Coconut Creek, Fla-based retailer Carls Furniture plans to close its remaining three stores and kick off a liquidation sale.
Carls Furniture, the venerable retailer whose origins date back to 1941, is closing its remaining three stores in Broward and launching a private liquidation sale, according to a letter sent to “preferred clients and friends.’’
