The Mathis Brothers tradition of a family-run furniture store began with Don and Bud Mathis, as they helped in their parents’ furniture store in the late 1940′s. The brothers soon began buying and refurbishing refrigerators and selling them to local appliance stores, eventually striking out on their own to open Mathis Brothers Furniture in 1960.
When Bud left to pursue other opportunities, Don continued the family tradition by bringing his sons, Bill and Larry, into the business. The brothers still joke about doing everything during their early years at Mathis Brothers, from filling the Coke machines to picking up rocks in the parking lot. In 1988, knowing the business would be in good, capable hands, Don sold the store to his sons.
Following the family tradition, Rit Mathis, a member of the third generation, was brought into the company at age 13, to learn the business from the ground up. He now manages our Ontario, California store, is our face on television, and is involved in the day-to-day management of the Mathis operation.
