McAllen, TX (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
The announcement of Lack's Stores, Inc. to close its 36 Texas furniture retail locations has created a flood of phone calls and e-mails to a longtime south Texas furniture retailer with practically the same name.
Lacks Valley Stores, a family-owned furniture operation with ten stores throughout the Lower Rio Grande Valley and Laredo, has been forced to respond to countless inquiries from customers and suppliers following the Lack's Stores announcement.
As a result, the management team at Lacks Valley Stores is stressing to customers and vendors its business is healthy and strong. Moreover, Lacks Valley Stores has no business ties to Lack's Stores, Inc. of Victoria, Texas.
"We're celebrating 75 years in South Texas," says Lacks Valley Stores' CEO Lee Aaronson. "Thousands of families have shopped in our stores."
Lacks Valley Stores (http://www.lacksvalley.com), ranks 65th in the top 100 retail furniture operations in the U.S. with over 700 employees, according Furniture Today.
Its stores are located on the Texas border from Laredo to Port Isabel, including locations in Brownsville, Harlingen, Edinburgh, Pharr, McAllen, Mission and Rio Grande City. The 140,000-square-foot Lacks Valley Store in McAllen is the largest furniture store in Texas.
