VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) – The deal is done as United Furniture now owns Lane Furniture.
On Friday, December 8, the sale was finalized.
United Furniture President Larry George says it will be business as usual on Monday, December 11 at the Lane’s manufacturing facility in Belden and High Point, North Carolina.
