C.W. ARD

C.W. Ard is the founder of Ard’s Appliance. Graduating from a business school in Sumter, SC he was recruited to work at a GE retailer, the local Appliance and TV Store. C.W. worked at the store beginning in 1961 for 17 years before opening Ard’s Appliance in 1978.

With GE behind him, C.W. took a leap of faith and opened Ard’s Appliance at the local shopping center. After four years, he purchased a piece of property and built the store that remains a local staple in the community today. C.W. and Peggy have built Ard’s Appliance based on honesty, friendship and a commitment to customer service.
