Our History

King Appliance and Furniture was established in May 1963 by four veterans of the appliance industry. Among them were; Fred L. King, Theodore Woods, Gerald Oswald, and Ernest L Lammers. 
 
All 4 had previously worked in the appliance industry and had served honorably in World War II. Ernie Lammers, Gerald Oswald and Ted Woods had worked before the war at City Tire and Electric in Boonville selling floor model console radios, tires, car radios and after market heaters for older cars. Later, as radios and heaters became standard equipment on vehicles, they began marketing appliances and furniture. 
 
During the time that the first three were working in Boonville Fred King, who had grown up on a farm in the area of Boynton north of Milan, was working on the railroad. 
 
During the war, all manufacturing was shut down and converted to the war effort. For this reason appliance and furniture stores across the country mostly closed during the war. Afterwards when factories began producing peacetime goods again. Fred went to work for Crist Maytag in Kirksville and later a Maytag dealership in LaPlata. At Beets Appliance in Kirksville Fred was instrumental in marketing the latest inventions of the day: wringer washers, gas and electric stoves, and refrigerators with extra storage from "shelves in the door". Other cutting edge products introduced in our stores included: black and white televisions, automatic washers, electric and gas dryers, dishwashers, and later even color televisions.



It was at this time that the owners began the important job of raising families. In the early 1960's, Fred’s boss Oral Beets passed away unexpectedly. It was at this time that a territory representative from Philco Corporation introduced the 4 men and suggested that they work together to keep the store open in Kirksville. It was agreed that they stay in the same building.
 
It was located at 112 W. Harrison, Kirksville, Mo. Among the earliest employees were Leonard Beatty and Frank Broseghini. In 1977 the store moved to its present location in the old P.N. Hirsh building at 116. N. Franklin.
 
During the summer of that year one of the owner's sons came to work at the store part time while attending college. After graduating in 1978 he was offered a full time position as salesman and accepted. As business continued to improve customer requests for them to expand into the furniture business grew. In 1982 a buy sell agreement was struck with the owners of the Travers Furniture Company and the name was changed to King Appliance and Furniture Co. Inc.
The wall between the two buildings was opened up and a great deal of remodeling was done. The business continued to thrive offering a full line of appliances, furniture, and home entertainment items. In 1988 Fred King decided to retire and Dan Lammers, the part timer hired in 1977 took over the business. At that time the slogan "Home of the Royal Treatment" was adopted and has become a time honored tradition ever since. With the change came two very valuable additions to the team. Sandy joined the office staff in 1988.


King Appliance and Furniture is currently open Monday through Thursday 8am to 6pm and Friday and Saturday 8am to 5pm and the promise of excellent service after the sale has never been more respected.
