There is still some very nice furniture left


There is still some very nice furniture left in the store. We took another mark down – you should have received that notice in the mail – so there are some great bargains to be found. I was talking with a lady over the weekend and we agreed that it was just a question of what would work in her home.

We still have a very good selection of mattresses and LaZBoy recliners. We have bedroom furniture and still have some nice dining room sets to check out. Living room furniture seems to me to have a smaller selection but I realize that is because we used to show 200 sets and now we are down to about 20. Steve still has over 100 rugs left on his racks in the Flooring department.. But every time I look, he is rolling up another to send out the door.

There are only 17 days left and then we are gone. It’s getting close now.

Winter has arrived up north, let’s hope it doesn’t move south to us very quickly.

Doesn’t This Look Better?

The Third Avenue windows are done, Bob and Dennis have populated the area, and Deb has worked her magic in completing the presentation.  Doesn’t this look better now?

It always feels so good when we are able to reclaim some more of the store.  This a continuing battle but we are making progress.

Well, it looks like spring has arrived.  Can I say that?  Let’s hope I haven’t jinxed us now.  It has been beautiful weather for March.  It was great to see so many people downtown for the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  There were people everywhere.  That is what downtown Cedar Rapids used to be like – let’s make that happen again.
