Meet the Founders: Eddie & Carol Kennedy

Great Deals on Furniture

Great Deals On Furniture was started in November of 2005 by Eddie & Carol Kennedy. They have a combined 70+ years of experience in the local furniture industry. Eddie started working in his family’s business, General Freight Furniture, when he was a teenager. Eddie’s parents, Ralph & Martha Kennedy hired Carol to work in the business in 1989.

After a few years, Eddie & Carol got married and started their family as they continued working together in the furniture business. During that time, Eddie co-founded the Furniture 1st National Buying Group, which today consists of 518 furniture stores in 47 states, reporting over $2 Billion in sales. In 2005, they launched out and opened Great Deals On Furniture on Bobby Jones Expressway in Augusta and as they say, "the rest is history."

Great Deals On Furniture originated with the innovative idea of being open exclusively on weekends, introducing Augusta to a furniture store where customers could “See It, Buy It & Take It Home This Weekend!” Since its inception, the store has prioritized convenience and provided exceptional value on quality name brand furniture.
