Tate's Furniture was started in 1976 in Canton, Mississippi, by Arthur and Consuella Tate. The Tate Family had been in the Retail Clothing Business since 1968. The Tates decided to venture out into the furniture business after the need for a furniture store had presented itself to them from different people in the community. The business has prospered and grown throughout the years.
The Tates then decided that the old location wasn't sufficient to showcase the beautiful pieces of furniture they offered. So, in February 2001, the new location on Interstate 55 in Canton opened with a variety of products from contemporary to traditional. The store includes living room furniture, dining room sets, bedroom sets, entertainment centers, bedding, and accessories. The Tates encourage everyone to come by and see their beautiful store.
Mr. Arthur Tate, Sr. received Small Business Man of the Year 2000.
