Our History

Lacks, Since 1935

In 1914 at the young age of 13, a young boy named Sam Lack boarded the ‘Lusitania’ and began his lone voyage from Russia to the United States where he would join his father. Years later, as a young man, he would found the first Lacks store in McAllen, Texas. 1935 marked the beginning of what would one day become the most predominant furniture chain in South Texas.

Sam Lack

America’s love affair with automobiles during the 1930s and their growing accessibility convinced Sam Lack to create a specialty business selling auto parts in a modest building at the corner of Main and Beaumont in downtown McAllen. Under his watchful eye and with tireless support from his family, his business flourished. Only three years after opening, Mr. Lack built his second store in Edinburg, which was quickly followed by new stores in Mission and Weslaco.

The war years of the 1940s were hard on the U.S. economy, and auto parts were rationed along with food and gasoline. Determined to succeed, Lack expanded the stores’ product line by offering household appliances. As he added new products and opened stores across the Valley, Lack’s business transformed from a small auto parts chain into a full-scale furniture and appliance operation. 

In addition to working hard for the success of his business, Sam Lack believed in serving the community. He actively served with the McAllen United Fund, McAllen Civic Center Board, Drainage Advisory Board, McAllen Chamber of Commerce, and McAllen Rotary Club. 

Lacks Associated Valley Stores is Born

In 1949, Sam’s son-in-law Myles Aaronson began helping him run the family business. Myles later purchased the Weslaco store from Sam and began his own expansion program, called Lacks Associated Valley Stores, Inc. He continued to trade under the Lack family name. Aaronson purchased the Edinburg and Mission stores from Sam Lack and his son Stanley in 1990, and the company changed its name to Lacks Valley Stores, Ltd in 1995.

Lacks Brownsville Ribbon Cutting

Two years later, Sylvia and Myles' son Lee Aaronson, became the stores’ chief executive officer. The stores remain a family-owned business under the guidance of Lee Aaronson, Carolyn Aaronson, and Vicki Hutson.

Success in a Modern World

Today, Lacks Valley Stores, Ltd. (also known as “Lacks”) has ten outlets in south Texas from Laredo to Brownsville. Lacks Galleria in McAllen is the largest furniture store in South Texas with a staggering 140,000 square feet providing an unparalled assortment of furniture, appliances, electronics, mattresses, and decorative accessories. The company’s two newest stores in Alice and San Benito opened in 2011.

Sam Lack’s commitment to the community is a value that has always been a part of the Lacks family. Currently, Lacks donates to organizations that better the future of others, like The American Diabetes Association and The American Cancer Society, among many others.

Lacks ranks 70th in the top 100 retail furniture operations in the U.S. according to FurnitureToday, the furniture industry’s leading periodical.

 Lacks Valley Stores, Ltd. employs over 600 associates.

 The company celebrates its 82nd anniversary this year.
