LOMBARD, Ill., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- One year after losing its entire Woodridge, Ill. warehouse to an extra-alarm fire, The RoomPlace has a lot to celebrate. While the 320,000 square-foot warehouse was declared a total loss, all 50 employees working in the building at the time were not injured thanks to the service of numerous local fire departments who were called on-site. Since that time, the company has built an even larger warehouse while remaining focused on efficiency, sustainability and serving the members of the local community.
To commemorate this extraordinary feat, The RoomPlace is giving back to numerous charitable organizations, as well as local firehouses, as part of their $1 Million Community Care Pledge to the communities that have stood by them.
"We are grateful for the continued support that the local community has shown us, not only following last year's fire, but throughout our entire 100-year history," said Paul Adams, chief executive officer of The RoomPlace. "As a local, family-owned business, we place strong value on giving back to the areas where we work and live and The RoomPlace $1 Million Community Care Pledge is our way of expressing our gratitude to these extraordinary organizations."
Since 1912, The RoomPlace has been proudly serving the Chicagoland and greater Indianapolis communities with stores that are committed to creating a shopping experience unlike any other, all while offering excellent services, great selection of quality furniture, name brand mattresses and financing offers that allow customers to "Get It All." The RoomPlace supports a mission to bring awareness and support to local communities where it operates and this year's $1 Million Community Care Pledge marks the second consecutive year that The RoomPlace will be making a sizable gift to these organizations.
