About Rooms to Go

Rooms To Go Incorporated is a Seffner, Florida-based furniture store chain with 106 stores operating in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Puerto Rico. The company was founded in September 7, 1990 by Jeffrey and Morty Seaman, when they sold Seaman Furniture Company. Julius Seaman opened his first store in 1933 after dropping out of the seventh grade. His enterprise gradually increased to an annual $150,000 in sales and allowed him to send his two sons to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. 'His big[gest] goal in life was that his boys would follow him and build up his business,' Morton Seaman told Forbes. Julius Seaman died at the age of 48 of a heart attack. He left Morton, the elder son and college graduate, to help his mother save for the business, while Carl, still in school, did what he could on weekends and vacations. In 1955, they spent $1,000 USD on the store's first ad.
