COON RAPIDS, Minn. – HOM Furniture is set to open its newest location at the Oakwood Mall in Eau Claire, Wis., originally planned for March 19 but delay after voluntarily shutting down all locations in light of COVID-19.
HOM originally acquired the 100,000-square-foot Younkers building last year and remodeled 70,000 square feet of it to serve as the company’s newest showroom. Currently, the company is seeking a tenant for the remaining 30,000 square feet of space.
“Everybody likes a gorgeous home especially now when we are spending so much time at home,” said Rodney Johansen, president and CEO of HOM Furniture. “During these times of uncertainty we not only have a brand new fresh showroom but with the large spacious size of our showrooms you can feel safe with social distancing, and our new showroom also is outfitted with the newest air purification and circulation handling systems available.”
In addition to those safety measures, the new location provides a wide selection of furniture and space for HOM Furniture ’s specialty brands including Seasonal Concepts Patio, Bargain Shop, a new Uptown Urban department and The Market, a source for home decor and wall art. A Cookie Shop and a separate entrance for the location’s expanded specialty mattress store, Sleep Express, are also available on-site.
To see the space in person, HOM Furniture asks that customers go online or call (763) 767-3675 to set up an appointment, although walk-ins are being accepted.
HOM Furniture has 17 HOM Furniture locations in total, along with two Gabberts locations and a soon-to-be-expanded three DOCK86 locations. The next step in the continued expansion of the HOM Furniture brand is the opening of our new location in Bloomington, Minn., which will house all three brands.
