General info

In 1946 Sam Olstein founded the White Furniture and Appliance Company. He sold a variety of items from furniture and mattresses, all the way to gas ranges, refrigerators and washing machines. Like most retail establishments, he had some good years and some not so good years, but the tradition he was building continued.

Jeffrey Olstein, Sam's son, came in to work on Saturdays at age 11. Learning the business from the bottom up, he began full time employment in 1971 after graduation from the Detroit Institute of Technology. When Jeffrey entered the business, a major change of direction began. White Furniture started the process of upgrading its merchandise from the original format of "Three Rooms of Furniture for $299".

In 1980 Sam retired & Jeff assumed full ownership and control of the company. At this time, the decision was made to raise the level of quality once again. The most important changes were in the products and their presentation. White Furniture no longer carried appliances and began associations with La-Z-Boy, Flexsteel, Stanley and many more. White Furniture now carries approximately 100 brands of furniture and accessories.

Scott Jordan joined White Furniture in 1985 at the age of 16 working after school and on weekends and like Jeff he started at the bottom. Scott has had every job possible in a furniture store from stock boy to delivery to service to manager. Jeff and Scott formed a succession plan many years ago to make sure that White Furniture would continue beyond Jeff's retirement. On December 31, 2012 Jeff officially retired.

When White Furniture opened on January 2, 2013 it was with Scott Jordan as it's new owner. White Furniture has a tradition of customer service that will continue. Mike Cassell, Carol Khoury, Michelle Baker-Phillips, Dayna Garrison, Scott Smith, Jeff Baker, Russell Hinson & Joshua Elkins worked with Jeff and will continue to work with Scott. It is the people at White Furniture that make it a success.

White Furniture embarks on a major overhaul of something almost every year. New carpet, new walls, fresh paint, new lights, and new room settings all help to improve presentation. New computer systems have made the company more up-to-date and efficient.

Constant changes to the custom design center and the video catalog system give ability show different fabrics on different frames and take the fear out of custom ordering. White Furniture is the leader in having furniture your way. We've come a long way since Sam started his "One Man Furniture Store", making deliveries in his stake pickup at the close of each business day.
