Anderson's Warehouse Furniture started in 1970 as a warehouse for all kinds of items. My father, Bill Anderson, would search the country for anything he could buy and resell. One day he came across a company in Fort Smith, Arkansas known as Riverside-Furniture.
He bought a semi load of swivel rockers put them in the warehouse, got on the radio and advertised them at $5 over what he paid for them, selling out in about 10 days. From that point on, he concentrated on furniture. That's why the name is Anderson's Warehouse Furniture, not Anderson's Furniture Warehouse.
