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!
When 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.
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?
Appliances: Large and small appliances plus a Kitchen Gallery to build your dream kitchen
