A Brief History

For six generations, the Perry family has lived and labored on the property the store now calls home. Through that time there's been much change and growth. Originally, the store was the family chicken barn; complete with a grain elevator. Our front counter used to be the horse stable, and there are even gouges in the old timbers where the horses would chew the wood while indoors.

The property looks much different now than it did then, but there's still that lingering spirit of hard work and dedication here.

NEW BUSINESS OPENS - Perry's Furniture and Appliances, located on Rt. 3 in Belfast, was officially opened Saturday morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony presided over by Mayor Stetson Hills. With Hills in the above photo are proprietors Douglas Perry, Dotty Perry and Robert Perry. The store features a large show-room displaying a wide variety of well-known brands of furniture and appliances. Doug & Dotty Perry founded Perry's Furniture and Appliances in 1978. At the time, we carried many major brands, including Flexsteel (a brand we still carry to this day).

Though we no longer carry any appliances, the store's size and scope has grown. What was once approximately 8,000 square feet has expanded to cover over 15,000, housing the greatest brands and featuring the latest trends.

When Doug & Dotty retired in [year], their daughter, Kimberly, took the reigns and has been leading the business to even greater heights. She has expanded our list of services to include room design and home staging. In 2014 we rebranded the company and became Perry's Home Furnishings & Design.

However, throughout these many changes there remains one thing that's steadfast. Over the years, the Perrys have "adopted" an extended family of dedicated and talented folks. We all strive to cultivate what Doug & Dotty started in the late '70s; a unique and family-oriented furniture buying experience.

For nearly four decades, Perry's Home Furnishings & Design have been doing things a little differently. Come see what we're doing, and learn how our expertise can help you love your home.
