Del Sol Furniture of Phoenix to open largest store in April
February 21, 2012,
PHOENIX — Furniture, electronics and appliance retailer Del Sol Furniture has acquired a former grocery store here for what will be its largest store.
The family-owned, four-store retailer said it acquired a 25,000-square-foot former grocery store at 83rd Avenue and Indian School Road. Remodeling is under way for a furniture store expected to open in April.
Del Sol said it put growth plans on hold during the economic downturn, but not it's bullish on market trends.
"We definitely held back when the economy slowed down, but we adapted and built a better foundation," Vice President Alex Macias said in a release. "When the opportunity for this space came along, we saw the potential to better serve our customers as well as get back to our West Valley roots."
The company said it will use the new location "as a flagship for the furniture brand." It did not disclose the purchase price or projected sales.
