It's Our Experience That Sets Us Above The Rest!
Family owned and operated since 1955, Middleton’s Mark Twain Center, Inc. was originally Calaveras Mercantile bought by Hank and Matilda Middleton in 1955. Starting as a furniture, feed, fabric, and appliance business in the original 1500-sq-ft location proved to not meet the needs of the community. As Hank and Matilda were raising their young family and seeing the potential growth and needs of Calaveras County, they purchased acres of land in 1960 just on the edge of town. They built and developed the first shopping center in the county. Hank anchored his 27,000 sq. ft. furniture, appliance, hardware, and gift shop with a local bank and grocery store.
Fast forward to 1977 with youngest son Bob graduating college with a BS in Business. Taking over the family business, Bob also saw the needs of the community he was raised in and joined a National Buying Group for Middleton’s in 1981. Being a member of BrandSource gives Middleton’s the ability to serve their customers with name brand furniture, mattresses, appliances, and televisions such as La–Z–Boy, Ashley, Simmons, Tempur–Pedic, GE, Electrolux, Speed Queen, Frigidaire, Samsung TVs and also Hoover and Simplicity vacuums at competitive prices with the bonus of expert customer service that an independent retailer can offer.
To this day, this 3rd Generation Family Business is a viable part of the entire community with involvement in schools, service clubs, and scholarships to high schools, and belongs to the local business association. Middleton’s was also chosen Business of the Year in 2010 by the Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce.
After over 65 years in business, Middleton’s wants to invite all new and old customers to check out all that we offer for your household needs in the furniture, appliance, mattress, and TV department.
