At age 23, Bob Mills, newly graduated from college and stuck in a dead-end job as a typist, took a chance on opening his first furniture store at 2526 SW 29th in Oklahoma City. While there, the business thrived for many years, constantly growing before Bob had to move the business to a bigger location in the late 1980s, this is the same 110,000 square foot facility at 3600 W. Reno in Oklahoma City, and is now the flagship location of all our stores! Our locations have grown from the original Oklahoma City, Corporate offices to Tulsa, Oklahoma, and our Texas locations, Lubbock, Amarillo, Temple, Waco, Midland, Odessa and San Antonio.
This year marks the golden anniversary for Bob Mills Furniture. Since 1971, Bob Mills Furniture has delivered 50 years of beautiful furniture. We have aimed to offer the greatest comfort and value, with elegant styles to match your taste, decor, and design. In addition to comfort and style, we have also made certain to offer brands with strong reputations and track records of durability so that you can enjoy your furniture investment for years to come.
Years have passed since Bob last promoted the store with a country-western band, and he's no longer wearing sweaters or proclaiming his store as "the working man's friend." But the memories are still there of how long it took to have success. Bob said, "Our success happened when we were able to start hiring some good employees. I'm a great believer that this is a people business. The people determine your success. The people determine whether you or your company will be successful. That first employee hired was back in 1976. Today, in 2021, we have a little over 400 employees and our success is a record that proves people made the difference."
What Makes Us Different
There are distinct differences in your shopping experience at Bob Mills Furniture.
- As the home of "NO SHOPPER STALKERS" our customers have a relaxed and enjoyable shopping experience. Bob Mills decided to do something that no one else would. Once you enter the store you won’t have to worry about "shopper stalkers" following you around everywhere asking a million questions. Our Sales Hosts have a steady income that ensures you get help only when you need it.
- In the Bob Mills Sleep Spa we use BedMatch to help you find the RIGHT mattress. Our exclusive BedMatch system profiles your back using 18 statistical measurements and sensor technology to determine what mattress is right for you. Reviewed by physicians at Duke University, BedMatch was developed in collaboration with the Sleep to Live® Institute. You deserve to know which mattress is the best match for your body & budget.
- The final difference is our Companion's Pricing. This allows our customers to get everything they want, all together for less than if you bought the items separately.
At Bob Mills Furniture, we believe that everyone is family. We feel it is our responsibility to contribute as members of the communities where we work and where we live.
