Worthley's Home Appliance began as Dugan's Appliance over 40 years ago in 1963. Mr. Virgil Dugan served the appliance needs of Tomball for nearly 20 years before selling the business to Gary Worthley in 1980. Under Mr. Worthley's ownership, the store was renamed Worthley's TV and Appliance and continued to meet the needs of Tomball and the surrounding area. In 2005, the store once again changed hands when ownership was transferred to long time friend and store manager Eric Lunsford. The name was changed to Worthley's Home Appliance, since they no longer sold televisions, choosing to focus on appliances.
A lot has changed since Mr. Dugan opened his doors all those years ago. The community has grown, however, the commitment to personal service has remained a tradition at Worthley's.
