REASON 8: Dependability and Experience You Can Count On
We have been successfully serving our community since 1890; that is over 120 years of proven service!
In the late 1800s, a man named George Abernathy began his venture selling Singer sewing machines from farm to farm around his hometown of Bear Paw, North Carolina. Soon after in the year 1890, he opened a commissary in a nearby town of Farner, TN seeing the need in the area. Years later, George moved his business to Ducktown, TN and partnered with Mr. Carl Center forming Abernathy and Center Mercantile Business. They sold a variety of merchandise ranging from nails and hardware to furniture and coffins. After George's death Luther Abernathy, his 18 year old son, took over his interest in the business trying to follow in his father's footsteps. As the business continued to thrive, Luther opened a secondary store in, what is known today as, Copperhill, TN. During Luther's time in Copperhill, he created two business slogans: "Coffins, Caskets, and Dynamite" and "You marry the Girl, We'll Furnish the Home". The second slogan, "You marry the Girl, We'll Furnish the Home", is most well known to our community and still stands today at Abernathy's Complete Home Furnishings.
Later in 1925, after years of success and expansion, an arsonist burned his Copperhill facility and the Great Depression soon followed in the 1930s. After the depression, Luther rebuilt on the land where our business currently stands today and his decision was made to continue business only selling furniture and hardware. Luther passed away in 1949 leaving his wife, Elizabeth, and children to run the business. In the 1950s the store was partially torn down in right of way for the new highway and in 1973, after remodeling once again, an arsonist burned the store once again. People in the community helped the Abernathy family stop the fire before destroying their business a second time. The building and records were partially saved due to the faithful neighbors around the community; the building was eventually used as a storage warehouse due to their efforts. After this event Elizabeth decided to retire leaving her son, Carl Edd, the sole proprietor of the business. Later that same year, Carl Edd built a much larger, flame retardant facility in the same location using the old building as a warehouse for inventory.
Today, this facility still stands at our current location between Blue Ridge, Georgia and McCaysville, Georgia. Carl Edd Abernathy eventually retired in 1984 and on July 1, 1984, a local man by the name of Wayne Queen, who was administrating the Handy Korner Convenience Store in Epworth, bought the business. Since that date in 1984, Wayne and his wife, Diane, have made many additions to the store that was previously erected by Mr. Carl Edd Abernathy. After selling the Handy Korner in 1989, he began making additions that include a second floor showroom to the main building, a new three-story warehouse to serve as inventory storage and showroom space, and a two story office area with showroom space connecting the two buildings together. Since 1984, Wayne and Diane have expanded Abernathy's Complete Home Furnishings to over 20,000 square feet of area to accommodate for the rapidly growing area around them. In May 2006, Wayne and Diane turned the business over to their children, Melody, Jason, and Dustin. We currently specialize in retail furniture, home appliances, televisions, and accessories. Our ultimate goal is to treat our customers as if they are part of our own family. We will continue to do our best to give the largest selection, the best deals, and the best service to our valued customers. Customer satisfaction has been and will always be our number one priority here at Abernathy's Complete Home Furnishings. We encourage you to come by our showroom and see why Abernathy's has served our community for over 120 years.
