On Thursday, our class got the chance to tour Timberlake Furniture with owners Tyson and Morgan Meador. In 1982, Ron and Alma Timberlake, Morgan’s grandparents, opened the furniture store in 1 pole barn. Today, it has now grown into 9 buildings totaling 240,000 square feet! Over the last 20 years Tyson was a seed sales manager and Morgan a teacher. But an opportunity arose for them to purchase the business from Ron and Alma and they decided to take on the new experience in January 2020. And then….Covid hit! They consider themselves happy they survived. But during this slower period they had a opportunity to make some changes. Switching all records from paper to a computer system, moving inventory to keep up with the trends and also building a team of employees that are beneficial to the business were some of them. Some advice they gave the class was to be on time, be honest and admit your mistakes. They pride themselves in being affordable and truthful with their customers. And finally they said “If you have a dream, don’t give up. Anything is possible!”
