Ashley Establishes Permanent Presence at TheMart, Launches New Outdoor Collections
The new showroom located on the 16th floor, in suite #1650 will showcase many new collections made from wood, wicker, aluminum and a variety of other materials.
“We are extremely excited to have a permanent home at TheMart,” said Todd Wanek, president and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries. “Our outdoor business has been very strong and our debut in Chicago last year in the 7th floor exhibit hall was exceptional. Now we’re taking it to the next level and want to provide our customers with a great shopping experience in a comfortable setting; we believe TheMart is a great venue to sell our line.”
Byron Morton, VP of Leasing at The Mart says, “We are thrilled that Ashley Furniture has established a permanent presence at TheMart. Ashley’s presence here will further broaden the already wide variety of outdoor products available at the ICFA Preview and Casual Market Chicago.”
“We are going to kick-off the opening of our new showroom with a large assortment of new collections that will be ready to ship by January, said Andy Sokol, VP Merchandising for Outdoor by Ashley. “We’ve been working really hard to bring new and exciting collections to market with the fashion and value that Ashley is know for. Plus, we will be showcasing our best sellers that are in stock now, and will be for the rest of the year, so buyers can plan for both 2019 and for 2020.”
