Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 920-730-4477 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Van Vreede TV & Appliance was started in June, 1951 in a small shop on Main Street in Kimberly by Harvey & Lorraine Van Vreede on a part time basis. Upon the advent of television to the area, in February, 1952 the business was moved to Grand Avenue in Little Chute and operated on a full time basis. A full line of appliances was added to the existing radio and television sales and service.

In 1956 the entire operation moved into a larger building on Main Street right next to the Village Hall in Little Chute. It remained there until 1961, when a new building was erected at 1000 W. Main Street in Little Chute.

In 1973 Van Vreede's was incorporated and remains as such today.

In 1979 a new store was added in Menasha and another in Green Bay in 1983 at the present location.

In 1989, the Appleton store opened at the present location and furniture was added, first in Appleton and then in Green Bay.

In 1994, the Oshkosh store opened on Washburn Street. The Menasha store subsequently closed and then the Little Chute store closed shortly after that. Today, Van Vreede's consists of three locations: Appleton, Green Bay and Oshkosh with the Distribution Center in Appleton.

And the rest, as they say, is history!
