Robert Beckinger remembers working at his grandfather’s furniture store when he was just a schoolboy. Later, he worked for his father after he took over the store after the death of his grandfather.
When his father retired in 1975, Beckinger decided to open his own furniture store. HIs first building had only 8,000 square feet total, including the warehouse.
Today, Beck’s Furniture has 4 different companies, with 3 furniture locations around California. Each furniture store has a minimum of 200 thousand square feet of showroom space and $8 million in inventory for same-day delivery.
The coronavirus pandemic has made things difficult but Beck’s has managed to survive, even after tropical storm Dorian ripped the roof off of Beck’s furniture location in March 2020, in Montague.
Beck’s Furniture maintains a corporate office in Rancho Cordova, California.
