Hi! My name is Dickie Stafford and I am the warehouse manager here at Bowen Town & Country.
I have been here at Town & Country for over thirty years. I started out as a delivery guy right after college, and have been here ever since. Over the years, I have seen the furniture industry change.
It has gone from big dining room suites and complete bedroom suites to dinette sets and just a mattress set and night stands. That has a lot to do with the housing designs. No more formal dining rooms and complete walk-in closets.
I get to see everything that is ordered from Town & Country. All the stock orders and all the special orders come into the warehouse. It is really neat to see all the different choices people make when ordering furniture.
Thanks and hope to see you soon!

My name is Casey Sylvia and I have been delivering furniture for Bowen Town & Country for 14 years now. Best part of doing deliveries is that you are always going to different place’s and not stuck in just one place. Over the past 14 years I’ve developed some good relationships with some of our customers.
When working in customers homes I like to make sure that I do my job to the best of my ability so I don’t damage their furniture or things in their homes. I think the Bowen Town & Country delivery crew has been doing a pretty good job over the years by listening to our customer’s say how they prefer us to deliver their furniture in their homes. So if we show up at your door you know things will get done right!

BreeAnn developed a love for color and fabrics at a young age, working with her mom on various sewing projects, but it wasn’t until after her first year of college that she decided to pursue a degree in Interior Design.  While studying at Randolph, she completed her internship with Trotter and Webb Interior Design, with a focus on model home setup and design.  After earning her degree in 2006, she began her career as a design consultant for Ethan Allen.  Over the years, she has worked as a designer for various firms, specializing in residential interior design, remodeling, market showroom setup/design, and even staging for the real estate market. She has been the past Public Relations Chairman for the local Triad Chapter of AIDP (Association of Interior Design Professionals) and a contributing writer on design topics for the Southeast Lifestyle newspaper.  In 2014, she had the privilege of working with the U.S. Ambassador to Nicaragua on furnishing her home here in North Carolina.
BreeAnn is an avid DIY-er and when she is not designing or staging other people’s homes, you can find her shopping antique fairs and thrift stores in search of her next DIY project for her own home. Although, she loves being crafty and creative, her favorite pastime is relaxing at home with her husband, Joseph, and their two dogs, Jackson and Dixie.
