The Manchester Homecoming Festival Committee is proud to announce Shubert Design Furniture as its 2018 Manchester Business of the Year.
Owners Jim and Linda Shubert have been in business in Manchester since 1983, providing affordable, quality furniture and interior design expertise. Over the years, their clients have included homeowners, companies, movie stars and even politicians all over the country and internationally.
In addition to sponsoring concerts in Schroeder Park, Jim is on the board of directors for the Gary Sinise Foundation, which constructs specially adapted smart homes for America’s severely wounded veterans and first responders through its R.I.S.E. program [Restoring Independence, Supporting Empowerment]. Not only is Jim on the board, but Shubert Design Furniture donates the furniture for the homes. By the end of 2018, 66 homes across the country will be completed or under construction. Locally, there are smart homes in Wildwood, Arnold and Ballwin. Jim was the driving force behind the home recently built for Ballwin Police Officer Michael Flamion, which was the first home the foundation had built for a first responder.
Jim and Linda have three grown children with professional careers, and they enjoy boating, fishing and reading in their spare time. Jim believes in quietly doing things unconditionally and without fanfare. They work together to continue their successful business and to donate their time and talents to benefit the community. The city of Manchester and the Manchester Homecoming Festival Committee thank Shubert Design Furniture and Jim and Linda Shubert for their contributions to those in need.
