Leon's in Canada is a popular franchise that sells furniture, mattresses, appliances and accents. The store calls itself "Canada's Top Furniture, Appliance, & More Store". Leon's is known for having fair prices and good deals on its merchandise.
Leon's was created in 1909 by a man named Ablan Leon. The store began as a small general merchandise store in Welland, Ontario. When Leon discovered how much could be made from selling larger items like mattresses, he expanded his inventory. Leon's has always been a family business, and after Ablan Leon died, his children took over the business. Leon's was so successful that it eventually became a franchise, and as of 2015, it continues to be a highly rated, profitable business.
