A Few Words About

About Us

We are a family run business for over 95 years

Fosters for Furniture

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,  value for money and excellent customer service have remained consistent for three 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 and budget, whether you are looking for classic traditional pieces or are going for a more modern and 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.

In 2004 I took over the running of the business from my father Martin as he had from my grandfather. As a family we have been serving Rotherham and South Yorkshire since 1926, and is something we will continue to do for many years to come.  The business is not just a store, staff and customers,  it’s all part of our family and is something we are very proud off and a very unique achievement in this day and age.
