Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of the early 1900s, Ching Sing Wo opened a general merchandise store in Honolulu that successfully grew and later transformed into a furniture store. More than a century since its establishment, and renamed C. S. Wo & Sons Ltd., this thriving family-run business—parent company to C. S. Wo, HomeWorld Furniture, SlumberWorld, Ashley HomeStore and Red Knot—is a powerhouse in retail furniture.
