Nunley's - Nunley's - Elizabethton, Tennessee

Elizabethton, Tennessee

The "Nunley's" name also belongs to a number of family-owned furniture stores located in Elizabethton, Tennessee. The "Nunley's" furniture stores have served the Tri-Cities Tennessee region for a half century. "Nunley's" is known for providing the region with "big city" shopping in small town America.

An oversized wing chair measuring approximately 5 feet by 10 feet tall has become a minor landmark for when store owners distribute candy at Halloween from the large chair.

One of the furniture stores is located in the historical Kress building in downtown Elizabethton. The architecture of this building can be credited to the same Sibbert that manufactured the "Nunley's" carousel horses mentioned above. This location is called "Nunley's Furniture Plaza".

Another "Nunley's" furniture store is located in a converted car dealership building. The plate glass windows make a perfect display for drive-by window shoppers. The building was originally built for a gas station and grocery store of the 1940s called "Southland Service". The gas station had a cafe and a "Pan Am" sign was erected on the premises. Today, this location is known as "Nunley's Uptown".

Yet, another "Nunley's" furniture store is located in an old "chair factory building". A chair factory was in operation in this location on Hwy 19E in Elizabethton during the 1950s. This store is called "Nunley's at the Chair Factory".

An additional location in downtown Elizabethton is called "Furniture Plaza". This location, at 512 West East E Street, was an A&P grocery store in the mid 1900s.
