Del Sol Furniture's humble beginnings trace back to 1997. When entrepreneurs Venancio and Rosa Macias leased a small 2,000 square foot space inside a shopping center known as "Family Mart" on the east side of Phoenix at 21st Street and McDowell Road. Del Sol was founded to provide quality furniture, mattresses, electronics, and appliances through accessible credit plans and great pricing to everyone!
Del Sol was embraced by its customers and quickly began to outgrow its original leased space. A second location was opened in the West Valley in 1998. This 9,000 square foot store at 57th Avenue and Camelback Road in Glendale, Arizona was more than triple the size of the first store. A year later, a third store opened on 29th Avenue and Van Buren Street in Central Phoenix.
In the year 2000, to better serve its customers and expand its market, Del Sol invested in a 15,000 square foot multi-racked distribution center in West Phoenix. The next year heralded the company’s greatest expansion yet, when Del Sol began development of a 2-acre site on 32nd Street and Thomas Road in East Phoenix. In 2002, the 23,000 square foot shopping center, Plaza Del Sol opened its doors, anchored by Del Sol Furniture along with several tenants.
In 2007 Del Sol Furniture opened its current distribution center, a 25,000 square foot building on 39th Avenue and Van Buren Street in Phoenix, which also houses the corporate office and financing operations.
Del Sol Furniture’s most recent expansion came in December of 2008 with its Arizona Mills Mall location. This store contains 17,000 square feet of showroom space at the popular regional mall located in Tempe, Arizona.
Currently, Del Sol Furniture operates with 4 stores in the Phoenix Metro area and has evolved into a second generation family-owned furniture retail business. Son Alejandro Macias and daughter Minerva Macias-Maestas, both graduates of Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business have taken the reigns of the company and are driving it’s progress ever forward.
Del Sol Furniture’s mission is as clear today as it was at the company’s beginnings in 1997…
