STEUBENVILLE — The 16-room showrooms at Hauser’s Furniture and Carpeting on Sunset Boulevard have a rich history rooted in the days when salesmen went door to door to sell their merchandise.
Current owner Marty Hauser is quick to point to the contributions from his father, Paul Hauser, and Uncle Sid Hauser who worked for the Office of Consolidated Home Equipment based in Pittsburgh.
“In those days my father and uncle were part of a group of salesmen who would canvass an area. For example they would go to Mingo Junction and literally walk door to door selling sheets, blankets, pots, pans and towels and other things of that nature. There was a warehouse here in Steubenville but they essentially worked out of the warehouse and spent their days selling door to door,” cited Hauser.
“It was very much like the milk or bread delivery men and the Fuller Brush Co. salesmen. They all worked different territories going door to door,” he said.
“In those days the customers would pay 25 cents or 50 cents a week on their accounts. That same philosophy was carried into the store when my father and uncle started the first Hauser’s store. We have a customer account program here for approximately 800 customers. We do offer an extra discount if someone pays cash for a purchase, but we do our own financing,” noted Hauser.
“Unfortunately, my Uncle Sid died young from lung cancer. My father and uncle had purchased the property on Sunset Boulevard and started their store in 1950. In later years my father would add more showrooms, so we now have 16 total showrooms including four rooms dedicated to flooring,” recalled Hauser.
“We offer every type of flooring. We have carpet by Shaw, Mohawk, Aladdin by Mohawk, Beaulieu Asa, Coronet and Hollytex. Our wood flooring includes Certified, Mohawk and Shaw products. And we offer Metroflor and Mohawk vinyl tile and planks. Our laminate products are from Alloc, Berry and Quick Step and we have ceramic floor treatments from Interceramic and Lint. Our showroom also has samples of sheet vinyl from Tarkett and Armstrong,” related Hauser.
“I started working in the store when I was 11 years old. I enjoyed being in the store and I still enjoy coming here today. I like talking to the customers and making them happy,” Hauser pointed out.
“I took over the store after I returned from college in 1976. It was going to be a temporary move on my part. I had met my future wife, Donna, and I thought we would stay here and build a nest egg and then move on. But life can change. I renewed friendships and made new friends and I got involved in the community. I love this city and enjoyed living here and we are just a short distance from Pittsburgh, which is also a great city,” commented Hauser.
“My wife Donna is the treasurer and secretary and we have nine employees working here. Our customers are the most important people to walk through our doors. We make everyone feel welcome during their visit and purchase and after we have delivered their item,” stated Hauser.
“So we stayed in Steubenville and continued to build the store. And I continue to enjoy being here. We stay on top of the latest trends to offer the best value and service. Sometimes a name brand isn’t the best value. We look at quality and price,” Hauser noted.
“And for us, service is critical. If there is a problem we will take care of it. We have a service department and that is critical. I have learned over the years that the big box store experience isn’t always a pleasant experience.
When someone comes in here we don’t push them. We are always available to answer questions and we will satisfy their needs. But we want our customers to feel relaxed and be able to take their time to look around,” explained Hauser.
“Hauser’s Furniture & Carpeting has been proudly serving the Ohio Valley since our opening.

We offer a number of different furniture lines, including AICO by Amini, Ashley, Anthony, Millenium by Ashley, Craftmaster, Carolina Furniture, Hoover, Tempur-pedic, Vaughan-Bassett, Woodcrest and many, many more,” stated Hauser.
“We also offer appliances. Customers can look through our catalog to find the best fit for their needs. We have Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Philips and Sony televisions. And our appliances are from Frigidaire, Crosley, General Electric and Samsung,” he said.
“Hauser’s Furniture and Carpeting is truly the place to shop for your home needs. We welcome visitors to stop in. Our store is open 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday – Friday, and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays,” said Hauser.
“I also urge people to look at our website at www.hausersfurniturestore.com to look at the different flooring, furniture and carpeting we have available,” said Hauser.
“Our roots are in Steubenville. From the days when my father and uncle went door to door through the years where we have expanded our store to what it is today we have grown with Steubenville,” Hauser commented.
