Get your feet wet!
Bring your suit and try out a hot tub in-store. Really! 

February 10, 2016



My sister Ann started it all with a phone call in the fall of 1979.

“Larry, have I got a business for you!” she said, and I was excited until the moment she said it was wood stoves. But after we learned how economically they could heat people’s homes, we jumped in with a lot of enthusiasm. (And a lot of prayer.) Within two months we had our first tiny store. We didn’t sell much that first year, but we learned a lot and boy did we have fun.

Thirty-five years later, we’ve grown into five superstores, selling more woodstoves, hot tubs and outdoor furniture than anyone else in the country. Best of all, my son Jon and daughter Jennifer are a big part of Rich’s. Jon runs our corporate operations and Jennifer and my wife Marianne plan the yearly redesign of all our stores so the latest products are always on display.

And we’re proud to have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

But Rich’s isn’t about us, it’s really about you; and making your home or backyard a haven, an escape, a place where time slows down just a bit and priceless memories are created.

Sure, we sell stoves, hot tubs, barbecues & grills, outdoor furniture, and they’re all top-notch quality, but those things are just a means to an end. Our true business is to bring families and friends together in their home or backyard, and make them a little more comfortable while they’re doing it.

For your home,

Larry Chapman
