Our History...


Begun in 1947 by Ed and Mary Burkey , Burkeys' Furniture and Carpeting's first location was on North Centre Street in downtown Cumberland, Maryland.


In 1955, the business moved to the newly-expanding Cumberland suburb of LaVale.


Burkeys' Furniture and Carpeting relocated to 900 National Highway, LaVale, Maryland, where the store expanded in 1965 and again in 1975 to its current 20,000+ square feet.


The adjacent property was purchase in the 1980's for additional needed warehouse space and more parking spaces for the ever-growing business.


John Burkey took over the Management of the Family-owned and operated business in 1979 and has been at the helm ever since. And until her 91st birthday in June, 2016, customers were always warmly welcomed by Mary Burkey. She has recently retired from active participation, but is consulted frequently in her role as advisor.
