Heath E. Combs -- Furniture Today, August 10, 2011
As Furniture/Today previously reported, the 101,000-square-foot store in the former Expo Design Center on Milwaukee Avenue will expand the Top 100 company's market coverage in the Kenosha, Wis./Lake County, Ill., area.
According to the latest report, the store will feature large windows and skylights to bring natural light into the showroom. It will employ more than 100 people.
The store is part of larger expansion plans for Waukesha, Wis.-based Steinhafels. The company plans to open a ninth mattress store by Labor Day in Madison, Wis., and a new full-line store is in the works for Madison's east side.
