Boyles Furniture & Rugs will hold the ribbon cutting at its Avon, Conn. store during a grand opening celebration Aug. 21-22.
In May, Boyles opened a store in Mocksville, N.C.
"The North Carolina store is off to a great start, and we've been overwhelmed with the positive response from the community and surrounding areas," said Mark Bannon, president, Boyles Furniture & Rugs. "We're delighted to see and welcome our former friends and clients at the showroom, as well as many new customers. In the two-and-a-half months since the Mocksville grand opening, we're excited to report strong sales that are exceeding our expectations."
Bannon noted that Boyles is working with customers throughout the U.S. and internationally, as far away as the Middle East.
The new, 22,000 square feet store is located 20 minutes west of Hartford, at the corner of Rt. 44 and Rt. 10 in Avon. The former Nassau Furniture location underwent renovations under the guidance of a partnership that includes Chad and Alex Hendricks, sons of the original owners of Boyles Furniture, and a group of investors headed by Gene Rosenberg, American Furniture Hall of Fame nominee and co-founder of Top 100 company Bob's Discount Furniture and Planned Furniture Promotions.
"The Farmington Valley area in Connecticut is a perfect location for the Boyles brand, concept and merchandise," said Rob Rosenberg, executive vice president of Boyles Furniture & Rugs. "Several of the company owners reside locally and are aware of the unmet demand for mid- to high-end furniture at a value. We've gathered a highly talented group of designers and sales personnel to serve and accommodate our customers' needs."
The Avon store will carry brands in the upper-middle to high-end tier, including furnishings from Sherrill, Henredon, Maitland Smith, Drexel Heritage, Heirloom bedding, as well as Boyles branded products. The Boyles rug gallery features high quality, hand-woven rugs.
Bannon said plans are in the offing for additional Boyles Furniture and Rugs locations, including free-standing and licensed rug galleries.
