About Batesville Furniture
It was in 1973 that Paul Bowlin, of Pocahontas, opened his furniture store in Batesville. It opened under the name Bowlin Furniture, was then changed under new ownership in 1991 to Batesville Furniture. The location was north of the White River Bridge next to the present Con-Agra plant in Batesville. In 1994, Charles and Robin Covington purchased the business and added TV's and Appliances to the assortment of home furnishings. Later, other products were added including Hot Tubs, Vacuum Cleaners, Grills, and Pool Tables. The Present Building, located just south of the White River Bridge, was built in 1998.
In 1996, Charles joined with other stores a buying conglomerate called Nationwide Marketing Group. The group now has over 3500 stores nationwide and over 14 billion dollars worth of buying power. This allows Batesville Furniture to pass savings on to their customers. Charles is also Chairman of the Board and Past President of the Arkansas Home Furnishings Association.
