Furniture: Ikea has great styles for their furniture at great prices. All the furniture comes in rectangular boxes that you take home and follow the instructions to assemble. The furniture has lasted us for many years, through multiple moves. It's not the sturdiest or longest lasting furniture around, but it is durable enough and the prices are amazing. Food: The swedish meatballs are amazing and worth the trip alone. The frozen yogurt is the best vanilla froyo i've tasted anywhere and the cinnamon rolls are a family favorite as well. Try the ligonberry sauce if you get the meatballs. Atmosphere: The upper level of the store has all of the furniture laid out into rooms and 'living spaces' of various sizes. They show you how you could live in 200sq ft and some other small size areas. Most of the furniture comes in 1+ of 3-4 shades, so it's easy to mix and match furniture. There is also a great kids area where kids can play on some of the toys they sell. If you want to shop without your kids, they do have a babysitting area that looks like fun for the kids if they are tall enough and potty trained. Downstairs has a bunch of non-furniture stuff like great curtains, rugs, kitchen and bathroom stuff, dishes and glasses, etc etc. Then there is the self-service warehouse where you pick up your furniture and check-out. Don't miss the $3 umbrellas (they are huge) in the check-out line!

I looked for a television armoire literally for years that had pocket doors and ample space for dvd's, music etc. I went into the Dump very cautious after reading reviews and was not shy about informing associates of that fact. And yes, I READ EVERYTHING! I walked by a beautiful Philippe Langdon piece afraid to look at the sticker as I knew this was at least a $5,000-$6,000 piece. After saying a quick prayer (lol) I checked the price and it was on clearance. I couldn't believe it. Not a scratch on it! After checking around the ATL area and speaking with high end furniture stores here, the cheapest that I found the piece was $4800. When I told the owner the DUMP had it for $2100, he said " Ma'am , don't walk, don't run, fly back to that store!" Needless to say, I took his advice and the GORGEOUS piece that took 3 huge men and my hubby to carry in, sits in my living area now. EVERYONE compliments the piece (90100-62 English and French Walnut Entertainment Center on Philippe Langdon site) and attempt to buy the almost 8 ft beauty off my hands which will never happen.:) Therefore, I guess it depends on who you deal with and what you are looking for. My experience was seamless thank God!
Great place to shop for quality furniture! After reading a few reviews-we were a little relunctant to drive the 90 miles to the DUMP. However, we had an excellent experience. Plenty of sales staff available to direct you to your desired purchase, not pushy, just helpful. After trying out 100 leather recliners - we found an excellent buy on a rocker recliner - I had to ask the sales person if the price was correct! When he said it was, we bought 2 ! Loading was a 15" process - friendly loading staff and made sure we were ready to go. We will be back shopping for a leather couch later in the year - they also had excellent selection and pricing on these item.
