The Blockers Difference

Home. It’s where memories are made and where families gather. Blockers Furniture understands the importance of having a comfortable home. And for nearly a century, the Blockers family has been providing North Central Florida residents with the furniture and accessories needed to make their house a home.

Living room, kitchen, bedroom, office. You name it, Blockers has a great selection of furnishings to complete your favorite spaces.

Family-owned and operated since the 1920s, Blocker’s Furniture has a solid reputation for its top-notch service, reasonable prices and tremendous selection.

A visit to Blockers’ expansive 80,000-square-foot showroom reveals room after room of beautiful, top quality furniture. Brands like Flexsteel, Lexington, Bassett, England, Ashley and many more are all displayed and ready to be tried out.

“It is our mission to have furniture that will fit everyone’s needs, budget and lifestyle,” says Rusty Blocker, Director of Sales.

Blockers may be a huge showroom today, but its beginnings were far more humble. In 1924, J.E. Blocker purchased an old department store and established the Blockers brand. Some twenty years later, J.E. and a partner purchased an old department store and set Blockers onto its current path. From the 60s to the late 80s, the store underwent a transition that shifted the focus from a warehouse-type store to a quality furniture store. Today, Blockers occupies the largest showroom in Ocala.

“Good prices, excellent customer service and an understanding of our clients’ needs have contributed to our solid reputation and have helped us stay in business for so many decades,” says Rusty.

In addition to furniture, Blockers offers clients the best names in mattresses. Tempurpedic, Simmons and Serta are just a few of the brand-name options.

For those who think they can’t afford quality furniture, think again. Blockers prides itself on offering sturdy, comfortable furniture at competitive prices. And financing is available for customers wanting to go that route.

You won’t find cookie-cutter, flimsy furniture at Blockers. Instead, clients have the option to personalize their choices. The design center offers dozens upon dozens of fabric options, and many pieces can be tailored to meet your specific design goals and needs.

For a minimal charge (whether it’s one table or multiple rooms of furniture), the professionals at Blockers will also unbox, assemble and inspect all your pieces at their warehouse before delivering them and placing them in your home. How easy.

If all of this isn’t enough, Blockers also offers an interactive website. Customers have the option of visiting the site’s Room Planner or Design Center to get a feel for the kind of furniture and styles they want for their space before making the trip to the store.

Whether you’re in the market for a whole home upgrade or are just looking for that perfect piece to complete your entryway, start with the experts at Blockers. You’ll be glad you did.
