Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 334-281-6400 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Bishop-Parker Furniture Co. was founded in 1923 by two young men, M.B. Bishop and C.D. Parker. The store’s first home was on Monroe Street in downtown Montgomery, AL . Although both men had years of furniture business experience already, the fledgling business had a humble beginning and the Great Depression was looming around the corner. Through hard work and determination, our founders not only survived but grew the store and, in 1933, moved to a much larger, finer location on Commerce Street. Our home for nearly 50 years, thousands of our past and current customers fondly remember this site as where they purchased their first or favorite home furnishings. That building is now well known as the entrance to the popular downtown Alley Station.

In any extended family, there are sure to be many great moments and memories involving a cast of colorful characters. After 95 years, hundreds of employees and thousands of customers, we have quite a few ourselves! We often joke someone could write an entertaining book about all our collective experiences. But even though we at Bishop-Parker are steeped in tradition, we certainly do not live in the past. We are more inspired than ever to bring you the most up-to-date style furnishings – at the best price – backed up with quality service only a multi-generational, local business can provide.
