Furniture Deal$
816-318-1500
 belton, missouri
Almost 15 years ago, Furniture Deals got started right here in Belton. We’ve gone from one little delivery truck scooting around the neighborhood, to a fleet that now covers the entire KC metro and many surrounding rural cities and towns from St. Joseph down to the Lake of the Ozarks.
Over the course of a decade we have grown into one of the largest family owned furniture retailers in the Kansas City metro, but we’re still proud to call Belton our home. We’ve had fun over the years supporting Local Schools, Sports Teams, outfitting the Boys and Girls Club of Kansas City and Cornerstones of Care Ozanam Campus . We’ve ran and Raised money in the ALS marathon and Supported Children’s Charities such as the Children’s Miracle Network, St. Judes and Noahs Bandage Project. We now employ around 100 people, mostly from Cass County and are grateful to be given the continuing support from the Community. We are excited to continue growing with you!
So we built this showroom for you! We’ve spent countless hours researching and planning, agonizing over paint colors and wall art, trying to make sure that when you walk around this floor, you can see Kansas City pride every step of the way. We hope to spend another 15 years bringing you the best deals on beautiful bedrooms, luxurious living room groups, and dining rooms ranging from dainty to dazzling!  Come in and check out the best new styles at down home prices, Just for You and thanks to you!
