Our History

Our business was started in 1948 in Michigan. We moved to Gainesville in July 1958. To the right is our first Gainesville location : 1307 E. University Avenue.

In 1968 we moved to 526 N. Main Street where we added appliance sales to our service business.

In 1994 we moved to the Gainesville Shopping Center at 1124 N. Main Street. At this time Dad added Martin's Surplus Store. Chris & Travis referred to it as mini Wal-Mart!

We rented storefront locations for 42 yrs and decided it was time to buy a permanant location.

In 1999 we moved to our current location at 1809 N. Main Street. In keeping with tradition of adding something when we move, we rented out Budget Trucks. Recently, Travis started selling Nebo brand flashlights and now carries a large selection in stock.

As we're in our 70th year the Martin Family would like to say Thank-you for your business and the trust you've given us to take care of your appliance needs!
