Morris Furniture to Open Newest Columbus Stores Next Month

Retailer Morris Furniture is expanding its presence in the Columbus, Ohio, market with the opening next month of a two-story structure that will house an Ashley HomeStore on the first floor and a Morris Home store on the second floor.

It will be the fourth Ashley store and the second Morris Home store in the Columbus market.

The first floor also will include a Better Sleep Shop mattress store.

“Columbus has a great tradition of quality home furnishings stores that have offered inspiration and quality service,” said Morris Furniture President Larry Klaben. “We are proud to fill the void left behind by Glick’s Furniture, White’s Furniture, Kittle’s and many more. Since opening our first Ashley HomeStore in Columbus 12 years ago, we have known that Columbus would be a great market for our Morris Home brand.”

The first Morris Home store in Columbus opened last November, and to celebrate its first anniversary, the company is sponsoring an appearance by Paula Deen on Nov. 8.

Proceeds from a VIP Brunch with Deen, a meet-and-greet book signing, silent auction and raffle will go to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. Details are available at

Klaben said the company continues to search for additional real estate opportunities in the Columbus market.

“We will soon be announcing another showroom location. We are finalizing negotiations on our next Columbus showroom location with a target Q1 2018 opening,” he said.

Morris Furniture currently has 18 showrooms in the Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, markets.
