Generations Furniture by Hudgins in downtown Cornelia, Georgia, is a third generation full service furniture store.


Forrest's grandfather Jewell Hudgins opened the first store in Toccoa, Georgia in 1939. In 1955 J. B. Hudgins,Jr (Forrest's Dad) came back to Toccoa to work with his dad.  J. B. graduated from Georgia Tech where he played football and was on the team when they won the National Championship in 1952. He then joined the U.S. Air Force and served in the Korean War and was stationed in Tripoli. He married Elaine Lewis(from Camilla,GA) and they lived in Tripoli until moving back to Toccoa. The whole Hudgins family grew up learning about people and furniture. The 4 boys all worked with their Dad and Grandfather from an early age.  They attended furniture markets, went to factories, delivered furniture and learned how to service the products sold. The tradition of service and value continues to the present at Generations Furniture by Hudgins.  Stop in today and see us at 254 North Main Street in downtown Cornelia, Georgia.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

The Hudgins Family has taken great pride in serving the people of Northeast Georgia since 1939. We are in the people business. It is our goal to make shopping an enjoyable experience.   We want you to feel like you are a guest in our home, and help meet your needs. Our homes should reflect our unique styles and taste. We enjoy helping you make your home a relaxing and comfortable haven. Our job is to find the best product for you based on your description, at the best value, best construction, best comfort, and best style. It is very confusing today to shop for most any product. Many consumers become disillusioned when they shop because there is so much focus on price and what you get free if you buy now and very little  knowledge of the benefits that product will bring to your life. We are in the furniture industry because we like people and we know furniture and mattresses. Our family has toured many manufacturing plants and we have learned how each company builds their product and why they are priced the way they are. The old saying is true "cheap furniture costs more." If we look for the cheapest price we will definitely find it and we learn that we get exactly what we pay for. We strive to use our knowledge to find the best comfort, style, and value, and the manufacturer who will stand behind their product so our customers will be confident they made a good decision. Your comfort and health is important to us, we are nicknamed "The Mattress Doctors" because we are highly trained on how to improve your health and well being through better sleep. We were trained by Simmons Mattress Co., and we understand how confusing it is to know what to look for in a new mattress. So we invite you in to let us help you sleep better tonight and find out how to improve your memory, improve your attitude, eliminate aches and soreness, live longer, and lose weight. We invite you to give us a chance to serve you. Thank you!
