We've been taking our followers on adventures around D-FW -- meeting celebrities, rocking out at concerts and eating delicious food. Follow guidelive on Snapchat and you won't miss any of the fun.
But let's back up. Here's how you should start your trip to this giant place:
Take a snack break instead. (Tip: There's a Subway inside the store, but best bet might be to bring snacks from home. Try not to get snacks on new furniture.)
What you need to know
- Nebraska Furniture Mart is great if you need to outfit a whole home or if you're searching for one item. But shoppers in the latter category might be most successful, as spending more than two or three hours inside this behemoth store can get painful.
- Buying might be as overwhelming as shopping. For convenience, the friendly salespeople can make transactions on the spot using a tablet. The concept of this is cool, but it's a little odd to lounge on your soon-to-be couch while you rattle off your address and hand over your credit card. At one point, a stranger sat next to me on the couch, listening to the salesperson tell me all about their delivery service. I wanted more structure (and fewer eaves-dropping strangers) surrounding a large purchase, so buying at the traditional customer service area is a better option for shoppers like me.
- In addition to selling furniture, appliances, televisions and tons of smaller housewares, Nebraska Furniture Mart does carpet, tile and granite. Their team will even help you plan a room and assign crews to demolish rooms, then redo them with new flooring and appliances. NFM doesn't sell cabinets, bathtubs or toilets, but they will install them.
Feeling overwhelmed? You betcha.
