The first Ashley HomeStore opened in Anchorage, Alaska in 1997. Since then, the company has become the #1 home furniture retailer in North America. It has stores located throughout the United States, Canada, Chile, Mexico, Central America, Japan, Kazakhstan, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bangladesh.

Though many Ashley HomeStores are independently owned and operated, all of the furniture sold is manufactured by Ashley. The 100th HomeStore store opened in 2003, the 200th in 2005. It became the fastest-growing furniture chain and top selling furniture brand worldwide in 2006 and open its 300th store in 2007.

At the time when Jennifer Convertibles filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July 2010, Ashley was listed as having a $1.4 million claim against Jennifer. When Jennifer emerged from bankruptcy in February 2011, it controlled six Ashley Homestores in the New York City area.

In February 2014, Ashley HomeStore opened its 500th HomeStore in Longview, Texas. As of November 2017 there are over 750 Ashley HomeStore locations across the globe.

In April 2015, Ashley HomeStore made its first incursion in South America by opening its first store in Punta Arenas, Chile.
