Gord Seblefski

THERE’S HISTORY IN A NAME
40+ YEARS - 7 STORES - 3 GENERATIONS...
AND COUNTING!
(STORY PUBLISHED IN LOCAL PAPER IN 2008)

After just 2 years Gord’s Furniture & Sleep Centre may still be getting known as a local retailer but they’re not exactly new to local business.

In fact, Gord Seblefski and his family have been serving the community for over 40 years. Gord’s grandparents, Bill & Clara Ebbing opened Ebbing Home Hardware in Moorefield in 1965. They later retired selling the business which is now known as Harron’s Rona Building Centre.

Gord’s parents, Ken & Renate Seblefski opened K&R Supplies in Moorefield in1972. This eventually lead to the opening of Forget me not Flowers & Gifts in 1982 which they operated until 2000 in Moorefield, Elmira, and St. Jacobs. During this time they did over 1400 weddings, while also opening the Nearly New Centre in 1990. They operated this store in Millbank for quite some time until recently moving to Linwood where they operate today serving much of the Mennonite community.

After learning much about business and customer service from watching and helping his family, Gord quickly became the manager of a major electronics store in Kitchener in the late 80’s after attending Norwell Secondary School in Palmerston. He held several other service & sales related positions through the years as well as spending over a decade as a truck driver where he learned much about the delivery & shipping industry.

In 2003 Gord decided to open his own store on a part time basis. He opened Nearly New Two in Milverton which was basically a spinoff of his parent’s store. He soon left his day job with Fed Ex to open Just Like New in 2005, a used furniture store in Listowel. Incidentally Gord also worked for Andrew Malcolm Furniture here in Listowel in his earlier years as well. Then in 2006 after much research he decided to drop the used end and go all new, opening Gord’s Furniture & Sleep Centre and expanding to 7000 sq. ft. He has since moved to Listowel with his wife Mary Lou and 5 year old daughter Delaney. His sister Charlene is also in business, recently taking over the Out to Lunch restaurant in Palmerston. They have been extremely busy since reopening and now Charlene and her husband Stan Klasen have plans to open an ice cream parlour there as well. Gord feels this background story is a good idea because people like to know who they’re dealing with, and it makes an interesting connect the dots piece. When asked if he had any thoughts to add or anything he wanted potential customers to know, he replied “Just that we’re trying to offer people an above average product at a below average price, and then accompany that with the courtesy and service.
