Big Sandy Superstore
Big Sandy Superstore is a home furnishings “superstore” carrying the very best in appliances, electronics, furniture, mattresses and home décor. We are three generations strong, founded in 1953 by Robert W. Van Hoose Sr., who was fresh out of the Air Force at the time. With a $1000 loan from his wife, Lorna, in hand he opened his first store.
What’s in a name?
The Big Sandy name is a tribute to this vital 1900’s resource of the logging industry in Ashland, Kentucky. Mr. Van Hoose operated his business under a very basic principle: giving customers the best possible value for the money spent and, if there was ever a problem, following the Golden Rule. This simple formula has stood the test of time as Big Sandy has grown and is led today by his son, CEO Robert W. Van Hoose Jr. and his two sons, Trey and Stephen.
