The RoomPlace Opens 26th Store in Peoria, Ill.
The RoomPlace held a grand opening ceremony on May 8 to commemorate its newest and largest showroom, located in the Northwoods Mall at 2200 W. War Memorial Dr. in Peoria, Ill.
The location is the first in the Peoria market and is The RoomPlace's 26th store. At 65,000 square feet, it will be the largest mainline store and will take over the second-story space previously occupied by Macy's within the Northwoods Mall.
With other locations across Illinois and Indiana, the new store brings the company's employee total to more than 700.
"We are excited to be expanding into the Peoria market and providing a differentiated retail experience at the Northwoods Mall," said Paul Adams, CEO. "Not only can we offer the local Peoria community the largest furniture selection in the area, but we are proud to offer a variety of financing options to help make furniture shopping more affordable for everyone."
With the opening of this newest location, The RoomPlace will continue its expansion into new markets, adding new jobs, and helping to revitalize underserved areas.
"As a family owned company, we take pride in bettering the communities where we live and work,” said Bruce Berman, chairman. “We are proud to be adding a new retail option into the Northwoods Mall and creating 50 new jobs through our newest store.”
