Our Story

In 1922, Franz Julius Liipfert, who had been building cabinets for Randolph-Macon College in Boydton, VA, moved to Clarksville and started making furniture. His business was incorporated in 1926 and evolved into Clarksville Furniture & Flooring.


Many people in our community know Larry Kindley, Jr., who owned the business for 41 years. One day in 2021, Joe and Michelle Mitchell came into Clarksville Furniture & Flooring and placed a special order for outdoor furniture. Joe told Larry how much he loved Clarksville and that he planned to retire here but could never sit still in retirement.

Larry half-jokingly said that if Joe was interested in buying the store, he could make an offer. After he left, Joe called Larry and they got to talking. One thing led to another and Joe eventually purchased Clarksville Furniture & Flooring from Larry in 2022.

“I believe in Clarksville,” Joe said. “I plan to be here for the rest of my life and I want to see Clarksville and the entire southeastern Virginia region continue to blossom. When I think about how I was a customer one day and the owner not long after that, it’s very humbling. My family is very grateful for this opportunity and excited to serve this community.”
