Courtesy Home Furnishings now known as Self Service Furniture Warehouse

Courtesy Home Furnishings, a longtime fixture in La Grande’s east end, has taken on a new name, and a new way of doing business.

But it’s staying in the Dowdy family. 

On May 1, the store at 2216 Adams Ave. changed its name to Self Service Furniture Warehouse, operated by Trevor Dowdy and his sister Jessica Dowdy. They’re the son and daughter of Ross Dowdy, who opened Courtesy in La Grande in 1982 — and they’re buying the store from him.

“He’s retired, so it’s second generation,” said Trevor Dowdy, a 19-year-old, 2013 graduate of Asotin High School in Asotin, Wash. “I grew up around this and I love doing it. I learned everything from my dad, so instead of going to college I went into the family business.”

Dowdy said the store continues to carry a full line of household furnishings, everything from mattresses and bedroom sets to living room and dining room ensembles.  The biggest difference, he said, is that Courtesy’s rent-to-own financing option is no more. Financing is still available, but it isn’t in-house.
