I had such a wonderful experience at Furnitureland South working with Melissa Hollida that your store is now my official go-to for all my home needs. Thank you, Melissa! MJ

Melissa Hollida did an excellent job assisting me with my sofa purchase! I highly recommend using her. Thank you for all of your help, Melissa! Shelly H.

Wow. Our experience at Furnitureland South was awesome. It is the place to be when you are looking for furniture. The best part was working with Melissa Hollida and Tim O'Brien. What a great team! We were able to furnish a 6000 sqft. house in 5 days due to their hard work and efficiency. This is coming from a person who cannot make fast decisions. I owe this to them. Before our trip we provided them with plans and a list of what we are looking for and they were very ready when we got there. Melissa communicated with us before the trip and was with us every single day from 8:30 to 5:30. Thank you Melissa and Tim. Now we wait for the delivery date to be scheduled! The Halaoui's

My husband and I worked with Melissa Hollida to purchase furniture for our entire home and really can't say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly.
Furnishing an entire home can be overwhelming and challenging, but working with Melissa made it painless. She did so much pre-work prior to our visit that once we arrived she guided us to the style and designs that were exactly what we were looking for to furnish our home. We highly recommend Melissa Hollida and have already recommended Melissa and FLS to all of our friends as well! Thank you for making our experience truly exceptional, Melissa. Janine B.

Our experience with Melissa Hollida at Furnitureland South was amazing! We were grateful to meet Melissa who was friendly, extremely responsive, super helpful, and always one step ahead of the process.
The entire purchasing process of our new living room furniture was seamless and stress free, which is incredible since it would have been easy to be quickly overwhelmed by the amount of selection. While we have bought furniture from other retailers prior, this was our first experience with Furnitureland South, and it was far superior to all of our prior transactions. Thank you for a wonderful experience, Melissa! Wayne W.
