The company opened its 100,000 square foot Dallas showroom and design studio in 1973 and its 70,000 square foot Fort Worth showroom and design studio in 1987. Company namesake Don Gabbert founded Gabberts in the 1940s in Minneapolis.

The company's flagship store is a 150,000 square foot retail showroom/headquarters facility located in the Twin Cities suburb of Edina. The company over the last 10 years has been named "Best Home Furnishings Retailer in America" by House Beautiful magazine, "Best Tried and True Interiors Store" by D Home magazine and "Best Furniture Store" by Fort Worth, Texas magazine.
