HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Mississippi company has been recognized as the #1 Large Independent Furniture Retailer in the country by national trade magazine Home Furnishings Business.

Miskelly Furniture was named the top home furnishing retailer among large independent companies. The publication judged retailers based on market share, reputation, social media footprint and retail expansion.

“It goes without saying this is a huge honor for Miskelly Furniture and the State of Mississippi,” said company co-founder Oscar Miskelly. “We have always believed in treating our customers fairly and giving back to the community. It’s nice to be recognized for the job we do.”

Oscar started the furniture chain 40 years ago with his brothers, Tommy and Chip.

“Awards are nice but the day to day is still the focus. The company will continue business as usual, putting customers first and maintaining a strong community partnership,” said Chip Miskelly.

Miskelly opened its seventh, and second largest, store in Hattiesburg last year at the Westover Crossing Shopping Center. According to the company, the Hub City location is off to a great start for 2019.
