About WG&R

Welcome to WG&R Furniture!

Welcome to our local, family owned business that’s dedicated to serving your family. As Northeast Wisconsin’s largest furniture and mattress retailer we’re able to offer savings and service that the competition just can’t match. With stores in Green Bay, Appleton, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Oshkosh and Sheboygan, we’re convenient too.

You won’t find a better selection of name brand furniture anywhere. From Ashley to La-Z-Boy and Broyhill to Bassett you’ll find it all here and all at the guaranteed lowest price! Whether it’s a new sofa to help you relax after a long day, a dining table to gather around with family and friends or new bedroom furniture, we have the largest selection of styles and designs to meet any budget.

Today, the WG&R family has grown to include more styles and more value within our WG&R Sleep Shops, WG&R Clearance Centers, and August Haven showroom.

We appreciate your business and are always here to serve our local communities.

 

Our Local History

WG&R Furniture first opened its doors with the slogan “A mile from downtown, ’tis true, but a mile from high prices too!” The original owners (Henry Wagnitz, Paul Greene, Carl Greene and Henry Rupp) founded the company on one core principle; we take care of our customers. While styles have changed over the years, WG&R has shown innovative ways to consistently deliver on this principle with more stores, better-valued products, Factory-Direct mattresses and customer service like no other.
