Village Furniture may be a new company, but we are comprised of folks who have been in the business for many years. Rick, Janet and Leigh have years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. So, other than in name, it is far from a new furniture store. Our goal is to provide affordable furniture, American made where possible. We also like to buy from companies offering choices in finish and fabric. Nothing like going shopping for a sofa only to be told that it's available only in Brown. We have many brands to choose from, like Best Home Furnishings, Ashley Furniture, American Furniture MFG, Rowe Furniture, Vaughan Bassett, Best Home Furnishing, New Classic, Clayton Marcus, and A-American. Our personalized service will help you make the right choice. We are located in the downtown village area of Kannapolis which, if you've never been here, is a beautiful collection of Williamsburg type shoppes and businesses. We are only two blocks from the North Carolina Research Campus.   Delivery is available in our trading area of Cabarrus, Iredell, Rowan, and Mecklenburg counties. You'll find a low pressure environment without commissioned salespeople following you around.

4949 Professional Park Dr, Ste 206 , Kannapolis, NC 28081

Welcome to Cabarrus Chiropractic! Our goal is to ensure a pleasant and healing experience for you. Dr. James Litaker diagnoses and treats patients with health problems of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Working one-on-one with each patient, Dr. Litaker develops a personalized game plan to treat each patient’s problem and improve their general health. Chiropractic medicine is based on the principle that spinal joint misalignments interfere with the nervous system and can result in lower resistance to disease and many different conditions of diminished health. But chiropractic health benefits are so much greater than the relief of back or neck pain. Chiropractic is whole-body health care with the vision to see the body as much more than the sum of its parts. For these reasons, Dr. Litaker gives each patient his undivided attention to ensure a complete and thorough background is taken. Working together to achieve optimum health, each plan focuses on natural, drugless, nonsurgical health treatments, relying on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities.  The chiropractic approach to health care is holistic, stressing the patient’s overall well-being. It recognizes that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity. Dr. Litaker focuses on maintaining patients’ optimal health naturally so that the body is better able to resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Cabarrus Chiropractic offers a complimentry first consultation.

Federal Financial Services, Inc. is a diversified finance company specializing in financing used cars, trucks, and SUV's for used car dealers throughout the southeast. With over forty years experience the management is dedicated to offering a sub-prime financing plan to the dealers in this area that will hep you close the sale. We ask you to give us a try. While we will not be able to finance everyone who comes on your lot; we will make every effort to help those with sub-par credit or those who have no credit at all. You are in the business of selling used vehicles and we are in the business of financing used vehicles; with this in mind we hope our financing plan(s) will fit your needs. Included in this packet is the main financing plan we offer our dealers. Non-Recourse - with this plan the Dealer has no obligation once the deal is cashed.

When you submit or call in a credit application the "in house" manager is the one who makes the decision, not the "home office" who is miles away. Funding can be received by: *In person at Lenders place of business. *US First Class Mail / Overnight at Dealers expense. *Wire Transfer / ACH Ask us about Decision Lender. This new technology has helped us link with Dealer Track and Route One.
