McQueen's Furniture - a family affair

Furniture runs in the family! This is certainly true for the owners of this family-owned and operated store. With over 135 years of combined experience in the furniture business, the owners of McQueen's Furniture are clearly veterans.

Lovers of black-and-white will probably find this 
dresser quite effective. They might also like the
