Our History

Tradition never goes out of style.

It was March 19th, 1948, when J. Ray Weir, son of a furniture merchant and known as Ray to family and friends, opened the first Weir’s Furniture Company in a modest 20' by 70' storefront on Knox Street. Since that day, the company has grown to 4 locations in Plano, Southlake, North Dallas and recently redeveloped Dallas.

Here’s a look into some pivotal moments in our history.

He waits on customers, makes deliveries in his 1937 Chevy truck, and eventually acquires neighboring storefronts to expand.
