Sidney Finnicum's Closing After 25 Years


LaVonne Scotson

After 25 years providing furniture, appliances and exceptional service, the Sidney Finnicum's Furniture store is closing its doors.

A series of events made closing the store a logical event. Finnicum's lost their warehouse space, which was critical due to the volume of merchandise they carry. About the same time, some local individuals approached them about purchasing the building. The price was negotiated and the deal made. They are happy that they were selling to people who will continue to service the community with a retail business.

Finnicum's Furniture (Gamble's) was started in Culbertson in 1945 by the current owners' grandparents, and managed by their father, Bernie Finnicum. They gradually expanded to Poplar, Williston and Sidney. For the past 17 years, the stores have been run by the four Finnicum siblings: Paul, Bernie (Butch), William (Bill) and LaVonne Scotson. Finnicum's Furniture was named the Montana Family Business Of The Year in 2006.

The Poplar store burned down many years ago and the Williston store was sold two years ago. With the sale of the Sidney store, Finnicum's is returning to its roots in Culbertson where they will continue to offer furniture, flooring, hardware, sporting goods, appliances, housewares and much more.

LaVonne Scotson has been the Sidney store manager since it opened. While she won't miss the 70 mile commute six days a week in all kinds of weather, she will miss all her customers and friends she has made over the years. "The Sidney business has been great," she said. "We want to thank all our customers for their loyalty for the past 25 years."

Finnicum's will close Saturday, June 1. All the inventory, except appliances and mattresses, is now at huge discounts of 40 to 75% off. With the warehouse being emptied, lots of merchandise is being brought out, so the selection is still good. Stop in today and purchase that furniture or wall decor you've been wanting and take advantage of the savings.
