TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Our names are Bernard Reed and Maxwell Wickman, the former owners of Reeds Furniture.
We both have been in Thousand Oaks since 1960. Between us both, we have four boys, five grandchildren and two great grandchildren, all of which live in our hometown.
We have big discounts all the time throughout the year and we will meet or beat any internet prices.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH WICKMANS?
Bernard has been in the furniture business for over 60 years and Maxwell has been involved for 20 years; it’s a wonderful type of business. Everyone will one day need furniture. We’re hands on with each and every customer that walks through our doors.
WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT WORKING IN THE STORE?
We’re not just a business; we’re a family. Most of our employees have been with us from six years up to forty years, with a few newcomers to our family. Our staff is truly one of a kind; each one is special, talented, smart and they are well informed about our products and what will look and work best for our customers. We are so proud of our team.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF FURNITURE?
Every square foot of our store has the most updated and eclectic type of style that will make each home look beautiful.
If you were to ask Maxwell, the best piece of furniture would be the most unusual, different and unique pieces. Believe me, this store carries them.
In every market, the buying team looks and finds as many as one can anywhere in the world. Like I said, on both sides it’s a treasure hunt.
HAVE YOU HAD ANY INTERESTING SALES/CUSTOMERS?
In fact, we have had some of the most talented actors interested by our furniture and have included pieces to the studios for their sets. You could find a lot of our furniture in some of your favorite TV shows.
We have countless designers that shop in our store for their clients. That says a lot.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY MADE AT THE STORE?
All I can say, is that our family and our products from our store is the best around.
The only way you’ll agree with them is to check it out for yourselves.
Remember to wear comfortable shoes; there’s lots of walking and looking. This store has too many things to find with just one walk through. It’s going to take several times around with the help of our staff, if needed, to find your treasure.
WHY AGOURA HILLS? WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?
We picked Agoura Hills because we feel it’s a perfect location for all. We service customers past Santa Monica all the way to Long Beach and beyond. It’s right off the 101 freeway in between Chesbro and Kanan, on the same side of Wood Ranch. After a long day of shopping, it’s a great place to unwind.
