When it began in the 40s, Ayers carried everything from hardware supplies to carpeting. Over time, the three brothers who ran it??W.J., Leroy, and Gordon??turned their attention to helping people outfit their homes in traditional furniture and accents. Today, Ayers Furniture carries a variety of national brands including Sealy, La-Z-Boy and Lane, with products to fill the entire house stretched out over its 52,000 square-foot location. Now owned by a second generation of Ayers brothers, the shop continues to deliver quality furniture with a traditional look. You can redesign an entire living room with neutral colors and hardwood tables, chairs, and cabinets, or purchase the perfect bed to help you hunt down sheep in your sleep.
