Matt and Miller have owned Pierce & Parker since 2016, when they took over the business from Miller’s parents, Jack & Fran Pierce. Matt’s background is in Management Consulting, with degrees from Georgia Tech and Northwestern University. Miller has an Accounting background, with a degree from Samford University. They both love design and are thrilled to be continuing the family business. Their children, Will and Liza, can often be seen running around the store, as well as their shop-dog Charlie!
Jack & Fran started Pierce & Parker with friends in 1976 in Macon. The business moved to St. Simons in 1980, taking over the storefront of Harvey & Harriet’s Furniture. They grew the store while raising two daughters, becoming a fixture on Frederica Road for over 35 years. They are now happily retired, chasing grandkids and doing a lot of fishing.
