About Us


A young second-generation retailer who recently graduated from college had a vision of a retail environment: here shoppers would experience a line of top quality home appliances and electronics at low prices, but without sacrificing the personal attention lacking in most stores while receiving a level of customer service nonexistent in many retailers of the period. So in 1983, the very first King's retail store opened its doors. In 1986, the Great Buys Plus Corporation was founded to expand by creating partnerships with other retailers that were of a like mind and shared this vision. Growth in surrounding markets flourished—which all began from the partnership of a locally owned retailer with Great Buys Plus.

From humble beginnings, Great Buys Plus has grown from one small store to 44 locations spanning the Midwest offering a wide selection of appliances, electronics, furniture, and beddings at guaranteed low prices in their respective market area. The assortment of locally owned and community-oriented store owners have combined their resources and command the purchasing power as great as most of the national Big Box stores they compete with daily. This compelling combination of local ownership and efficiency equates to a big win for their customers.

Your local King's Great Buys Plus offers a compelling combination of value, featuring top branded appliances, electronics, furniture, and mattresses—brands that you know and trust. We offer Sony, Denon, Bose, Klipsch, Samsung, LG, Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, Bosch, Thermador, Beko, Frigidaire, Electrolux, Serta, Tempurpedic, Bellagio, Sealy, Luxe Motion, Klaussner, Catnapper, and many more! All items come with KING'S LOW PRICE GUARANTEE!

In early 2019, King's launched a rebranded website with a fully automated cart system to act as a real store, at the fingertips of the customer. We are moving into the direction of allowing modern technology to conduct our business and make our products more accessible than ever. Our hope with this new website is to always be available and seeing to the needs of our customers under all circumstances—regardless of the time, day, and location.

We have six local stores within our Tri-State. To find one near you, click here.
