Carolina Carpets building.
Hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Friday; 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday; and 12-5 p.m., Sunday. For more information, call 757-565-3000 or visit carolina-furniture.com.
