A Place Where Home Furnishings and Great Stories Are Found
If an average person were to hear the term "Used Furniture," not the most glamorous of professions would come to mind.

Ask any one of Fred's employees and they'll say that they cherish the opportunity to work there and that every day is a different adventure in furniture resale.
Pre-owned furniture, collectibles and just about anything else arrives daily at Fred's stores and people come from hundreds of miles away to purchase beautiful or hard-to-find items at low liquidation prices.
But customers quickly come to appreciate that not everything at Fred's store is all about money. It's the personal touch that distinguishes their business from the ordinary. Everyday, Fred's belief in good karma and in treating every person with respect and a smile is apparent. Fred's legacy of generosity has even extended to Hurricane Katrina victims when 400 rooms of furniture were donated to those truly in need.
Having fled from Lebanon during the first major Middle-East conflict in the 1970's, Fred experienced more crisis in his early adult life than many people will ever experience. Having to give up a celebrated role on the Lebanese Olympic team, he has gone from Professional basketball player, to butcher, finally to end up in the role that will shine on as his legacy, a purveyor of used furniture that will please anyone from the most economical of urban dwellers to the cream of the crop in celebrities.
Counting famous musicians, politicians, and the movers and shakers of Michigan economics among his friends, Fred is more regularly seen by customers as a friendly and charismatic guy putting in 14-hour days in the Detroit "working man" tradition.

From the simplest of headboards to the most beautiful furniture from million dollar homes, Fred's Furniture truly is Unique.
