North Kingstown RI 02852 is all about being in existence for 110 years. Isn’t that incredible for a home town furniture store!  So many local and home town businesses can not sustain themselves against the corporate giants they are competing against…but McKay’s Furniture does it quite successfully…now how do they do it?


Well they carry quality furniture, deliver great


Customer service beyond expectations to their customers and have a fiercely loyal customer base (per one of the owners Keith said) that keep coming back for more!  Oh, of course they have a lot of what people want and being on the cutting edge design wise certainly adds to attracting clientele.


McKay’s Furniture has been owned and operated by the same family since inception in 1900- now the founding McKay now has his three grandchildren (Kerry, Scott & Keith) at the helm of the store.  So there is that home town ownership thing going on here too.  They also have another store, McKay’s Front Porch, which is located at 751 Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown, RI which houses all kinds of summer furniture (or outdoor living furniture as they call it) for customers too.

Well I came in for the advertised  ‘dutch auction’ a couple of weeks ago, since I had never experienced one, and had my mind set on finding a small love seat to replace one that just was beyond salvaging.  I found it here at a great price and also found a great salesperson, Mikhaela Barbera, too.  Efficient, personable and knowledgeable is what I want when I come into a store and she had it all going for her.

I made an appointment to come back and do this post &

video on McKay’s Furniture with the owners. So Mikhaela  suggested that she would re-stage some of the display rooms for me since the Dutch auction cleared them out of a lot of accessories and furniture.


I focused on one part of the store in the video – their coastal rooms but they have rooms of desks, chairs, dining room sets, rugs and more…it is worth seeing this 110 years of being in North Kingstown RI. Put it on your list of stops if you are looking for furniture or home accessories…it is a short putt out of waterfront Wickford Village too.
