About Shannon Neal, High Point Furniture Shopping Tour’s Founder
With over one hundred showrooms and storefronts in High Point, it’s impossible to see each of them in a single day. This is why Shannon Neal and his associates help customers find the right destinations, to find the perfect pieces. By streamlining the process, High Point visitors can experience the area, gain access to the best furnishings, save time and money by working with High Point Furniture Shopping Tours.
“Because I grew up in North Carolina and have lived here, promoting furniture all my adult life, this is not a job for me, but a passion. Introducing clients to the greatest selection and best values in furniture and home furnishings is something I love to do.”
– Shannon Neal
Shannon Neal has over 25 years of experience in the furniture and home furnishings industry and founded High Point Furniture Shopping Tours in 2004. As a former international Trade Specialist with the U.S. Department of Commerce, Neal has traveled the world promoting North Carolina and its products.
His work establishing agent, distributor, importer, and retailer contacts took him to U.S. embassies and consulates in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Japan, and more. Additionally, Neal served as the Director of the NC Furniture Export Office. During his service, he continued to travel the world and promote the high-end furniture and home furnishings that North Carolina is now known for.
Happily married and reaching retirement, he looked around his home that was filled with unique antiques and furnishings. He decided sharing his passion for High Point and everything it offers was how he wanted to spend the next several decades.
“I wanted to help others discover the treasures I knew were right here in the Piedmont Triad area — from any type of home furnishing to all the great restaurants, places to stay, and the friendly people and quality of life this area offers.”
