Flashback to the Seventies, young Bob Foss lived in Florida and had a successful career selling furniture for Sears. His passion for furniture eventually led him to partner with a friend in the purchase of Burney’s Furniture in 1979, and that’s when he and his family moved to Louisiana. Toni Foss, Bob’s wife, and Lisa Foss, Bob’s daughter, both worked in the store handling everything from merchandising and office management to in-home design services.
Bob passed away in October of 2008. That was a difficult and sad loss for Burney’s. By 2012, Toni Foss and Lisa Foss Hicks, who are the current owners, decided to give the store a fresh new look and that’s what you’ll find these days. Today, Lisa is also the store manager and oversees all operations. From the beginning and to this day, Burney’s offers free in home design services and is as passionate as ever about the business. You’ll find an in-store La-Z-Boy Comfort Studio and an America’s Mattress Gallery featuring Serta, iComfort and Simmons Beautyrest. Another remarkable thing about Burney’s is that a number of the employees have been there for 25 years or more. Burney’s is a family and customers can feel that. We look forward to serving you!
