about the brand

With the opening of our first store in Kenora, Ontario in 1986, the Dufresne brand was the catalyst for the entire TDG business. Over our 36-year history, we have come to define Dufresne Furniture & Appliances as much more.

Our goal is to create destinations for life’s most meaningful shared moments. Yet our unrelenting passion for hands-on service, an exceptional shopping experience, and strong community relationships set us apart!

As a proudly Canadian brand, we believe in supporting and caring for our teams, guests, and communities right across this great country.

As the foundation for the Dufresne Retail Solutions Group (dRSG), we help other independent retailers compete in their communities.

As a supply partner for The North West Company, we provide affordable options to help families across Northern Canada furnish and love their homes.

To protect our environment and support our local economies, we’re working towards 50% of the furniture, mattresses, and appliances we offer to be made in Canada.

With our retail stores across Manitoba, Ontario, and into Saskatchewan, we’ve provided training and jobs for 1000s of team members and supported dozens of charities to Make Life Better for all.

Yet, we are just getting started! We can’t wait to show you how we’re growing to serve you better today and into the future.
