Tilles Interiors Closing in Indiana
Deere Park Associates will conduct a liquidation sale. Advertising and marketing for the event will be directed by Focus Media Co. using direct mail, newspaper and TV ads.
Sam and Belle Tilles founded Tilles Interiors in 1940 in downtown Hammond, Ind. Don and Dorothy Peddycord bought the business, who had owned a furniture store in Chicago’s Beverly area for more than 15 years, bought the business when the owners retired in 1972.
The business moved from Hammond to Munster a few years later, and then expanded to almost 25,000 square feet of state of the art display. In the late 1990’s, Don and Dorothy retired and their daughter and son-in-law Andy and Robin Jost took over.
