President
Chen Qing, a Commerce graduate from Saint Mary’s University, founded Hometown Furniture & Mattress after selling two movie tickets he won online, turned a good profit, and realized that he had a found a niche market in Halifax: the Chinese and international student population. He then began selling his possessions and flipping second-hand mattresses and old appliances. Since mattresses were his best seller, Chen contacted manufacturers to secure supplier agreements. Now, seven years later he has deals with more than 10 national mattress and furniture suppliers, 16 employees, and 3 full size stores in Eastern Canada.
