About Us


Fosters was founded in 1926 by Randal Rowland Foster on Effingham Street in Rotherham. In the 1960's the store moved to its present location having outgrown its original site, becoming a limited company at the same time. Today the company has grown into one of the largest independent furniture retailers in South Yorkshire. However, our original core values of offering the very best quality products, along with value for money and excellent customer service have remained consistent for four generations.

Our Effingham Street store boasts several large showrooms over two floors which are full of premium quality furniture and flooring. A visit to our store reveals a range of furniture and flooring that will suit any home, whether you are looking for classic, traditional pieces or are going for a more modern, minimalist look. Feel free to come in and browse through our showrooms and take advantage of the expert advice that our friendly, experienced staff have to offer.
