Richard Ross senior traveled through San Clemente while serving in the United States Navy. It was just a small Spanish Village by the Sea at the time, population around 500, but Richard made a mental note to return to beautiful San Clemente CA.
After a variety of successful business ventures, Richard Sr. and wife Alma along with their two sons, Richard and Dale, planted roots in San Clemente. In 1955, Richard Sr. built the building and opened the Second Hand Store in 1957 at 111 Calle De Los Molinos, in the area known today as the Los Molinos Business District.
In 1962 Alma and her sister Elsie opened a business called The Sleep Shop, where they sold mattresses and new furniture. This was located on El Camino Real at the top of Avenida Del Mar. After a few years The Sleep Shop was relocated next to the Second Hand Store at 109 Los Molinos
When Richard and Alma retired, their son Richard Jr. and his wife Nancy took over operation of the business, eventually expanding to include the building at 107 Los Molinos.
The employees were family… Richard’s brother Dale, and Richard & Nancy’s sons, John and Eric.
When Richard and Nancy retired, Richard’s brother Dale and his wife Mary became owners. They kept it a family business by employing their nephews as well as Mary’s sister Helen, to serve their customers.
They continued to serve San Clemente and the surrounding area, while emphasizing the shops ability to help customers recycle their things and think globally while shopping locally.
When Dale and Mary retired they passed on the business to their nephew Eric, and his wife Sophia, who are the 3rd generation! Expect to meet their children, Noah, Gavin and Jane as they continue the Ross Family tradition of making San Clemente a fun place to shop!
All the current Ross’ are striving to follow the family’s lead and vision for SC Furniture by providing quality, value, and excellent customer service each and every day!
Thinking back over this year and how the times have driven us to adapt, persevere, and survive makes us think of those that came before us… We are the third generation of the family to make this business our own. It was entrusted to us with great faith that we would overcome any challenges, and knowing it would make us stronger as a family for it. This year has been extraordinary, we have sacrificed time with family & friends to keep the business going and put down our own roots in the community… And as a result we have proven to ourselves, our children, and our family before us that we are capable and driven. We lead, and follow, by example. We know our kids are learning the value of hard work and determination. And we know our family is proud of our achievements.
So we end 2020 with a huge THANK YOU, to everyone that has supported us- but most of all to our families that built the business before us, for giving us this opportunity to spread our wings and continue to build this business for our own children. We are blessed to be part of something greater than ourselves… Our family is a legacy of love!
