The Dump Opens Chicago Market Store
Furniture retailer The Dump opened its 11th store over the weekend in the Chicago area.
The 134,000-square-foot store in Lombard, Ill., is the latest in the furniture retailer's nationwide expansion plan.
"Today marks the beginning of an entirely new furniture shopping experience for the Chicago marketplace," said E.J. Strelitz, president and CEO of The Dump. "At The Dump, we are able to consistently deliver massive savings on the best furniture, mattresses and rugs as a result of our unique retail business model. Unlike traditional retail, The Dump is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week, which allows us to replenish our stock with completely new inventory during the rest of the week. We are also able to keep our overhead lower by closing the store during the traditionally slower period of the week and pass those savings onto the consumer."
The Dump Furniture Store is a division of Virginia Beach, Va.-based Haynes Furniture.
"The Dump's approach to buying furnishings supports our overall consumer value proposition," said Randi Strelitz, executive vice president of The Dump. "Our merchandising team is passionately focused on securing all brand-new, top-quality merchandise at highly discounted prices from a variety of sources, including overstocks, one-of-a-kinds, factory sell-outs, showroom models, and design prototypes. This approach ensures the best prices as well as the most creative mix of merchandise in the marketplace."
