“My father, Davis Legate, started the business in 1960,” said owner Clark Legate. “My dad retired a couple years ago; I am second generation.”
Legate’s is affiliated with the Mega Group of more than 600 stores and Mohawk Color Center programs, which allows the business to have the most competitive prices in top brand names, mattresses and floor coverings.
“We are the oldest furniture and flooring carrier in Madisonville,” said Legate. “We offer Lane, Bassett, Craftmaster, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, and we are currently an authorized retailer for Duck Commander in license sofas and recliners. We are also a Mohawk color center.”
Legate’s offers a showroom available for customers to come in and view customized tile work, and hardwood-flooring.
During the 54 years of operation, Legates has also branched out to Legate’s Used and Bruised Furniture, as well as Legate’s Liquidation.
“We also have Legate’s Used and Bruised and Legate’s Liquidation,” said Legate. “At the used and bruised store, we handle mostly used furniture out of it. The Liquidation store — we will buy factory close-outs, discontinues, overruns, and if a product stays on our floor here at the main store too long, we will take it off and send it down to the liquidation store to get cost back out of it.”
Legate continues to live up to his father’s word.
“What my dad started was selling people quality furniture at a discount price,” said Legate. “We discount up to 40 percent off suggested retail price every day. So, you may see a sofa the same price as the one we have in town, but if you look at the quality of that sofa, it won’t be the same quality you would get here.”
