It was the summer of 1960, and Troy and Wilma LaFevers were young and anxious to own their own business. They rented a small corner in the building that eventually became what consumers today know as LaFevers Furniture. That small start grew to a successful business, which sold appliances, furniture, and carpet. Troy and Wilma eventually moved on to other business ventures and their oldest son, Denton became the owner of the store in 1973. He met LouAnn Watson of Sapulpa, and they were married in 1974, and they have worked side by side for over 30 years. In 1998 their oldest son Chad joined the company after four years of college golf at ORU. He quickly proved to be a natural for retail. "Chad has been a big part of our success over the past 10 years, " said LouAnn LaFevers. In June of 2005, the LaFevers' youngest son, Jon, moved back to Sapulpa from Oklahoma City and began working full time. He received his bachelors in business administration from NSU in Tahlequah. Previously he worked in the Accounts Payable department of Chesapeake Energy in downtown Oklahoma City "It is an honor to be a part of a business with such a great history. My goal is to carry on the trend of being a leader in service, by continually understanding the importance of our customers and their home furnishing needs, " said Jon LaFevers. Jon is married to Rebecca LaFevers who is a local State Farm agent. Although the furniture store is undergoing major changes, the LaFevers say one thing will stay the same." The thing that has kept us in business for over 40 years is our personalized service. We're committed to creating personal relationships with our customers and we want to make sure they are pleased with their experience at our store, " said Chad LaFevers.
