Description

Founded by entrepreneur Don Gabbert in 1946, Gabberts started as a tire and appliance store in downtown Minneapolis, before converting to a general home furnishings shop seven years later. In 1959, Don moved the company to the Twin Cities suburb of Edina. This new store featured furniture creatively displayed in vignettes — a first for the industry — allowing customers to envision how entire rooms of items would look in their homes. The lower level included a family-friendly Garden Court,.. offering free refreshments, patio seating and a play area for kids. Another notable event in 1959 was when Gabberts opened the country's premier design studio inside a furniture store, setting a new trend for furniture retail. Gabberts soon became synonymous with design. Through the years, the company was owned and operated by the Gabberts family, with management responsibilities passing from Don to sons John and Jim. In February 2007 Gabberts unveiled a five million dollar renovation – a top to bottom remodel. Now the store provides an easy-to-navigate, less cluttered environment to provide a more rewarding experience. Seven resource centers were consolidated to one Inspiration Center to make it easy for the customer to visualize their design choices and plan with a Gabberts consultant. In August 2008, Gabberts announced it signed a definitive purchase agreement to sell the company's assets to Twin Cities-based HOM Furniture, the regional furnishings leader at the "good" and "better" levels of the market. HOM brings to Gabberts a strong infrastructure buying power, distribution network and extensive service footprint that will help Gabberts better service current customers, reach new customers and grow the brand regionally. We are currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Design Studio. For the past 50 years, Minnesotans (and others around the globe), have trusted the designers at Gabberts for professional guidance in the interior design of their homes. Our Design Studio has over 20 highly qualified and accredited designers who choose to make Gabberts their home. Discover the depth of the Gabberts Design Studio and experience the legacy that is creating beautiful interiors the world over.
