Edina, MN (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
After 35 years in the TwinCities area, Mr. Kurosh Amrami will be closing the doors of Grand Oriental Rugs forever. At the age of 16, Kurosh began working in his father’s weaving shop in Persia. So it is bittersweet for the Amrami family to close the business after 2 generations of excellence in St. Paul and greater Minneapolis. Thousands of customers have come to respect and value the vast array of Persian Rugs available at Grand Oriental Rugs.
“Some of these antique rugs were hand-woven in the early 1900’s. We have a superb collection of Masterwork Hand-Knotted Estate Carpets in Silk and Wool.” said Mr. Amrami.
The website for the business is http://www.grandorientalrugs.com posting an extensive selection of rugs in many sizes and from Iranian cities such as Tabriz, Kashan, Mashad, Kirman, Kazvin, Sarouk, Bakhtier, Heriz, Quashi, Gabaeh, Kurid, Bidjar, Hamadan, and others. “Our inventory of both Antique and Contemporary Persian carpets are from Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Afghanistan, Egypt, China, Tibet and other countries, in a variety of sizes and weaves. We have thousands of rugs that must be sold within the next several weeks”, said Kurosh Amrami, owner.
This going out of business sale is underway now and only days remain. In fact, every item must be liquidated prior to September 8th when the business will be forced to close the store and required to vacate the premises. Bargain hunters are reminded to measure their rooms and bring the dimensions and/or color samples with them to the sale event. The Edina, MN location is open 7-days-a-week; weekdays from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM and weekends from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
