Seeing the need for a furniture store with strong customer service, Ver Hage’s Furniture Mart was founded by brothers Alan and Wayne in 1974. The initial store was 4,800 square feet and Alan was the only full time employee serving as furniture buyer, salesman and delivery person.

Due to rapid growth and a need for more room, in 1976 the showroom was doubled to 9,600 square feet and Wayne joined in a full time capacity. Other full & part time staff were added through the years. After several expansions the current showroom is currently 15,500 square feet plus a warehouse facility of 5,200 square feet.
