106th Anniversary & Giveaway!
We are celebrating Gladhill Furnitures 106th anniversary this April. Throughout the years, Gladhill has served the local Frederick area as well as surrounding communities. Although Gladhill has faced adversity over the last year including challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, this company and its employees have overcome great challenges and have been thriving since re-opening.
106 years ago, in 1915, Gladhill furniture doubled as a casket-making company as well as a furniture retailer. The store, owned by Lola and Calvin Gladhill was successful as each of them had a unique skillset, Calvin was the funeral director, whereas Lola was focused on the development of caskets. As the years went on, Gladhill (still in the same location) was taking out ads to feature the store that has a fully functioning chapel, and sold the most modern and innovative furniture in the state in the 20’s. In the 30's Gladhill began to focus on furniture development. During this time Gladhill employed local cabinet makers to fashion furniture in multiple types of solid wood, pieces that can still be found in some homes in Maryland as well as around the country.
At the turn of the century, Jim Nicholson purchased Gladhill furniture from the Gladhill family. Mr. Nicholson has used his decades of expertise to recognize the potential within Gladhill. Since his purchase, the store has been revitalized and was given a much overdue renovation, including a new logo, interior upgrades, and a new coat of paint on the exterior of the building. Jim and his team of expert design consultants have created a friendly, reliable environment for Marylanders to buy reliable, comfortable, durable furniture that has top-notch customization, fit for any room in any home!
To celebrate 106 years of stupendous service, Gladhill Furniture will be hosting a giveaway for a La-Z-Boy recliner. Entry can be done within the store or online. Please contact the store at 301-371-6800 for more information regarding the sale! Sale runs April 6, 2021-April 30, 2021.
