From Home Furnishing Business

Sparks Home Furnishings to Close

Retailer Sparks Home Furnishings in Vancouver, Wash., is closing after 132 years in business.

It's now official: Sparks Home Furnishings, downtown Vancouver's oldest business, is closing after 132 years.

The store has weathered lots of history. It started as a small tin-smithing shop, became a hardware store, was a department store and then an appliance retailer before its final bloom as a furniture store.

The business just couldn't withstand the economic changes now underway, said Tom Craig, who confirmed this week he's preparing for a going-out-of-business sale. Craig is selling the building at 1001 Broadway to a downtown developer for $1.7 million in a deal expected to close in June.
