About Us

Family owned and operated since 1895

Ackerman’s Furniture Service is the leader in fine furniture restoration. Being involved in furniture has always been a part of our lives. 

Our great great grandfather, Daniel Gephart, started a furniture business in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1895. In the 1940s, Ackerman’s continued this tradition by establishing the largest furniture showroom in the Midwest along Freeway I-494 in Bloomington. After leaving the retail industry, the next generation of Ackerman's transitioned into restoring furniture.

In the 1940's Ackerman's continued this tradition by opening a store in Richfield, Minnesota. In the 1960's Ackerman's built the largest furniture showroom in the Midwest, along the newly constructed 494 corridor in Bloomington, Minnesota.

A history of excellence

We know the importance and value of furniture, whether purchased in the United States or brought over from the Old Country, and strive to maintain these iconic pieces of heritage so that they might continue to be passed on to future generations.

These values remain with us today, along with the Old World work ethic. Our goal is to repair or restore your furniture as if it were our own.
