Merlyn “Mert” Kraai

Founder (1917 - 2008)

Born & raised in Orange City, Mert needed to drop out of school during the Depression of the 1930’s. After working with his father in the meat market, he decided to start a furniture business out of his garage in 1939. The business struggled during the early years when Mert was drafted into the Navy during World War II, leaving a wife & newborn son behind. He served in the Pacific Theater until the war ended. He returned home & resumed his furniture business and later added floor covering and mattresses. His business grew & prospered over the years to 3 different locations in Orange City. In 1974 he built the store we are in to this day. Mert donated many hours to community, church and fund raising activities. Still, he always put his family first. He was liked & revered by friends, family and business associates. He developed a culture of “helping people” which we carry on to this day.

Dan has been in the furniture and floor covering business for most of his life. Delivering furniture during his high school years and helping install carpet during his college years. He went into the business full time with his father in 1972. Dan took charge of the business full time in 1982. During the 1990’s Dan became a shareholder in two buying group co-operatives: Carpet One and Furniture First. In 2007 he earned the title of Certified Flooring Executive and attained the certification of a Lead Paint Renovator in the state of Iowa. Dan has enjoyed his time working on civic committees and church endeavors. In his time away from work, he loves going to football games, spending time with his 3 boys and spoiling his 3 grandchildren. Dan believes “The customer doesn’t care how much you know, until he knows how much you care.”
