Company-owned Drexel Heritage store in N.C. closes
Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, September 9, 2013
JAMESTOWN, N.C. — Furniture Brands International has closed the corporate-owned Drexel Heritage store across the street from Furnitureland South here.
Furnitureland South has acquired all the home furnishings in the building.
A sign on the Drexel door is directing consumer to call the Raleigh, N.C., Drexel store for service or to visit the Drexel website.
Jason Harris, executive vice president of the Top 100 company Furnitureland South, confirmed that the retailer acquired everything in the Drexel building and is displaying the merchandise in its outlet center.
"As we continually review and evaluate our business, we make decisions on what is in the best interests of the company. Sometimes this means stores will be closed," Lisa Hanly, Furniture Brands vice president of corporate communications, said in an email.
Asked if any other stores have closed or will be closing, she said, "The Drexel Heritage retail store program is not one of our ongoing initiatives."
