Conn`s HomePlus is one of the top consumer goods retailers in the United States. Let’s have a look at Conn’s history because it is quite interesting and goes all the way back to the 1890s.
The founder Edward Eastham started a small plumbing and heating company in Beaumont, Texas. A few years later, they hired Carroll Wayne Conn, Sr. He bought the company from Edward Eastham a year later and renamed the company to Conn Plumbing and Heating Company. Soon after the take-over, Conn’s added refrigerators to its merchandise mix. The sales did so well, by 1940, he was able to buy his own store building and moved the company to its new location. In 1953, C.W. Conn, Jr. joined the business after serving in the Korean War. A second store was opened in 1959. Everything was going great, however he realized that many customers were lacking good quality repair and maintenance service. So, in 1962, he started the Appliance Parts and Service unit in an attempt to meet this need. C.W. Conn, Jr. also co-founded a consumer credit company in order to provide financing to those who needed to buy merchandise for their homes in an affordable way.
Under Mr. Conn, Jr.’s leadership, the company managed to open four stores and their total sales reached $4 million in 1966. The first store outside of Texas opened in Louisiana in 1969. In 1993, was a benchmark year because Conn's reached $100 million in sales. Only five years later, the sales volume doubled to $200 million. During the 2000s, the company continued to expand its geographic reach across the South and proved its position in the retail industry. In 2008, the company’s sales reached $1 billion in total revenues. In 2012, Conn’s finally introduced its new store concept, Conn’s HomePlus® by renovating the already existing stores.
Today Conn’s Inc. is headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, and employs more than 4,500 people across the South, namely Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. The company's shares are publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol 'CONN'.
