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."
