Van Dyk Furnishers established itself in February 1974 when Joe & Ali Van Dyk purchased the existing business of Rex Mora Furnishers, trading out of what is now the United Video store in Princes Street, Putaruru, with a total staff of three.

Isles & Burgess, the only other furnishing store in town, closed its doors in 1975. The company purchased the building in Duke Street (currently occupied by Low Bucks, Van Dyks' discount and second-hand goods store), and relocated and expanded its furniture department.

Through the early 1980s the company introduced Mobile Curtain and Carpet Showcase vans to the South Waikato, and added a third store in Duke Street to expand the floor covering division.
On 1 April 1986 the three brothers, Henry, John and Leighton, purchased the business from their parents.

Continued expansion of the company required more floor space or additional outlets in surrounding towns. The chosen strategy was to develop the most modern and largest furnishing showroom outside of the main centres.

In 1988 the company commenced negotiations to purchase the former Elders Pastoral building which had remained vacant for some time. Once the site was secured, the adjoining properties were also purchased for future expansion. After an extensive refit, Stage I of the complex opened in March 1989 for the floor covering and textile divisions.

Stage II of the complex was constructed during 1990 after the company purchased the electrical appliance business of Ian Rolls Ltd, which had a trading history of 35 years.
During the early 1990s the company consolidated its position as the leading furnishing and appliance store in the South Waikato and commenced planning for the third and largest stage of the development – a 15000 square foot extension which would double the total floor area.

October 26 1994 was the official opening of the final stage of the complex by Mayor Gordon Blake, a day that will be etched in the company's history forever. Hundreds of people from near and far had turned up to help celebrate the occasion, and what an occasion it was.
"Forty years marks a special occasion for our family our loyal employees and our customers" says Daniel Van Dyk. "It's a challenge to compete with National Chains in the markets we serve and we are extremely grateful for the continued support from our local communities.
