History of a Family Business:

In 1949, with a strong back, $800.00 and a car and trailer, Richard purchased used furniture from individuals in the greater Lawrence area and from auctions in Boston.

Shortly thereafter, Richard started selling new furniture. Next Richard purchased his first moving van and started Richard The Mover.

In 1954, Richard's moved to Archer Street, in 1964 Richard's outgrew the Archer Street location and purchased the old Lawrence wholesale drug building at 25 Water Street, where Richard's sells only brand new name brand home furnishings.

In 1979, Richard moved his used furniture annex to 30 Water Street, across from Richard's 5-floor NEW furniture showroom.

Richard and Rita Cormier have pretty much retired from the family business now, but leave the everyday running of the business to their daughter Lynne and son-in-law Gamal, who manage the used furniture annex. The new furniture store is operated by Richard's daughter Suzan and son Rick. The children grew up in the furniture store and are very knowledgeable about furniture.
