CJ’s Furniture has been furnishing homes for over 90 years and its reputation for quality custom furniture helped it last all those years.
That reputation is what drew customers Jaimie and Joe Amati’s interest in purchasing the business when the previous owner retired.
“We had bought our furniture here and we knew the previous owner, Claudia, was going to retire soon,” said Jaimie. “I always thought it would be a good business to buy. I came in one day and asked her and she was ready to sell, so the timing worked out really well.”
The store has furnishing for the living room, bedroom and dining room. In addition, it has décor, accessories, lighting, lamps, area rugs, carpets and wall art to help bring the rooms together.
Deare Kametz, a customer at CJ’s Furniture said she visits the store for the exceptional customer service and high quality furniture.
“I could not be happier with the two chairs I purchased,” said Kametz. “The furniture at CJ’s is unique and not something you find online or in department stores. The fabric choices are beautiful and I am so happy I chose CJ’s Furniture. I will never shop anywhere else.”
Some notable vendors are Howard Miller grandfather clocks, Temple Furniture chairs, sofa and recliners and Marshfield Furniture and upholstery line.
After the Amati’s purchased CJ’s Furniture in 2021, they quickly brought the company into the 21st century by creating a website and Facebook page and updating payment options to include credit cards.
“You can’t order on the website, but you can browse all of our products and our vendors on there,” said Jaimie.
Within the store, they began modernizing the furniture styles, carrying fabrics that customers can order, offering free delivery and updating the windows to refresh the look of the store.
