Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
Unless otherwise indicated by the context, we use the terms “Havertys," "we,"
"our," or "us" when referring to the consolidated operations of Haverty
Furniture Companies, Inc.
Havertys is a specialty retailer of residential furniture and accessories. Our
founder, J.J. Haverty began the business in 1885 in Atlanta, Georgia with one
store and made deliveries using horse-drawn wagons. The Company grew to 18
stores and accessed additional capital for growth through its initial public
offering in October 1929.
Havertys has grown to over 100 stores in 16 states in the Southern and Midwest
regions. All of our retail locations are operated using the Havertys name and we
do not franchise our stores. Our customers are generally college educated women
in middle to upper-middle income households. Our brand recognition is very high
in the markets we serve and consumer surveys indicate Havertys is associated
with a high level of quality, fashion, value and service. ... More ...
