If you lived in Cherryville during the 40's, 50's and 60's you might remember Rainwater Furniture.
Max and Margaret Rainwater opened their first furniture store in 1948. Max was in charge of sales and buying, Margaret was the company bookkeeper and they had a good life there.
They raised four children and kept the business until the early 60's when Max decided it was time to retire. Now retirement can be great for some, but not for Max.
By 1977 he decided to open a second furniture store out in Boger City. This time the name was changed to Furniture Mattress Sales.
It was a good place for a furniture store they thought until the new 321 highway was built and the store had to move. So Max got to work and built a new building not far away on Dave Warlick Drive.
He and Margaret worked there until their daughter Julie Dixon and her husband Mark bought the place in January of 1991. In May of that same year Max passed away. Margaret decided to step away from the business and Julie, Mark, and Bobby (Julie’s brother) took on a new career. Later, nephew Joseph Rainwater joined the team.
