About

Established in 1936 in Mocksville, Daniel Furniture is Davie County’s first and longest operating furniture and appliance store. Armand Daniel opened the company selling the first electric appliances in the county after the R.E.A. was started and the electrical lines erected. In 1946, after WWII was over and his service ended Johnson Marklin moved from the shipyards in Baltimore, Maryland back to Mocksville. Having been a former employee of Mr. Daniel, he decided to purchase the business and operate it along with his wife, Loyce, who was also employed by the Davie County Board of Education.

Their son, Johnny, joined the business in 1963. Showroom floor space was added along with a new warehouse to better serve the community with more selection and quick delivery. “Service after the sale” became the company’s motto. Davie County residents have come to rely on the service and dependability that go along with a purchase from Daniel Furniture.

Will Marklin joined the company in 2002 having owned and operated his own store in Boonville, NC. He is the third generation of ownership and plans to continue the same tradition of service and quality set by his predecessors. Daniel furniture carries several lines made in America and many made right in North Carolina such as: Greene Brothers, Johnson Benchworks, Cochrane and Troutman Chair.
