Focus on Business: Find great service, affordable prices at Fickes Furniture –


Fickes Furniture has been in the retail furniture business for more than 97 years and there are two things that remain constant about this fourth generation business: you will find quality furniture at affordable prices and you will receive great customer service.

Started by Walter Fickes, back in 1908 and joined by Lewis Winbigler in 1919, Fickes Furniture operated their store in downtown Jeromesville, in what used to be the east half of the current Jeromesville Pub. These two men were partners in furniture as well as the funeral industry. In 1926 the two men split apart, Fickes kept the funeral home and Winbigler the furniture store. In that same year, Winbigler moved the furniture store into the present building, which was the old Jeromesville School. In 1941, Walter and his son, Rodney purchased the furniture store back from Mr. Winbigler, and it’s operated today by the third and fourth generation, Don and Mark Fickes.

The furniture industry has definitely seen a great deal of change over the years. From a time when the owner built and sold their own products, to a time where you can control your favorite recliner with a phone app. Fickes Furniture considers buying furniture to be an investment rather than an expense and supports that philosophy with the products it sells. Displaying all the latest styles and designs, such as Flexsteel, Heritage Sleep Products, IMAX Home Accessories, Mohawk Carpet Smith Brothers of Berne, and Yutzy Woodworking, you are sure to invest your money into a product that will last a lifetime.

Flexsteel and Smith Brothers of Berne, are two of the most recognizable names in the furniture industry. Flexsteel has been building quality furniture since 1893 and Smith Brothers since 1926. These two companies have withstood the test of time by making quality pieces that are backed with lifetime warranties.

Two of the newest additions to the showroom floor are Heritage Sleep Products and Yutzy Woodworking, both based out of Ohio. Heritage Sleep offers a wide range of bedding products including foam, pillow-top, plush, and firm mattresses. The most popular item this year has been the adjustable bed. These beds fit inside your existing headboard and footboard. They offer every size including a queen split, so each person can have the mattress of his/her choice.

Our bedding will be on sale now through the end of August. All sets will have an additional 10-percent off our everyday price. Delivery and setup are free, as well as the disposal of your old.
