Ashley HomeStore Set to Open in Thunder Bay

CEDC Open for Business

THUNDER BAY – LIVING – Ashley HomeStore will open their doors this week at the company’s new 24,000 square-foot store located at 640 Balmoral Street in Thunder Bay. The site was the past location of the Reid’s Liquidation Centre. A large addition was added to the building, and a major renovation of the interior and exterior of the building was completed.

The new Ashley HomeStore will offer an exciting display of living room, dining room, and bedroom furniture, all professionally displayed down to the final details including lamps, rugs, and accessories. Consumers will find a broad selection of value-priced furniture and bedding and will enjoy quick delivery from the company’s three million square-foot Distribution Center located in Arcadia, Wisconsin.

The local store will be owned and operated by Scott Reid. Reid believes that the Ashley HomeStore will be a perfect compliment to the higher end family business, Reid’s Furniture, that has, and will continue to serve Thunder Bay for almost 50 years!

The store will be staffed by an experienced crew, including all of the employees from the former Reid’s Liquidation Centre, as well as four others including members of the closing Sears store in Thunder Bay. Additional warehouse, delivery, and service personnel have been added as well.

Store Manager, Mat Allan says, “It is a very exciting time for Reid’s as a company. This partnership with Ashley Furniture will allow is to offer the same great service that our customers have come to expect, with an even larger variety of affordable furniture that will look great in any space! I couldn’t be happier, and I know that our valued customers will feel the same!

Special thanks go out to Tomlinson for designing the building and to Perhol Construction and all of the local tradesman that worked diligently and efficiently to get the store open on budget and on time despite the usual hurdles and red tape.
