About Us

Bert Maxwell Furniture buildingThe Maxwell family has been in the furniture business for over 100 years. Bert Maxwell Furniture Company opened for business on July 4th, 1972. The store was founded by Bert Maxwell III under the tutelage of his father, Bert Maxwell Jr., who had retired from the family furniture chain of 36 stores called Maxwell Home Furnishings.

The original founder, Bert Maxwell Sr., started business in 1904. He sold furniture on credit, collecting 50 cents per week, and delivered it with a horse and wagon.

The fourth generation joined the business in 2003 when Bert Maxwell IV began full time work. The long term commitment to the furniture business by the Maxwell family allows customers to be confident that they are buying quality furniture from an experienced and knowledgeable staff.

Meet our Staff:

Bert Maxwell III
As owner of Bert Maxwell Furniture since July of 1972, I have seen enormous changes in the furniture business. My grandfather started in the furniture business in 1904, over 100 years ago and instilled in his family the values of operating a business.  Quality, selection, service and price were and still are the core values of the business, but the field of play is very different today with so many finance schemes and poor value product on the market. Our experience allows you to navigate the furniture maze with confidence that you will be getting a quality product to fit your needs at a fair price.
