ABOUT AARON'S, INC

Our History Our History

Headquartered in Atlanta, Aaron’s, Inc. is a leader in the lease ownership of name brand furniture, consumer electronics and home appliances through its 1,600+ Company-operated and franchised stores in 47 states and Canada. Aaron’s was founded in 1955 and has been publicly traded since 1982. Charlie Loudermilk, Aaron’s founder, developed a unique lease-to-own model with a vision to fill a void for the underserved customer by providing them the best deal on the highest quality products. Aaron’s services are available to approximately 40-50 percent of the U.S. population who make less than $50,000 annual household income through multiple channels.

 

That same spirit of innovation led Aaron’s to expand its reach with Progressive Leasing, a leading virtual lease-to-own company that provides lease-purchase solutions through approximately 20,000 retail locations in 46 states.
