Badcock Home Furniture was founded in 1904 by English immigrant Henry Badcock. Henry’s son Wogan took over operations and had a difficult time selling furniture during the depression. This gave him the idea of consignment, where other stores would carry the furniture and make a small profit for selling it.
Today, Badcock Home Furniture has more than 320 stores in 8 states, some of which are dealer stores, others are company owned. The company was recognized by then governor of Florida, Jeb Bush as a centennial retailer.
Furniture Today magazine listed the company as one of the top 25 furniture retailers in 2005. The company is well known for its generous in-house financing and same day delivery.
