Harry Truman was President When


It was 1952 when 2 school teachers decided to take a chance, risking their savings opening a furniture store. Bob put in $3000. Sam was a little short, so he threw in his car which they traded for this pickup truck.

They rented this store front from Hansen Photography. Randy Hansen's studio was upstairs. When they had a day without a sale they would go upstairs and sell Randy a pencil.

"Number Please", The operator would say. "Five Six" was my reply. Then she would ring our store. You can see our first phone number prominently displayed on the door of our truck below. Our phone numbers are longer now but among our phone numbers is 715-256-5656

All these years later, we're still taking chances at Stange's, buying uncommon home furnishings you won't find at stores that play it safe. Risk a short drive to Waupaca. With six floors of showrooms inside 3 attached buildings, there is plenty for you to see.
