Ever buy one of their rockers? Has it held up well? I want a comfy rocker and their rockers are always SO comfy to plop into!

I know several people who have their rockers. They all have held up great.

I have never been to a Cracker Barrel. I donít think there is one in our entire state!

I have never bought a rocker, but your title caught my attention. When traveling, I can never resist a Cracker Barrel gift shop! I am NOT a shopper generally and don't want to eat there, I just enjoy the gift shop.

I was actually given one for my classroom. It held up just fine foe at least ten years before I retired and gave it to someone. Wide seat, good rock, no wobbles.

I never had a Cracker Barrel rocking chair but I did buy the teacher clothes - jumpers, sweatshirts, knit vests, etc - back in the 90s.

I love shopping at Cracker Barrel... for clothes!!! I love when students give me Cracker Barrel gift cards because I can choose to eat or shop.

DDís grandparents bought her a child-size rocking chair from Cracker Barrel for her first birthday.
She used it a lot as a child but did not abuse it. It is still in like new condition and she will soon be 23.

I should have asked here! I almost bought two for my front porch two years ago and hesitated after reading negative reviews. Good to know so many people here have had good experiences with them.

I purchased two at Walmart and they have held up well! I'm not sure if they are in stock now but I haven't regretted my purchase (about 5 years ago!).

I love everything about Cracker Barrel. I've always wanted a white rocker.

I bought my quilted comforter there. I love it! There are so many things I would love to buy there.
