Furniture Factory Outlet to Relocate to Arkansas
The company will relocate from Muldrow, Okla., to Fort Smith, Ark., and the move will create 64 new, full-time jobs.
“Moving our operations to Fort Smith provides the strategic foundation for our aggressive long-term growth plans, and further builds on our commitment to Arkansas,” said Larry Zigerelli, president and CEO of FFO Home.
The company will occupy 180,000 square feet in a 618,000-square-foot building that once housed a Whirlpool distribution center.
"It's always encouraging to have a company decide to locate a corporate headquarters in Arkansas," said Gov. Asa Hutchinson. "Companies from across the U.S. and internationally realize that our central location and versatile workforce make Arkansas an ideal destination. Thanks to FFO Home for choosing to make this significant investment in Arkansas. We are proud to now include FFO Home among the companies that call Arkansas home."
FFO has had a presence in Arkansas since 1984 when it opened its first store in Fort Smith. Today, the company owns and operates 36 retail stores in the Midwest, including 17 in Arkansas employing 151 people. Among the brands offered by FFO are Broyhill, Serta and Flexsteel as well as Natural Elements mattresses with prices 30 to 50 percent lower than name brands.
