The company was founded in McAllen, Texas in 1935 by Russian immigrant Sam Lack. Lack originally sold auto parts until the 1940s, when auto parts began to be rationed along with food and gasoline due to World War II. Lack then decided to begin selling appliances and eventually furniture. In 1990, Myles Aaronson, Sam Lack's son-in-law, purchased the company from Lack and his son Stanley. He then changed the company's name to Lacks Valley Furniture in 1995. As of 2015, the company is owned by Aaronson's son Lee.Learn more about Furniture
