Sun Furniture was founded in 1950 by H. Leo Greengus just one block from the store’s current 20,000-square-foot location. The company has been family-owned and operated for its entire history and is currently led by Randy Greengus, son of H. Leo and Shirley Greengus. Many of the store’s customers are second- and third-generation family members who continue to shop at Sun Furniture today.

Sun Furniture’s spacious showroom is filled with a wide variety of home furnishings. By keeping its overhead low, the store is able offer very low prices and quick delivery.

“We’re not fancy on the outside — that’s why we save you money on the inside,” said Randy Greengus. “Our location is easy to find, just seconds from I-20 and I-49 on Texas Avenue.”

Over the years, Sun Furniture has become northwestern Louisiana’s destination for stylish, quality furnishings at an exceptional value, said Greengus.

“This sale event offers customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy brand name furniture at going-out-of-business prices. We look forward to seeing many old friends during the sale.” 

Everything in the store will be sold before the closing. A huge selection of product will be available during the sale, with discounts varying depending on the category. Products are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We suggest shoppers come in early for the best selection,” Greengus said.
