Hickory Craftsman Opens New Retail Location

HICKORY, NC — Stop by Hickory Furniture Mart on Saturday, April 22 from 9am-6pm for the grand opening celebration of Merican Rustic.

Merican Rustic is a local family-owned business which handcrafts American Made domestic and exotic live edge wood slab furniture. They specialize in custom ordering rustic wooden products such as dining room tables, conference room tables, cocktail tables, counter tops, fireplace mantels, mirrors, candle holders, cutting boards and any other customer requests no matter how large or small.

They have built a solid customer base and reputation online over the past two years since their inception.

Now, their first retail location inside Hickory Furniture Mart will allow customers to stop by and see all of their newest selections in person. Customers will also be able to speak with the craftsman directly about creating custom American Made products for their homes.

Owner and local craftsman, Jordan Powell will also have special one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces to showcase their diverse custom options during their opening day.

Merican Rustic was initially started by accident when Jordan created his first cedar bar top for a friend. The reaction and response was overwhelming, and requests to customize more orders from family members, friends and colleagues quickly started pouring in. Business exploded when Jordan decided to open orders to customers online.

Now their exquisite American Made products can be found in luxurious homes, restaurants, offices, hotels and city parks in 50 states and 5 different countries around the world.
