Gorman's Home Furnishings opens in Grand Rapids
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, February 28, 2011
Gorman's Home Furnishings and Interior Design announced the opening of a new 55,000-sq.-ft. store in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Gorman's signed the lease in January, moving into the spaces formerly occupied by Israels Home Furnishings at 2320 28th St. SE and Israels Windows Floors & More at 2340 28th St. SE, both in Grand Rapids.
"After months of planning, we are thrilled to officially open our fifth design center," President and COO Tom Lias said. "Our design team brings our deep commitment to quality and our 100 best brands."
Gorman's offers furniture and accessories for every room of the home from names such as Better Homes and Gardens, Henredon, Hooker Furniture, Lexington, Natuzzi, Paula Deen, Ralph Lauren, Stanley, Hancock & Moore and Universal.
As a resource center for the design community and public, Gorman's offers name-brand carpet, laminate, vinyl, ceramic tile and hardwood floors, as well as window treatments, custom bedding, upholstery and color-matching services. Customers in Grand Rapids, as well as those visiting the company's southeast Michigan design centers, will also have access to 15 specialty shops, including the sleep, leather, health, casual dining and designer closeout shops.
Operating under the Drexel Heritage name, Gorman's exited the Grand Rapids market in 1996 when the building the company occupied was sold during lease negotiations. Coincidentally, this is the same space in which Gorman's has reopened.
