Our History

Francis Furniture

A family business for over 80 years.

Beginning as far back as 1935, the Francis Furniture family has been in the retail furniture business. In 1946, Glen Francis and Marcel Goffena purchased the Sidney Furniture Store from Auglaize Outfitting. They called their business Francis and Goffena. As their families grew, they dissolved their partnership.

In 1960, Glen Francis, Robert Scofield, and Glen's son Ronald, built a new furniture store in Celina, Ohio and called it Francis & Scofield. Later the name was changed to Francis Furniture.

Washington St. ( US 127 “Downtown Van Wert” ) in May of 2005.

My family has shopped at Francis Furniture for YEARS. Every one we have worked with is professional and really knows their product. They will even come out to your house and help you figure out the best layout and combination of furniture. If you are looking for 'Value City' quality you will not find it here but everything is worth EVERY PENNY you pay for it and they will usually price match.
