Marvin & Toni Weyer started Marvin & Toni's Bargain Barn with the idea that working folks needed a place to buy quality home furnishings at reasonable prices. In 1984, the Weyer's converted a pole barn located behind their house just outside Ferdinand, IN to a rustic, warehouse style furniture showroom. Within 6 months, the small barn could no longer house their burgeoning business. They moved into their current Ferdinand showroom with approximately 6,000 square feet of showroom space. Over the next 15 years, Marvin & Toni's Bargain Barn came to be known as a furniture store with quality home furnishings at discount prices. Their product line focused on local and American manufacturers priced as a value to their hard working customers. In 2000, they doubled the size of their Ferdinand location to 12,000 square feet to better showcase their quality goods.
