Unger’s started selling furniture and appliances back in the early 1950's when Mr. John K. Unger, decided he had a disliking for farming. At the time he decided to start a career in appliance sales.

Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley was a rural area and farms were starting to get electricity. His business plan was to follow the new power lines, offering wringer washers to replace washboards and refrigerators and freezers to replace iceboxes.

Four more stores followed quickly: Abbotsford, Langley, Mission and White Rock. In April 1973, the business was finally centralized to one store in Abbotsford and has served the Central Fraser Valley ever since.

 

about-trucks

Jim Watkins was a delivery driver and learned the business from the ground up. In 1973 Jim was given the opportunity to purchase the business and has been the principal owner of Unger Appliance and furniture ever since. The store has been in the family for generations and serving the Abbotsford area for many more generations. The world has changed considerably in the years since but you can still visit Unger’s and get that small town service so rare in our world of box stores.
