Homemakers Furniture has broken ground on another project that will add unparalleled depth to our customer service.
One year after launching our e-commerce site, we’re expanding yet again. Our latest project is a 120,000-square-foot warehouse facility that will span the equivalent of 42 tennis courts, sitting on a five-acre plot of land on the northeast side of our property.
Recently, Great Day Iowa featured us on their show; watch the clip below for more information on this exciting new build!

More about Homemakers Furniture
Carl and Ina Merschman founded Homemakers Furniture in 1974, opening the original store in Des Moines with ten employees. The company grew, and in 1985, the Merschmans opened a second location in Urbandale. The Urbandale store underwent numerous major renovations and expansions during the ‘90s and on, absorbing the Des Moines factory outlet in 2009.
Later that year, Homemakers held a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the grand opening of the newly renovated showroom. Homemakers expanded its warehouse in 2012, adding 56% more storage capacity. Then in 2014, Homemakers celebrated 40 years of tradition with a brand new e-commerce site, making their impressive selection and legendary low prices accessible across the United States.
Nebraska Furniture Mart, part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway group, acquired Homemakers in 2000. The Merschman family continues to operate and manage the company, as they have for more than four decades.
