Serving the Community Since 1931 When you shop here, it's all about YOU
The Beginning In 1946, a young Bill Crane walked into a store called Alton Refrigeration
After a short meeting with the owners, Bill Crane was hired on the spot. Little did he know his new job would last a lifetime and take some dramatic turns along the way.
The Early Years 1952 brought more surprises like Bill buying the company
With the support of his wife Margie and his family, they both began a lifetime of very hard work and dedication to their customers, their employees and their families.
The Next Generation In the 1970s and 1980s, the company underwent changes to keep up with the times
We changed the name to Alton Refrigeration & Home Furnishings after expanding to more top-name brand appliances, electronics, furnitures, and bedding.
The Torch is Passed Bill Jr. and his two sons, John and Gary, continue to work in the company
Over all the years, the one thing that has remained the same is our commitment in placing customers first. Our goal is to find the product that best suits your individual needs and lifestyle.
