We're excited to grow in the Chicago area, where we already operate our largest showroom, our 40,000-square-foot Naperville facility. Opening the Downers Grove location will be a fitting way to celebrate our company's 15th anniversary, and a great way to wrap up 2008, which we expect to be our best year ever.
Milwaukee (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
P.M. Bedroom Gallery (http://www.pmbedroomgallery.com), one of the nation's largest sellers of 100% American-made bedroom furniture, has announced plans to expand its Chicago area presence by year-end.
The company - with eight showrooms in the Chicago, Twin Cities and Milwaukee areas - will replace its Lombard location in December with a much-larger Downers Grove showroom, according to Arvid Huth, P.M. Bedroom Gallery president and co-founder.
He confirmed that the company has leased a 20,600-square-foot building at 1207 Butterfield Rd. formerly occupied by Rossi Furniture. The new showroom will be nearly twice the size of P.M. Bedroom Gallery's Lombard location just a few blocks away, and will be on a major highway close to prime shopping areas Yorktown Center and Oakbrook Center. "Demographics of the upscale retail centers closely match that of our customers," said Huth.
"Despite today's economy, we're able to expand because our loyal customers keep confirming their willingness to invest in heirloom-quality, custom bedroom furniture -- all made by Midwest craftsmen and complete with a lifetime warranty," he said.

Employees from P.M. Bedroom Gallery's Lombard showroom will transfer to the Downers Grove location. Huth said the expansion will create additional hiring opportunities at the new showroom.
