Made in the USA

Every customer and admirer of Flat River Furniture is greatly appreciated. You prove that Americans still appreciate quality products that are made in their own backyards. The current trends of going green, re-purposing old items and supporting small businesses is fantastic. When your make conscious choices about the products you buy it speaks volumes. Not only do you express your individuality by buying handmade items, but you support your neighbors and keep money in your local economy.

Did you know, according to studies, for every  $100 spent at a chain store only $12 is circulated back into the local economy? When spent at a local business, that same $100 gives $45 back.

There are other benefits to buying local as well.

Your reduce your environmental footprint. 
Many people are environmentally conscious and want quality products that do more good than harm. Local purchases limit pollution created from transportation. In the case of our products, it also means you might get something that has been transformed from something old into something new again. One more item is being kept out of the landfill.

Your invest in your community.
Local business owners are more likely to give back to the community. Here at Flat River Furniture we support the Coventry West Greenwich Lions, a wonderful organization.

Your receive great customer service.
Small business owners know their customers are the key component in their success. They work harder to create great products and provide good customer service. One-on-one interactions make the buying process an experience.  

Support your family, friends, and neighbors. Buy local. Buy small business.
