BUSINESS: Swanson’s Fireplace and Patio

Swanson'sSwanson’s Fireplace and Patio
Shop is a part of Edmond history, one of the few remaining original stores in
downtown Edmond. Owners J.C. and Mary Alice Swanson have been in business for
over 20 years serving the metro area for various outdoor patio and fireplace

J.C. began working as a delivery
boy for Montgomery Furniture and worked his way up the ladder to become a sales
associate. In 1961, he and his wife Mary Alice bought the store and it became
Swanson’s Furniture.

Swanson’s is a family-owned and
operated business where J.C. and Mary Alice’s daughter, Beverly Hayden, works
with her parents to make the store a prominent local business. Beverly has
watched Edmond grow and change over the years and is glad that Swanson’s has
been here to see it.

spend time outdoors at home. It becomes part of their family. In a way, we
become a part of their family not just because they are purchasing furniture
but for the friendships that come with the process,” Beverly said. “We are
grateful for all of it.”

Swanson’s Fireplace and Patio
has had lasting relationships with its manufacturers and has partnered with
industry leaders. Many of the manufacturers Swanson’s works with have been in
business for over a hundred years. This speaks to their commitment in providing
customers with the best product. Swanson’s offers quality goods for patio
furniture and fireplaces, among other products. Many are made in the USA or
Mexico, representing brands that are close to home.

Customers experience excellent
customer service and a fun family atmosphere at Swanson’s. Purchases can be
bought off the floor or special ordered to the customer’s liking, and delivery
to the metro area is available free of charge. This trusted and upbeat shop
offers hands-on service throughout the entire furniture buying process.

Beverly remembers one of her
customers who has moved to four different houses over the years and has come to
Swanson’s every time to upgrade her outdoor furnishings—the customer considers
herself a repeat offender. Beverly believes that customers will frequently come
back to Swanson’s because they trust the quality of their store. “We are very
fortunate doing what we love,” Beverly said. “It’s a blessing and a fun
