Richard’s of Toto: Our Shop Departments
At Richard’s of Toto, our everyday merchandise is often times the icing on the shopping cake. Where a customer may make a trip specifically to find value in one of our key departments, they may find a pleasant little bonus on an item that they may use every single day. During the course of our business we find and offer unbelievable deals on the kinds of products found in every single home. Cookware, bathroom supplies, cleaning products, and tons… literally-tons of other products and all of them sold well below their retail value!
As with all of our products, our general merchandise are not returned items. These are not shelf-pulls. These are first run, quality merchandise and much of it is from national best selling brands. They are, in short, just the kind of products that we can feel proud to offer to our customers. And more often then not, they are the bargains that our customers will boast to their friends about finding.
The only thing ‘common’ about our everyday merchandise is the fact that they may be found in most homes, and everything else about them – their value and their quality are quite extraordinary. When you find yourself at Richard’s of Toto, make the time to look at our General Merchandise, you’ll probably find enough value there to make your entire day worth while… and that’s without yet visiting The Toto Cafe!
A couple of years ago we decided to get into the furniture game, and the more we did it, the more we realized just how good a fit it is with what we do. Simply put, we sell top quality first-run furniture from industry leading manufacturers well blow the suggested retail price. These are the same pieces you’ll find in bigger household and furniture stores, but the only difference is that you are not paying so much!
How is it we can sell name brand furniture for less than furniture stores? Because we are not a furniture store, that’s why. Furniture is just one of our departments; as a result we can sell a name brand dinette set for less than the target price of a store that sells only furniture.
We have found that customers who buy their furniture with us will ultimately send their friends and family here as well, and that’s because they understand a good deal when they see one.
Most people can’t wait to share that good deal with everyone around them, so come see for yourself – if you can’t try and share some great deals with the people in your life too!
GIFTS and DECORATIONS
One of the first and best-established ways in which Richard’s of Toto stood apart from other stores was the wide selection of unique gift and decorative items we offer. We have given entire sections of shelving over to themes such as safari, nautical, western, apple, and more. Anyone who carry’s a decorative theme throughout their bathrooms, kitchens, or living rooms are sure to find a unique accent here to add to their collections.
What might you find here? Aisle after aisle of every kind of knickknack imaginable: cookie jars, scented candles, piggy banks, statues, clocks, picture frames, mirrors, eyeglass holders, potpourri burners, lunch boxes, scrap books…just about any manner of bric-a-brac you can think of. Most of them you cannot find anywhere else and all of them sold at incredible discounts.
We are confident that we sell special items and great prices, but we don’t ask you to take that on face value. Rather, we invite new customers to see for themselves why it is that Richard’s of Toto has been one of Indiana’s best kept secrets for over 20 years!
Hopefully, we will make a believer out of you too.
Every season, we stock our shelves and display stands with new silk and artificial flowers from all over the world. And every season customers from all over the Midwest come to take advantage of our industry low prices. Our purchasing philosophy of overruns and surpluses allow us to sell top quality merchandise below box store prices, and have led us to become one of the preferred stops for professional decorators, wedding planners, florists, as wells as discerning shoppers.
We are proud of what we have on offer in all of our departments and our floral selection is no different. If we are to offer the merchandise, then we will make sure they are worth the money and the trip. When we look for flowers we look for the same thing our customers do: Sturdy construction as well as full, realistic, beautiful arrangements.
We are a popular floral destination because we understand what the educated consumer is interested in, and we respect the fact that we are only one of many choices that they have. And every season our loyal customers remind us of what we do, and why.
We invite you to see for yourself all that Richard’s of Toto has to offer your and your seasonal projects!

Just as we are the place to go to get the decorations your house the rest of the year, it is doubly so for the Christmas season.
