Levin Furniture draws crowd to new store in Greensburg, Pa.
Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, September 21, 2011
GREENSBURG, Pa. — Levin Furniture drew a crowd to its new store here in an event that raised money for charity.
The Smithton, Pa.-based Top 100 company grand opened its seventh Pittsburgh-area showroom, a 53,000-square-foot store at the Westmoreland Mall, this past weekend. The store is Levin's 16th overall in its Pittsburgh-area and Ohio markets.
President Robert Levin said the opening was more of a "to do" than most for the retailer, with lots of community involvement, giveaways and displays of sports cars and a fire truck. The company also donated $5,000 each to the local food bank, the Red Cross of Western Pennsylvania and the local fire department.
Levin's one-day Saturday sale was strong, he said, as the store drew some 3,500 consumers through the doors that day. Grand opening promotions are continuing for the next week and a half. He declined to disclose sales projection for the new store.
Among the Saturday events at the store was an "Adopt-a-Pet Day," a crafts table, blood pressure screening by Mutual Aid EMS, free snow cones and cookies for children and other free food.
Levin is No. 40 on Furniture/Today's Top 100 with estimated 2010 furniture, bedding and accessories sales of $145.9 million.
