Klaussner to close last company-owned retail store
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Klaussner Home Furnishings said it will close its last company-owned Klaussner Home Store here after losing its lease. Planned Furniture Promotions was hired to conduct the store closing sale at the 26,000-square-foot showroom in a shopping center on West Wendover Avenue near Interstate 40. The sale is expected to begin next week and run through Oct. 15, said Len Burke, Klaussner’s vice president of marketing. He would not disclose projected sales. “We chose to exit retail back in 2007 and that left us with one Home store we have operated since that time,” Burke said. “The store has been a great test store for product and has served us well,” Burke said, but he added that when the landlord exercised its option on the space, Klaussner decided not to relocate. One Klaussner Home Store licensed showroom continues to operate in Raleigh, N.C.
