Friday, April 21, 2017, I (Steve Walker) attended the Grand Opening of the brand new Christopher Guy Showroom located right smack dab in the middle of downtown High Point, NC, between the IHFC building (a truly massive structure) and the Showtime building on South Hamilton Street. It’s a beautiful building, inside and out, and is the first newly built showroom space in High Point in more than 10 years.
I was there on behalf of the University, at Chancellor Woodson’s request. I brought along the lovely and talented Portia for good measure; we like selfies.
Governor Roy Cooper was there for the ribbon cutting and made a nice talk in support of Christopher Guy and the furniture industry. Christopher Guy Harrison, the company founder, can be seen behind Governor Cooper, the second man from the right, below. It was a good event, well attended.
Truly beautiful furniture, but I don’t think it’s in the price range for state employees…even the Governor!
