About Us

Tennysons was founded in 1936 by my Grandparents Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Tennyson by repairing small appliances in their garage. Soon they were servicing and selling all sorts of home appliances. In the mid 1940's Tennysons expanded into home furnishings. We were one of the first retailers in mid-Missouri to offer furniture and appliances. We have spent every year since providing the people of central Missouri with quality furniture at affordable prices to establish us as the absolute, value leaders. Every time we meet with a customer we do so with the idea in mind that we are working with our neighbors.

Today we have furniture for every room including living room, bed room, dining room, entertainment, home office and an extensive mattress line made right here in Missouri.  We also offer all sorts of accessories including wall hangings, area rugs, lamps lighting, clocks, pillows and decorator items. We carry many name brands like Ashley, Best Chair Co., Klaussner, Restonic, Coaster, Vaughan-Bassett and many more.

Tennysons has always been deeply attached to this community. We are members . We have been members of the Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Business Association and the East Side Business Association. We consistently donate to local charity auctions and fundraisers. On a personal level I am a past member of the Athletic Events Committee, the Jefferson City Local Organizing Committee for the Tour of Missouri, the Missouri Trail Advisory Board and I am a founding member of the Osage Region Trail Association who has built and maintains thirty plus miles of natural surface multi-use trails in mid-Missouri. My wife and I have two boys who attend Helias Catholic school and Truman State University. We also help coach football, basketball, baseball and cross country. We are born and raised mid-Missourians.
