828 International to return to High Point this fall
Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, August 26, 2010
Greenville, S.C. - After being absent for the past several years, area rug house 828 International Trading Co. is making a comeback to the High Point Market this fall.
John Shepherd, president, said the company will occupy a temporary space in the Suites at Market Square.
"Over the past few years we've increased our focus on furniture retailers as a significant channel of distribution," he explained. "With High Point Market being the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, it makes good strategic sense to realign ourselves with this market."
828 International's new space in High Point will be located in the new rug gallery on the top floor of the Suites at Market Square, in space 1-716. There, 828 will present its 2010 product introductions and displays as well display some of its existing machine-made and handmade collections.
828 has long occupied a permanent showroom in Atlanta's AmericasMart.
