Lebakkens is a dynamic company that was founded on the simple premise of providing each customer with the best possible products, at the best possible rates and with the best possible service. We truly believe our success as a company is directly tied to our success in staying true to our founding premise.
This statement has three distinct parts:
We Satisfy Needs: Most of the products that we provide
satisfy basic home needs.
Quality: We strive to stock only quality products.
Service: Outstanding customer service is our number one objective.
In 1975, Loren Lebakken opened a Curtis Mathes Showroom in Rochester, Minnesota, at the time it was more retail than Rent-To-Own and consisted solely of electronics in its product line.
In 1978, Rochester was devastated by a flood and the store was moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin. It was shortly after the move that the realization was made that the business to be in was Rent-To-Own. The Curtis Mathes line was dropped in favor of a broader and more diversified product line. More stores were soon to follow, and currently there are 11 different stores open in Wisconsin with more stores planned for the future.
