About Ferrins

Here at Ferrins, we take pride in selling better quality name brand furniture to suit any furniture needs you may have.

We sell furniture right off of our floor for quick (in some cases) same day delivery or we can customize your furniture with special orders to get exactly what you want. In fact, over 80% of our upholstery business are in special orders. Our knowledgeable sales staff will walk you through all of the steps to make sure every step goes smoothly.

Our building, originally built in 1913 as the Belmont Hotel, has 5 floors of furniture. In fact, our top two floors are still set up as individual “room-like” settings to give a better representation of what a vignette might look in your home.
We have strong ties to the furniture industry in regards to both our building and our family. Our building, located in beautiful downtown Great Falls, has a rich history of furniture as Ferrins is actually the 3rd furniture store to occupy the building after it became a hotel. Our family has been in the furniture business for over 118 years and 5 generations. This ensures peace of mind that you will receive professional, individualized help when shopping for furniture needs.
