When Elias Schewel, a Russian immigrant, began peddling household goods in a horse and buggy in 1897, he could hardly have imagined that his fledgling enterprise would have grown to 52 stores in three states.
Today the company he founded is owned and operated by his fourth generation descendants, Marc Schewel and Jack Schewel.
Thanks to our 600 dedicated employees, Schewels is able to continue the long tradition of bringing our customers the quality, service, and values that were the hallmark of our founder's early success.
One of our founder's ideas was to allow customers to pay for their purchases over a period of several months, and today, over 100 years later, Schewels offers a flexible credit plan to suit your budget. Schewels carries all accounts in-house, and you deal only with an experienced credit counselor on-site in each of our stores.
