Nebraska Furniture Mart Texas ~Early Shopping Event for MyDFWMommy Readers~ Sign Up ASAP

Posted by My Dallas Mommy on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 at 5:00 pm

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 2.43.43 PMWoohooo! MyDFWMommy readers can sign up for a special early shopping event (dates are yet TBA) at Nebraska Furniture Mart. I would suggest you sign up asap as I have a feeling the spots will fill up quickly! When filling out the form, please put that MyDFWMommy is the blog that referred you!

Email updates will include:

  • Nebraska Furniture Mart history
  • News about the new store
  • Brands and products we carry
  • Services we provide
  • In-store Grand Opening events
  • And much more!

I got a sneak peek of Nebraska Furniture Mart last week, so read on to learn more!  I hope you’ll join me in this awesome early shopping event.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 8.35.49 AMHere is a little trivia for you.

What has 560,000 square feet of retail showroom
Enough hardwood to cover the Dallas Cowboys Stadium 7 times
Enough dining tables to seat the family of each UT freshman
The store and warehouse together are 31 football fields long!

If you answered the new Nebraska Furniture Mart coming to The Colony, Texas, you are spot on!

Now the most elusive question right now is… WHEN will it open? Our answer, “this spring”. Heavy sigh. Executives haven’t nailed down a true Grand Opening date, but you can bet your bottom dollar I will be there for the grand opening. Why? Because after getting a sneak peek (#nfmsneakpeek) tour, I can’t wait to do some shopping!  They have some amazing pieces with some knockout prices!
Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 8.39.09 AMWhen I lived in Kansas City, I fell in love with this store (there are also stores in Omaha & Des Moines). It was huge in Kansas City, and as we always do “everything bigger in Texas”, the Nebraska Furniture Mart Texas is MASSIVE at 560,000 square feet. The store will bring a lot of life to The Colony area as it sits on 100 acres of the 433 acre development known as Grandscape, where hotels, restaurants and more shopping will soon erect.

What I love most is this…customers will get the lowest prices in town in store and online. NFM deploys digital tags that nightly check over 39,000 skus against 18 of the leading retailers (including Amazon) and changes the prices to ensure they are offering the lowest price possible.

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 8.02.42 AM

The motto of the owner Rose Blumkin was “sell cheap and tell the truth”.  Mrs. B worked until the ripe age of 103!  WOW!

The store was established by her 1937 in the basement of a pawnshop. In 1983 Warren Buffett purchased 80% of Nebraska Furniture Mart.

 

So what will Nebraska Furniture Mart offer?

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 8.41.03 AMFlooring: Rugs, carpet, wood and hard surface

Appliances: Large and small appliances plus a Kitchen Gallery to build your dream kitchen

Electronics: 150 TV’s, 100+ headphones, cellphones, laptops, cameras, fitness equipment, Bose Store, Home Theater + tons more

Furniture: 170 upholstery groups, 127 accent chairs, 165 recliners, 60 mattress sets, 110 bedrooms, 228 occasion tables, lighting gallery + more

Plus you can pick out product in the Nebraska Furniture Mart store, then drive to a 128-stall pickup lane at warehouse to get it or get it delivered directly to your home.

AND here is my BEST tip after getting this great sneak peek!  They have a clearance section that I would hustle to when the store opens and check out.  You will find some high end rugs + more and some amazing prices.

Stay tuned as will fill you in on more details as we get closer to the Grand Opening!
