Founded by two brothers, Frank A. and Henry G. “Rock” Capperella in 1952 as a television and appliance retailer and service provider, Capperella’s first store was located on Bishop Street in downtown Bellefonte. In 1955, Capperella Brothers, as it was known, began selling home furnishings. In 1957 the brothers built a new building outside of town, between Bellefonte and Milesburg. The larger showroom allowed for new merchandise, including bedding and flooring. After an expansion during the 1970’s and another in the early 90’s, this location is now nearly 40,000 square feet. In 1997 Capperella’s opened our second location in Lewistown, PA. Following in the footsteps of Jonas and Jane Kauffman, owners of Kauffman’s Music and Furniture (an 80 year Lewistown tradition), Capperella’s moved into their former location in downtown Lewistown. Now in the second generation, the brother and sister team of Dave Capperella and Carol Capperella continue the tradition and commitment to provide central Pennsylvania with the finest selection of home furnishings, bedding, flooring, and services at the best possible prices.
