Aaron’s, Inc. is the leader in lease ownership and specialty retailing of office furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and electronics with more than 1,900 Company-operated and franchised stores in 48 states and Canada.

The Aaron’s Sales & Lease Ownership division is the largest and fastest growing division, serving credit-constrained consumers in need of basic home furnishings, appliances and electronics. The Woodhaven Furniture Industries Division manufactures the majority of furniture leased and sold by Aaron’s. Vertical integration allows the company to control quality, styling and cost, leading to superior customer service.
