Haynes Furniture Brings Back Furniture Hall; Savvy Rest to Participate
2018 by Jason Schneider in Business Strategy, Industry
Haynes Furniture is celebrating its 120th anniversary as a family-owned and operated business in Virginia by bringing back the iconic Furniture Hall.
"Our customers are the whole reason we've been in business so long. What better way to commemorate this milestone than by reviving a part of our history and a local icon?" said E.J. Strelitz, CEO of Haynes Furniture.
Furniture Hall was the nickname given to the S.A. Stevens & Co. store in the late 1800s at the corner of Granby and Main Streets in downtown Norfolk. It was renowned for having the largest selection of fine furniture and carpeting in Virginia until it was shuttered after the stock market crash of 1929.
In 1955, the building became the flagship location for the Strelitz family business, Haynes Furniture, until the company relocated 20 years later to the warehouse-showroom at 5324 Virginia Beach Blvd. in Virginia Beach.
Savvy Rest, founded in 2006, is an organic mattress, bedding, and furniture company based in Charlottesville, Va.
"As a fellow Virginia-based business, Savvy Rest is excited to participate in Haynes Furniture's Furniture Hall. We deeply appreciate the support of our loyal local customers, and are thrilled to introduce our products to the Virginia Beach area with the support of our friends at Haynes," added John Howard-Smith, CEO of Savvy Rest.
