NMTC Brings Hundreds of Jobs to Rural North Carolina
Rooms To Go, the nation’s leading independent furniture company, cut the ribbon for its huge new Super Center on Saturday, October 17th, in Dunn, NC. The newly built facility is approximately 1.45 million square feet on 120 acres and houses a state of the art Rooms To Go showroom, a Rooms To Go Kids/Teens showroom, a Rooms To Go Outlet Center and a huge distribution center housing tens of thousands of pieces of furniture.
The Dunn Super Center and Distribution Center will create approximately 400 new jobs for area residents. In addition to serving consumers in the new Dunn stores, the state of the art distribution center is over 1.3 million square feet under roof and will service Rooms To Go stores and customers throughout the Carolinas and the I-95 corridor. Rooms To Go has several market leading stores in the area including showrooms in Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington and Fayetteville.
The rural project received $30 million in NMTC financing from CAHEC New Markets, SunTrust, and CityScape.
