A Little History

While serving his country from 1942 to 1946, our founder, the legendary Sam Peter learned radio technology. Being an entrepreneur, Sam came home to Ithaca, bought a gas station and began to sell televisions. Ever expanding, he bought the lot next door and opened Sam Peter TV & Appliances. With the help of his son, then Vice President of the business, they chose to add furniture. Over sixty years later Sam Peter Furniture & Bedding is still located at the 1083 Danby Road location, building on the reputation and service that Sam was known for. The current owner, Sam’s nephew, Mark Fiore has been managing the store since 1981.
