From Home Furnishing Business
Montgomery’s Buys Malchows Home Furnishings
South Dakota-based home furnishings resource Montgomery’s has announced its purchase of Malchows Home Furnishings in Aberdeen, S.D., forming a strong partnership between two long-time family-owned furniture stores by combining over 200 years of experience in fine home furnishings.
“Discussion of joining Montgomery’s started after the devasting fire that burned Malchows to the ground in October of 2019,” stated Mark Malchow, one-half of the third-generation father/son team. “We knew from the moment we started talking with Clark and Eric Sinclair that Montgomery’s shared our business philosophies on how to take care of customers and employees, and what it means to be a long-time family- owned business in this state. We could not be more pleased to be in a position of growth in this market.”
“Both companies have not only survived but thrived through droughts, recessions, wars and multiple pandemics,” said Eric Sinclair, 5th generation owner of Montgomery’s. “We see the future as bright, and are committed to providing beautiful, unique home furnishings right here in South Dakota as people are taking comfort in spending more time at home, and especially now as more value is being placed on doing business locally.”
Mark Malchow’s role as managing partner with Montgomery’s will begin in 2021. A fourth Montgomery’s location will be built in Aberdeen later this year. The new showroom will be built in the former Office Max location on Highway 12 between Target and Walmart and will be more than double in size. An estimated seven to ten new employees will be hired as construction nears completion later this year.
Montgomery’s will offer a wide variety of quality, fashion-forward name brand home furnishings, flooring, lighting, window treatments, and mattresses in addition to complimentary interior design service. All prior Malchows sales will be serviced at the new store so customers need not worry about repairs or warranties. A fourth Montgomery’s location will be built in Aberdeen later this year.
A large-scale retirement sale for Tom Malchow will begin in mid-August on site at the former Office Max location. “The retirement sale will offer amazing values as a way to acknowledge my dad for all he has done to build this business and to thank the Aberdeen community for their ongoing and continued support,” said Mark Malchow. Mark and Tom Malchow and the Malchows team will run the sale out of that location through the fall prior to completion of construction and opening of the new Montgomery’s store.
