Gardner-White Furniture was founded in 1912 by Eugene White and John Gardner. The company was purchased by the current company president’s great grandfather who refused to change the name in order to save money on signs and company forms.
The company had only one store until 1974. Gardner-White Furniture now has 10 stores throughout the state of Michigan as well as a large warehouse in Auburn Hills. The company offers household furniture, sofas, mattresses, and consumer electronics such as televisions and microwave ovens.
Gardner-White Furniture is one of the largest partners of Best Buy and recently opened two locations inside Best Buy stores in Bloomfield Hills and Novi, Michigan. As of 2013, the company began offering same day delivery service within a limited area.
