Frequently Asked Questions

SEE POLICIES DELIVERY GUIDELINE

Yes. Green Front delivers your finds to homes in most of Virginia and North Carolina. We also ship rugs anywhere in the United States via UPS. Of course, you are always welcome to take your purchase with you on the day of purchase. We will gladly wrap and load these items for you.
With the exclusion of shipments to North Carolina, our out of state deliveries are subcontracted through independent shippers. We use white glove delivery services. Fees are based on total weight of items purchased at roughly $1-2.50 per pound, depending on how far away your shipping your purchase.
Purchases for in-stock items are typically delivered in 2-3 weeks. This can vary depending on the driver’s schedule and route. For special (customized) orders, turnaround time will depend on the company. Generally custom casegoods (like cabinets and tables) take 4-6 weeks and upholstery (sofas and the like) takes 10-16 weeks. Please be aware that these times are estimates. Delivery dates on special order and customized pieces can not be guaranteed and are at the discretion of the manufacturer.
Yes, even items on separate tickets will be processed together in the office. Luckily you will only be charged for delivery once if delivered in Virginia or North Carolina. If you pay for delivery once, then that covers all items for the purchase. If your order contains in-stock items (in our Distribution Center or from our showroom floor) and a special order (something that must be manufactured at a factory) you can get the in-stock items sooner, but you will still have to pay a “split ship”once the special order piece is ready for delivery.
Yes! Many of our items are sold directly off the showroom floor, though we have extras at our distribution center. Unless you are having something custom ordered, a “special order,” your purchases can leave when you do. However, if you’re planning to buy anything particularly large, you’ll want to bring a truck or U-Haul. Make sure to have a helpful friend or two on hand once you get home to help with the unloading process.
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see all the latest happenings. Sign up for our email and receive updates from our adventures afield and incoming inventory. And, if Farmville is just too far of a drive, be sure to visit the Green Front District Exchange for a curated sampling of our direct imported rugs and small furniture items.
New inventory arrives daily, so our selection is always changing. We receive shipping containers filled with rugs, truck loads of furniture direct from the factory and rooms of floor samples bought after major industry shows. Because many of our items are sold direct from the floor, what you see at Green Front one day could very well be gone the next.
We carry over 180 furniture manufacturers and each of them has something special to offer. To help you find what you’re looking for we’ve divided them by price point, style, furniture type and location at Green Front. We also carry rugs imported from around the world. Our Field Guide (available in store) and Interactive Map (available on our website) can help you find manufacturers based on your taste or budget.
We do not keep a live inventory online. We maintain an actively updated list of our manufacturers and where they are located at Green Front which you can explore on our Interactive Map. Our blog, Facebook and Instagram are also great ways to see new items as they arrive on the floor. But, move quickly, even featured items are not guaranteed to stay in stock. A sampling of direct imports and rugs are available for sale online at The District Exchange. But, if you want the full ‘Green Front Experience’ be sure to make the trip to our Farmville location.
Our furniture is almost always dramatically less than the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), sometimes by as much as 60%. Everyday is a sale. We are opportunists, constantly searching for special buys with manufacturers. We buy full containers of discontinued lines. We buy direct from small rug companies in India. And we even buy “showroom samples” (pieces used as display items at trade shows and other retail locations) to sell direct to you. This ensures our prices are always low. However, if you’re really itching for a deal, be sure to visit Building 12, AKA “The Boneyard”, for furniture, and Building 7 for our most deeply-discounted rugs. Occasionally manufacturers may offer markdowns on their particular lines but otherwise, Green Front does not run specials. However, April through July are great times to check out all the showroom samples following Spring Market in High Point, NC. The same is true for December through March, following the Fall Market. Floor samples are abundant and offer the best possible pricing.
You can find a curated selection of direct imports and rugs at The District Exchange. This is only a small sampling of the vast inventory housed at our Farmville location. If you see a manufacturer or piece you like on our site, be sure to use the “Request More Information” button to reach out to one of our sales associates. They will be happy to work with you via email or phone to find what you are looking for.

Our warehouses get pretty hot in the middle of August. And unfortunately most of these buildings get pretty cold in January as well. Buildings 7, 8, 9 and 10 were originally air-curing tobacco facilities. The windows were left open to allow the tobacco leaves hanging from the ceiling to cure. Needless to say, insulation was low on the list of the builder’s priorities. Please dress accordingly. Refer to our pre-trip checklist to make sure you are good to go.
One of the biggest keys to a successful Green Front experience is time, and you’ll want to allow plenty of it.

Please refer to our lodging page for more information on your options. It also helps to have an idea of the items and styles you're looking for. Use our interactive online map to create your own unique itinerary beforehand.
Size definitely does matter when it comes to furniture shopping so be sure to bring measurements with you, including room and floor sizes. Some folks find it helpful to bring a full blueprint of their homes. Fabric swatches, wall color, current flooring samples and samples of other fabrics in your home are all extremely helpful, especially if you are planning to do any custom ordering. A tape measure also comes in handy for many of our visitors. (Don’t worry. If you forget a tape measure, we have plenty you can use.) If you bring pictures of the items or styles you are looking for, our sales associates can point you in the right direction. Dress comfortably and be prepared for A LOT of walking and stair climbing. Visit Explore Green Front for a full list.
Our three tobacco warehouses do not have central air or heat, so prepare for hot temps in the summer and some winter chilliness. Make sure to consult the expected forecast for the day(s) you’ll be visiting, as Virginia weather is notoriously moody, particularly in the spring and fall months. We also recommend comfy footgear because you will be doing a lot of walking. Bring your exploring spirit and be prepared to find amazing things. Visit Explore Green Front for more details.
Our interactive online map and Field Guide provide all the information you’ll need to maximize your Green Front experience. Think of it as your personal handbook to exploring our world.

Any time is a good time… except Sundays at our Farmville location. We’re closed on that day and if you make the drive, you’ll be disappointed. You can see a list of our hours here.

Congratulations on your find. You’re probably looking around for one of our sales associates. Due to our massive size, locating help can be tricky. If you have difficulty locating someone to help you, go to the nearest phone and press “0”. If you are having trouble locating someone, make sure to take a picture to help you find the item later. Once you locate a sales associate, they will place a sold tag on your piece (or tag it at our distribution center) and begin a ticket for you, the first step of the checkout process.
No, unfortunately this does not mean the item is free. We get in so much inventory and turn our product so fast, pieces sometimes make it onto the floor without tags. Other times, tags are removed from pieces and not replaced. Our sales associate are happy to find the price for you.

There are several sales associate in each building who can help you make a purchase. Each sales associate is the most knowledgeable about the manufacturers in their building. They can best answer questions about pieces from that manufacturer and help with orders.
Sometimes it can be difficult to find a sales associate in our huge buildings. You can identify sales associates by their Green Front name tags. If they are not at their desk or the point of sale (you can locate these on your Field Guide), they are most likely floating on the floor or helping other customers. Remember that out of sight does not mean they are not on site. If you really can’t locate anyone, use any Green Front phone and push zero to be connected the office. Our floor and rug crew are also wearing Green Front t-shirts. They will be happy to help you locate a sales associate as well.
We accept Visa, Discover, Mastercard, Amex, personal checks and cash. Green Front does NOT finance, however, you can make a deposit to hold an item. We require that the balance be paid by cash or check in full before delivery.

Many of Green Front’s manufacturers offer complete customization of their pieces, from upholstery, to wood, to finish. These items are built from scratch and customized to your exact specifications. Your sales associate will be able to use their extensive knowledge to guide you through what options are available with a specific manufacturer or piece. Just remember, because these pieces are made from scratch, they take considerably longer to create and deliver.
Yes, everything on our floor is for sale, Unless of course someone beats you to it and there is already a sold ticket on the item. There is always a chance that a piece marked with a “sold” ticket is available in the Distribution Center. However many showroom samples or vintage pieces are one of a kind.
For exceptionally large orders we are happy to discuss pricing options. Just speak to your sales associate.
