Two Natuzzi stores closing in Dallas area

Moshe Rudelman owns both units
HIGH POINT — Natuzzi Americas announced this week that its two dedicated Natuzzi stores in Texas are being closed due to the economic climate.

The company said the Dallas store closed July 31 and a store in Plano will close Aug. 31. Both locations are owned by Moshe Rudelman.

"We appreciate the passion that Moshe and his team have brought to the business and Natuzzi," said Cary Benson, president of Natuzzi Americas. "We are disappointed that he has decided to close the stores and wish to thank him for all his efforts and dedication over the past five years."

Benson said the company will work with Rudelman and his staff in the coming months to satisfy all outstanding customer orders.

The Dallas store opened in November 2004 and the Plano store opened in August 2008.

Benson said the Dallas store could reopen as a company-owned location, but no final decision has been made.

Natuzzi Americas will continue to operate its company-owned flagship store in New York City, he said.
