Wagner’s Home Furnishings

Someone recently stopped by our offices and dropped off a stack of early editions of the Indy—mostly from 1993, when the paper cost 50 cents—and a few late-’80s issues of the local daily paper. Among the latter, we couldn’t help but notice a retro looking full-page ad for Wagner’s, touting the company’s then-35 years of “offering service before, during and after the purchase.” Another 28 years later—Wagner’s first opened on East Front Street in 1953—not much has changed with how this Missoula staple does business. Oh, sure, the styles and offerings are updated, and there’s a modern storefront at SW Higgins Avenue, but it’s still the same family-owned operation that local customers have come to know and trust. In fact, the tagline from that 1988 ad is still used by Wagner’s today: “Because we believe home should be the nicest place you ever go.” Wagner’s Home Furnishings • 916 SW Higgins Ave • 728-3214 •
