How long have you been in business?

We have been in businesses since 1966.

Please describe your business.

We are a family-owned furniture business located in Downtown Beloit offering a full range of home furnishings including furniture, appliances, home decor, flooring, and window treatments.

What will people get from your business that they won't get anywhere else?

The largest furniture showroom in north-central Kansas with over 10,000 square feet of retail space, free delivery within a 60 mile radius of Beloit, and unparalleled personalized customer service. Our appliance department sells the General Electric line of appliances exclusive to the area and provides exceptional service by trained servicemen on all major appliances in the north-central Kansas area.

What are your biggest challenges as a business owner?

Right now our biggest challenge is product supply issues which have extended special order products out as much, and sometimes more, than 6 months. Also, the trend to purchase furniture and appliances on-line from on-line businesses.

What are the biggest rewards?

Building, or strengthening current relationships, with customers in addition to providing them quality products and services in their home town area.

Why belong to the Chamber? In your opinion, why is the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce important to our community?

The Chamber facilitates the business to business relationships within our community so that businesses can support each other. That support includes being familiar with what each business offers their customers, so they may promote each other when customers are looking for products and services in the community. The Chamber membership directory is also helpful for new residents in the area. The Chamber has been instrumental in helping businesses throughout the pandemic in getting information out and researching financial help for businesses. The Chamber Chat and other promotions have been great marketing tools, also.
