Ashley HomeStore Celebrates 900th Store in New Zealand
Ashley HomeStore has celebrated its 900th store with the opening of one of its New Zealand locations in Ahuriri Napier on Friday, Nov. 30.
Four additional HomeStores also opened on the same day in New Zealand, located in Palmerston North, Paraparaumu, Lower Hutt and Hamilton. Tom McKimm, managing director of Big Save Furniture, the largest furniture retailer in New Zealand, will own and operate all five of the New Zealand HomeStore locations.
With Ashley HomeStore’s located in 54 countries, the opening of these five stores in New Zealand, a new country for the brand, Ashley now has achieved 310 International HomeStores.
“In less than a year, Ashley has celebrated multiple milestones with our 800th HomeStore opening in Mexico and our 900th HomeStore opening in New Zealand,” said Todd Wanek, president and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. “Our commitment is to deliver the best home furnishing selections and service to our customers. Each store that we open internationally better positions us to hold to that commitment.”
“2018 has been a tremendous year for the company, and it’s still not over yet,” added Wanek. “Ashley is working diligently to grow our global footprint, and we’re excited to achieve our next company milestone.”
