Woodcrafters Water beds was opened in Paducah, KY in 1981 by O.H. Wooley. In 1981, Mr. Wooley hired his nephew, Tim Wilson, as a general manager. Tim worked in the West Paducah location until 1983. At this time, a second store was opened in Murray, KY. Tim managed this store while his wife, Donna, did clerical/bookkeeping duties for both locations.
Tim's brother, Greg Wilson, later came into the business as Floor and Sales Manager.
In 1987, Tim and Donna Wilson purchased the Murray location. The business grew from water beds to include conventional furniture. In 1989, brothers Tim and Greg became partners giving the store a new name - Woodcrafters Galleries.
After an expansion to a new and present location in 2001, Woodcrafters now has a 24,000 square ft. building to offer their customers name brand products at affordable prices.
From the Wilson's, we would like to express our gratitude to the thousands of customers we have had the opportunity to serve and to the ones we look forward to earning, a very sincere thank you.
-Tim, Donna and Greg
