Our Story


In l945 John M. and Lora Sowell began a business specializing in selling used wooden ice boxes. Obtaining new merchandise during this wartime era was near to impossible. To keep up with the demand, John made monthly trips to St. Louis and Chicago to bring back those items and whatever else was available. Eventually he found a market in Chicago selling new items, thus the real beginning of Sowell's Home Supply, now Sowell's Furniture, Inc.

John M. Sowell Inside his furniture store, Sowell's Home Supply.  Still at the same location on Arch St. since 1945! What started in a 3,000 sq. ft. building at 207 West Arch has grown to a showroom area of 38,000 sq. ft. plus two warehouses in downtown Searcy, Arkansas still including the original address. Sowell's has remained a family operated business taking pride in offering the latest styles in furnishings and the lowest prices in town.
