Furniture choices expand in Goodlettsville

The Furniture Store, independently owned by John and Veronica Testerman, recently celebrated a grand opening in the Music City Shopping Center, 900 Conference Dr. in Goodlettsville.

The 13,000-square-foot store features a variety of lifestyle-oriented furniture and accent pieces, including a large selection of children's furniture.

"We've tried to position ourselves so we can offer higher-end goods than big-box chain stores, but at prices competitive with what they're doing," said John Testerman.

Testerman, who has been in the furniture business all his adult life, most recently owned a furniture manufacturing business in Riverside County, Calif., for 12 years before moving to Nashville a year and a half ago. Before that, Testerman owned a chain of seven retail stores in Southern California.

The Furniture Store is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 851-1213 for more information.
