Historic Fainberg’s of Plymouth Announces Going-Out-Of-Business Sale

Store has been serving generations of Wyoming Valley, Pa., customers since 1906

PLYMOUTH, PA.  — Fainberg’s of Plymouth, a leading retailer of furniture, bedding and home accents serving customers in Pennsylvania’s Wyoming Valley for 107 years, is closing. A going out of business sale starting January 3rd will be held at 56 E. Main St. in Plymouth.

 The store is closing due to growing economic pressure and competitive challenges faced by the industry, according to owner Stanley Fainberg, who will be retiring from the furniture business at the completion of the going out of business sale. 

Fainberg’s of Plymouth traces its origins to 1890, when Max Fainberg, a young Lithuanian immigrant, settled in Wyoming Valley, a lush area along the Susquehanna River that was beginning to transition from an agricultural to an industrial economy. Hard working and intelligent, Fainberg quickly learned the language and customs of his new country. He also earned the reputation of being “a man of his word,” gaining the trust of his new neighbors as he put down deep roots in the area.

Fainberg started his first business in 1899, manufacturing overalls for the region’s coal miners. In 1906, seeing the local population’s growing need for home goods, he embarked on a new venture. Along with his son Sam, he opened Max L. Fainberg & Son at 56 E. Main St. in Plymouth.

Throughout the subsequent decades, the Fainbergs faced prosperous as well as difficult times. Fortunately, the store survived the Great Depression and also the catastrophic Great Flood of 1936. Following World War II, Stanley Fainberg joined his father and grandfather as the third generation of the family to work in the business.

Under this leadership, the company added new locations in Wilkes-Barre, Shickshinny and Berwick. It continued to serve these communities until the 1960s.

In the 1970s, a decision was made to expand the original Plymouth location. The company acquired the former F.W. Woolworth building across the street from the main store. With the extra space, the Fainbergs were able to carry their entire inventory of living room, dining room and bedroom furniture, bedding and appliances in one central location.

After the Hurricane Agnes flood of 1972, which severely damaged buildings and destroyed all the store’s inventory, the Fainbergs rebuilt and came back stronger than ever.

Throughout the years, Max, Sam and Stanley Fainberg have been known for being honest, loyal, determined businessmen. They have tirelessly served Plymouth, the entire Wyoming Valley and beyond for more than 100 years, providing generations of families with heirlooms and memories that will forever be treasured.

“Fainberg’s of Plymouth has been northeastern Pennsylvania’s destination for stylish, quality furnishings at an exceptional value,” said Stanley Fainberg. “This sale event offers customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy brand furniture at going-out-of-business prices. Our multi-level store is filled to the brim with name-brand product. Our prices are low, low, low!”

Fainberg added that he looks forward to seeing “many old friends during the sale. We have served Pennsylvania for 107 years and we would like to say ‘thank you’ to all our loyal customers.”

Everything in the store will be sold before the closing. Fainberg’s of Plymouth features furniture and bedding products from well-known brands such as Catnapper, Howard Miller and Klaussner.  A huge selection of product will be available, with discounts up to 50 percent.   Products are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
