7 Day Furniture
Rod Kush’s Furniture was incorporated on August 7, 1987, as Furniture On Consignment, Inc. Furniture on Consignment was started by Rod Kush after a successful career in the National Football League with the Buffalo Bills and Houston Oilers.
The merchandise sold when Furniture on Consignment opened for business was primarily used furniture. As the business has evolved, it moved away from selling just used furniture to also carry first quality new merchandise.
The company located to 72nd and L Street in 1992 from the previous location of 94th and J Street and experienced tremendous growth, adding Appliance & Electronics, Carpet & Flooring, Rent to Own, and Mrs. K’s to the Omaha location, and then subsequently opening additional locations in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1996, Fremont, Nebraska in 2003, and Norfolk in 2004. In addition, Mattressland stores were added in Bellevue and Lincoln, Rent-to-Owns in Benson, South Omaha, Council Bluffs and the Mall of the Bluffs. In 2005, Rod also opened numerous Cash Advance locations around the Omaha and Lincoln areas.
In April of 2006, the Rent-to-Own locations separated into their own stand alone company and the retail furniture business was closed.
In October of 2006, 7 Day Furniture, Inc. was established at the old 72nd and L Street location in Omaha more streamlined and efficient than its predecessor. As the retail trade began to grow, the rent-to-own and cash advance stores were permanently closed in 2009 and a new retail outlet was opened in Lincoln on May 15, 2009. Even as the economy trended downward 2008-2009, 7 Day Furniture has managed to keep the sales steady and increasing, and expect to see even greater increases as the economy continues to recover through 2010.
