'... No fancy prices'

By KELLEY MOHR Staff Writer Published:

With a wide selection of wood and color stains to choose from, Yoder's Oak & Cherry Furniture offers a complete line of high quality Amish-built hardwood furniture at affordable prices.

At Yoder's Oak & Cherry Furniture, 10 beautiful species of wood are transformed into stunning pieces of furniture, oftentimes made to order to suit the customer's exact choices.

"It's all handmade, solid built and built to last," said manager Marvin Yoder, who, in addition to working with dozens of local craftsmen, hand-builds much of the furniture with his father in a workshop behind the store.

The long list of available furniture includes desks, beds, benches, clocks, curios, jelly cabinets, cedar chests, entertainment centers, chairs, recliners, cabinets, dressers, tables, coat racks, jewelry boxes, canes, shelves, custom-made furniture and items for the bedroom, kitchen and dining room, to name a few.

"All come in your choice of wood, color and hardware," Yoder said.

Custom-ordered pieces are very popular at Yoder's Oak & Cherry Furniture, whether it's a change in measurements or designing a custom piece from the ground up.

Customers may look through the store's many furniture catalogs for inspiration and optional furniture choices when it comes to wood, stain, style and adornments.

Yoder's has examples of pieces they make, can make and that they've made before.

"There are always things that can be changed," said Yoder, noting that the store both delivers and ships items.

With an unofficial store motto of, "No fancy showroom, no fancy prices," furniture can also be purchased from the many pieces arraying the store's showroom.

With the holiday season in full swing, that showroom is stocked with a variety of wooden toys. These include handmade puzzles, ladders, toys, marble sets and other unique items.

Yoder's Oak & Cherry Furniture is located at 6018 County Road 77, located across the road from Heini's Cheese Chalet in Bunker Hill just north of Berlin.

Hours are Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The store may be contacted by next-day fax at 330-698-3200. Stop in for a free quote on bedrooms, dining rooms, occasional tables, media stands, home office, children's furniture and much more.
