Sowell's Furniture Searcy Ar historic photo

Sowell's Furniture!

What a great old picture and this, believe it or not, is on an advertisng card mailed to my family a few years ago.  The card was an invitation to join them in celebrating 65 years in the location at 207 W. Arch in Searcy AR!  There was to be a 25% to 65% off sale in the store.

The old picture is a treasure and I liked it on the card enough to save it all these years.   We are proud to have this store still in operation in downtown Searcy!  Thanks for the invitation and for being here for us, Sowell's Furniture!

Just to clarify something. The store wasn't named furniture store it was a home supply store as the fainter name on the facade says.

Here's something to think about. What was the competition?

How many and what were the names for other stores that sold furniture in Searcy town with a population of about 2000.

Don, those are good points.  They must have sold things other than furniture and they may have been in competition with Robbins-Sanford???  They also would not have gone to the corner as they do now.  This entry was in mid-block??

In my day, there was a furniture store that had large show windows with nice home furnishing displays. I can not remember it's name. I believe it was on Market Street. I'll take a look at some of the Petit Jean ads for info. I searched the phone directory for "furniture store" but came up empty.

There's an interesting piece about Sowell's store here.
