Bill Schepp Has Retired

After several years of semi-retirement, Mr. Charles W. “Bill” Schepp has retired. Mr. Schepp joined the sales force here at Crockin’s in 1994, where his friendly, outgoing personality and energetic presence were welcomed by both customers and fellow employees. Over his 20 years of dedicated service, he developed a loyal customer base and enjoyed meeting and talking with new people who would quickly become like old friends. We wish him a long and fulfilling retirement, spent in the company of family and friends. He will be missed!

Arthur Lee Has Retired

It is with sadness that we announce the retirement of longtime employee Arthur Lee.  Mr. Lee has been a faithful employee of Crockin’s Furniture since 1988, serving countless customers and touching many lives.  He developed a fiercely loyal customer base over the past 25 years and maintained more of a personal friendship than a business relationship with many of our patrons.  We wish him well and hope that retirement allows him to rest, enjoy himself, and spend more time with family and loved ones.  He will be missed.

Our January Clearance Sale is being extended!

Due to the inclement weather that we have seen over the past few days, we have decided to extend our January Clearance for one more week. This means sale prices will now be good through February 8, 2014! Although many residential streets are still relatively icy, we can assure you that High Street has been plowed and salted and that there is a clear path up to our front and back doors. We hope to see you this weekend or during the upcoming week!

A path has been cleared at both our front and back doors.
