About Us

Karobway Furniture & Floor Coverings was started in 1989 as a family business with Katherine, Robert, and Wayne Smith as the principals. The first location was in LaCrosse, Virginia, and we were only open on the weekends. The kids, Robert and Katherine, ran the business on the weekends, with Wayne picking up new merchandise during the week. The business grew rapidly and was moved to South Hill, Virginia, into the old Carver Furniture Store. At that time, Karobway consolidated with Wilson Floor Shop, enlarging our offerings to a full range of home furnishing products. Soon after the move to South Hill, Jo Ann Smith joined our company and Katherine left to get married and settled in Tennessee.

At first, there was hardly enough furniture to fill one floor of the Carver building. But as the business began to grow, it became clear that the building would not be large enough for us to serve our customers properly. In 1994, the business moved to the current location on 1423 North Mecklenburg Avenue, South Hill, Virginia. Initially, two 12,000 square feet buildings were constructed on the site. Sears decided to bring their new format store to the South Hill area and located it in the front half of the first building. Three years later in 1997, a third 12,000 square feet building was constructed. Then in 2007, we added an additonal 9,600 square feet of showroom to accomodate our customer needs.

Karobway Furniture & Floor Coverings was started with a simple goal of giving our area customers name brand furniture and floor coverings at the guaranteed lowest prices. Today, Karobway Furniture has 45,600 square feet of showroom space with the largest selection in Southside Virginia.

If you haven't figured out how we came up with the name, Karobway comes from the "KA" in Katherine, the "ROB" in Robert, and the "WAY" in Wayne. And, we treat our customers how we got our name, like Family!
