Real Deals on Furniture was founded in 2001 in Twin Falls, Idaho, by current owners Nate and Carie Whittaker. The company operates franchised furniture outlet stores.
The company began renting an upstairs room in an old creamery, offering discounts on new furniture, as well as an eclectic mix of used, antique, and handmade items. In July of 2017, the company purchased a 118 year old building know as The Cotton Mill in Jefferson, Georgia. This “new” location will house dozens of mini-stores, similar to a mall setting, with franchises selling their home goods and furniture items.
With the purchase of the new building, the company is changing their name to The Cotton Mill. In addition to the Jefferson store, the company has 69 franchised locations in 19 states and 4 in Canada. Headquarters are located in Jefferson, Georgia.
