Westwoods Furniture opened October 1, 1973 as Westwoods of Yuma Ready to Finish Furniture. A retired marine and his wife, Hop and Janet Ritter, built a 1400 square foot store on Avenue B to display solid wood unfinished furniture and the supplies to finish it.
In July 1975 Larry Hieber became part of the business. Westwoods then began offering custom finished furniture in a variety of colors and finishes. With an expansion in 1977 and a major makeover in 1983 Westwoods went from a 1400 square foot store to nearly 8,000 square feet.
With the pressure of imported furniture from China the suppliers of unfinished furniture for Westoods started to finish their own furniture. Thus the inventory became more finished than unfinished. Leather and upholstered goods were also added to the inventory.
With Larry’s and his employees experience in finishing , assembly and repair of furniture makes Westwoods unique among other stores in Yuma. Westwoods philosophy is to provide a quality product at an affordable price every day and offer excellent customer service.
Westwoods is Yuma’s original wood furniture store in Yuma providing three generations of Yumans with quality furniture for every room of their home.
Come by and let Westwoods show you why it is a Yuma favorite for quality home furnishings and customer service excellence. Family owned and operated since 1973.
