About Us

Buddys Home Furnishings 02

Buddy's Home Furnishings was founded in 1961 by Mr. Norman "Slats" Slatton. Selling used appliances from his home, Slatton had a dream that one day he would have an appliance store of his own where he could service the demands of growing Tampa. A few years later, Slatton's dreams were realized when he opened his first appliance showroom.

Later on Mr. Slatton realized that a growing number of young families were not able to purchase a new television or appliance because they either lacked good credit or were unable to come up with a large down payment. It was at this time the "Rent to Own" plan was introduced to the bay area.

In 2011, Buddy's was excited celebrated its 50th year as a family owned business. Buddy's Home Furnishings currently has over 120 stores in 11 states and 3 countries!
