Company Founder (deceased)
Albert’s, Inc. shares a long standing history and tradition. Mr. Albert Rothbart started Albert’s Loan Office in Johnson City, Tennessee in the 1920’s and operated it for nearly 50 years until he passed away in the early 1970’s.
At that time, his daughter, Harriet R., purchased the business and, his son-in-law, Rufus Z. Luster operated the business. Over the next 20 + years, Mr. and Mrs. Luster grew the business into three locations.
