Weekends Only Logo

From 1937 to Today. The Phillips family has been in the St. Louis furniture market since Phillips Mercantile opened downtown in 1937. They owned several other area furniture stores in the following decades, so it was no surprise when Tom and Dave Phillips decided to continue the family business with Weekends Only. The first Weekends Only opened its doors in 1997, which led to the 5 stores open in the St. Louis area today. We opened a store in Castleton, Indiana, in May 2015, and we plan to open a new store on the south side of Indianapolis in 2018. We entered the online shopping world in 2013 with an e-commerce site, making all deliverable items available any day of the week. With the consistent sales growth we see each year, we are proud to hold a place in Furniture Today’s list of Top 100 U.S. Furniture Stores.
