Our History

Altmeyer History

Dear Friends,

Back in 1941, my Grandfather, the late George Altmeyer, managed to save $4,000 which he used to establish the very first Altmeyer Home Store in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, in a small basement room. This was no easy task considering he didn't have the benefit of a high school education and also had a young family. Times were tough, but through perseverance and long hours, the store caught on and soon he moved it to the main street of Fourth Avenue.

Eventually he was joined by his son, Rod Altmeyer, Sr., and the chain has grown to 11 stores serving Pennsylvania residents. Now with 75 years of knowledge in the textile market, Altmeyer's Bed, Bath & Home is able to offer incredible products at incredible prices, something my Grandfather insisted on from the very beginning.

We offer an amazing selection of bedding, home decor, kitchen linens, bathroom accessories, and window treatments. So buy with confidence - our prices are truly sensational and we offer unbeatable service!

Best Regards,

Robert Altmeyer
