Today, Beckers is in its third generation, celebrating their 71st anniversary as a furniture store in 2017. Rick Becker, who has been in the business almost continuously since 1969, runs the store in a way that will seem familiar to his oldest customers. In these changing times we continue to strengthen our product line-up and our niche in the Rochester landscape as the furniture industry evolves in both style and countries of origin. Always at the center of our attention is fulfilling the needs and desires of our customers, not merely selling the products we happen to have in stock.
While we are happy to sell most pieces directly from the showroom floor, we continue to expand our special order business from the quality manufacturers we represent. Rick travels to the International Home Furnishing show in High Point, North Carolina, twice a year, where he sits on hundreds of sofas and visits 60-80 showrooms. He examines new product offerings of the manufacturers we represent and window-shops hundreds of manufacturers to scout out new resources.
Beckers Furniture has huge fabric selections from the upholstery manufacturers we carry. We continue to focus very heavily on upholstery with significant (but not exclusive) emphasis on our Flexsteel Studio Gallery featuring both cloth and leather styles in both stationary and recliner categories. The most exciting new trend has been the development of power motion furniture that not only reclines, but adjusts the headrest and lumbar support at the touch of a button. We encourage you to bring in samples of your rugs, wallpaper, paint and drapery to help you select the perfect upholstery combinations for your home. Photos of your room, even on a cell phone, can be very helpful in finding the perfect piece for both your comfort and your décor.
We hope you find our website to be a valuable tool for exploring the offerings of manufacturers we represent. It is useful for pre-shopping in the category of your need, as well as to refresh your memory of what you have encountered at the store or seen in our catalogs. Please feel free to print out images of items that pique your interest and bring them in with you. Our product knowledge and experience can be invaluable to you.
While we sell at low discount prices every day, we encourage you to come in periodically and take advantage of occasional special sales as well as random mark-downs on floor samples and discontinued items.
