There's no better place to find absolutely everything. Low prices, great staff and it is an economic development project of apedf.org. I love this place.

Powerful!

One of a kind experience. A must visit, must donate, must volunteer, must get involved, must shop, must take social responsibility type of business. Powerful!

This Is My #1 Choice

This is my #1 choice of where to buy furniture (even if I don't "need" it.) The selection is great and the prices are phenomenal and the people are outstanding.

The People Are Great

I have bought many furniture items from Uhuru. A group of friends and I visits the store almost every Friday afternoon before going to dinner. The people are great, helpful, funny. It's always a pleasure whether we buy something or not.
