We have built our company by delivering value to consumers and demonstrating integrity to everyone we work with. Our founder, Mrs. B, started the family business in 1937, when Nebraska Furniture Mart began in the cramped basement of Rose Blumkin's husband's pawn shop with a $500 investment. Mrs. B.'s vision holds true today in our more than one million combined square-feet of retail space.
We understand retail firsthand. Our neighbors at Grandscape will be other large, one-of-a-kind destination retailers who share our grand vision, as well as retail enterprises of all sizes who share our values. Those values include: integrity, loyalty, quality, teamwork and cost-effectiveness.
