The Founders of the company were the late Moses Wright Turner, Sr., and his son the late Moses Wright Turner, Jr. Despite the bad economy during the Great Depression and World Wars I and II, the company continued to grow. Over the years, the family branched out, adding two more furniture stores, one located in Bainbridge in 1940 and another in Tifton in the 1950’s. Scott R. Turner came home and became involved in the business at the Pelham store.
January 1, 2002 Russell Turner and Scott Turner opened their first Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Tallahassee. A second store was opened in Mobile, Alabama in October of 2003 and a third store was opened in Pensacola, Florida in March 2004. The Ashley division saw enormous growth in 2006 through 2007 with the opening of stores in Biloxi, MS; Spanish Fort, AL; Greensboro, NC; Winston-Salem, NC; Thomasville, GA; Opelika AL; Columbus, GA, and Burlington, NC.
