In 1922 Julius and Jake Atz co-founded Atz Furniture in Goshen, Indiana. The business expanded in 1928 to locations in Kendallville, Indiana (managed by Julius's son Eugene), and in 1942 in Ligonier, Indiana (managed by his other son John). After 36 years, the original Goshen store closed in 1958.
John bought out his bother Eugene in 1978 and became a sole owner of Atz Furniture. He worked in both the Kendallville and Ligonier stores until son Joe joined the business in 1982 and took over the Ligonier store until 1990.
Sadly, John Atz passed away in 2006 after pioneering throughout his 67 years in the ATZ Family Furniture Business. Joe remained overseeing the family business.
In 2013 Kendallville became the Atz Furniture's sole location with 15,000 square feet of furniture on display.
It has been our pleasure to serve the people of Northeast Indiana and beyond over the past 95 years and we look forward to continuing that tradition for decades to come.
