Take the stress out of holiday shopping with my everyday low prices, free coffee and treats, and the best values in town.


Our History

Bob’s Discount Furniture was founded in 1991 by Bob Kaufman right here in Newington, Connecticut. As a young man, Bob always had an entrepreneurial spirit and got his start in the furniture business by purchasing scratch and dent sofas and loveseats from local manufacturers and wholesaling them out of his garage. He quickly realized there was a demand for quality, stylish furniture at affordable prices.

So in 1991, with just $10,000 in savings, Bob rented a small warehouse space and opened the first Bob’s Discount Furniture store. Our original store was only 20,000 square feet but carried a wide selection of living room, dining room, and bedroom furniture. With Bob’s vision of providing discounted furniture direct from the manufacturer and eliminating the middleman, the store was an instant success.

Whether you’re outfitting your first apartment or putting the finishing touches on your dream home, read on to learn why so many savvy shoppers choose Bob’s Discount Furniture as their trusted furniture source.

Our Story Begins in 1991

Bob’s Discount Furniture was founded in 1991 in Newington, CT by myself, Bob Kaufman. As a first-generation American, I grew up understanding the importance of value and good quality. I’ve carried those lessons with me throughout my career.

When I was first starting out in the furniture business in the 1970s, high-end furniture stores were the norm. As a new husband and father, I couldn’t afford the high markups those traditional retailers charged. I knew there had to be a way to offer stylish, comfortable furniture at a price regular folks could afford.

With that goal in mind, I opened the first Bob’s Discount Furniture store in Newington, CT in 1991. It was a simple 20,000 square foot store but it featured a full range of affordable living room, bedroom, and dining room furniture.

Word spread quickly about our huge selection of quality furniture at “way below retail” prices. We expanded over the next decade, opening stores throughout the Northeast. In 1997, we opened our first warehouse store in Manchester, CT featuring an even wider range of inventory at everyday low prices.

Today, Bob’s has grown into one of the largest furniture retailers in the country with over 120 stores across 19 states. But our commitment to providing quality furniture at the guaranteed lowest prices hasn’t changed. My son Bobby now heads up daily operations but our family approach to business remains the same.
