Buddy's Home Furnishings

Private Retail Sales - Marketing Electronics 500 - 1,000 Employees

Over the last 50 years, Buddy’s has built our business one satisfied customer at a time. Buddy Bi-Rite, known today as Buddy’s Home Furnishings was founded in 1961 by Mr. Norman “Slat” Slatton, Sr. He had a dream to serve the demands of the growing Tampa Bay area. Today, Buddy’s is the largest independent “Rent to Own” dealer in the country with 130 locations nationwide and expanding aggressively in the Pacific Northwest!

Every customer is important to us, and we’ll prove it. We are dedicated to earning your trust and your business.

“When you need us, we are here for you!”

Buddy’s offers flexible payment options including weekly or monthly rental or lease purchase programs or up to six months same as cash financing. We also offer instant approval, so you can start enjoying your new merchandise sooner.


No Credit Needed

Regardless of past credit mistakes or history, our customer no longer has to purchase used goods, inferior products or “do without”. No Credit Needed means our customer does not have to put up with the credit hassles normally associated with finance companies, banks and departments stores.

On-The-Spot Approval

That’s right everyone is pre-approved for up to $2000 of purchasing power. When a customer wants something, he or she gets it the same day. Because we do not check credit reports, we’re usually able to approve a customer order in 30 minutes. This saves customer time and anxiety.

Free Delivery And Set-Up

Typically, the big box stores charge the customer for a product to be delivered and set-up and this ranges anywhere from $25 to $50 per product. Our customer never pays delivery or set-up fees, it’s part of our service.

Free Product Service And Loaner

Our customers have a “peace of mind” in knowing that we will provide free product repair during the term of the rental agreement. This benefit included parts and labor and a free “Loaner” product in many cases.

No Long-Term Obligation

The rental-purchase agreement is totally non-binding and our customer is never obligated to keep his or her rented product. Unlike a financed product, our customer remains “debt free” and there is no penalty for returning the product.

Money Back Guarantee

If our customer is dissatisfied with either our product or our service, within the first 72 hours after delivery he or she may return the product and receive a full refund – with no hassles.
