    ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Marlo Furniture opened its
 first store in 1955. Today, Marlo Furniture is the largest furniture
 retailer in the Washington, D.C. area and one of America's top 70 furniture
 retailers. Over one million Washingtonians have purchased their furniture
 from Marlo Furniture.
     Marlo Furniture showrooms across the region are celebrating 50 years in
 business, and the grand re-opening of the Alexandria store. Known as the
 "flagship store," the Alexandria showroom has received a 2.5 million dollar
 renovation. Ideally situated at the intersection of Interstate 95 and 395,
 Marlo will provide a new shopping experience for their customers.
     Neal Glickfield, President of Marlo Furniture explains, "I grew up in
 this business, and I understand that consumers today are savvy, and style
 and value conscious. I developed a new concept that speaks to the needs of
 our customers. My vision for 8-Stores-Under-One-Roof allows my customer the
 convenience of finding the perfect furniture for their home and at
 affordable prices. I put fun back into shopping for furniture!"
     The Marlo Furniture 8-Stores-Under-One-Roof concept is successful. In
 fact, sales have far exceeded expectations. That makes sense: the Marlo
 showrooms are easy to navigate and provide added convenience to shoppers.
 The width and breadth of furniture and accessories is outstanding. New
 merchandise arrives weekly to appeal to the broader client base that Marlo
 Furniture serves in their four Washington area showrooms.
     Glickfield says, "There's something for everyone. We have included a
 variety of new designers to enhance our existing product line. Our buyers
 travel the four corners of the world for new and exciting pieces, and
 because we buy direct, we pass the savings to our customers."
