About Us

In 1947, shortly after proudly serving the United States in World War II, Albert Thornton with his wife, Lorine, opened a hardware and appliance store in Henning, TN.  Growing up during the Great Depression and living through the Second World War, they knew the value of hard work and customer service.  A few years later the family business moved to Ripley, TN where it evolved as the sporting goods, firearms, furniture and appliance retailer still proudly serving our community today!

Following in the footsteps of his father, in 1992, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thornton, Micky, purchased a well established furniture and appliance business in Covington, TN from its retiring owner.  Thornton’s A.T. & F. (appliances, televisions and furniture) was born!  Raised in the home furnishings world, he knew how to serve his new community.

At Thornton's we offer easy financing (we carry many of our own accounts).  We proudly offer the most comprehensive show floor in the area.  We carry the most extensive collection of furniture, appliances, bedding, and electronics found anywhere in Tipton County.  We offer professional delivery and installation of most items, and we will even haul off your used furniture when we deliver your new home furnishings!

At Thornton’s our goal is to help you find everything you want to furnish and decorate your home exactly how you imagine it.  If you miss the kindhearted service of yesteryear, then it’s time to visit family owned and family oriented Thornton’s in Ripley and Covington!
