• Davis’ Furniture closing ends chapter on three downtown businesses

    The closing of Davis’ Furniture in Liberty ends the chapter on three old downtown businesses — Phillips Furniture Store, Floyd’s TV & Appliances and Kennedy’s Supply.
    The store is expected to close the first week of February, said owner Ronnie Davis.
    “Downtown business is not like it used to be,” he said.
    The closing of the store’s doors also means the end of an era; the store’s origins go back to the late 1800s.
