Weekends Only Going Out of Business Liquidation Begins at All Stores
Weekends Only Furniture & Mattress, furniture retailer and one of the most unique brands in retail, is going out of business and will begin liquidating at all store locations. Owner Tom Phillips is retiring.
Weekends Only was one of the first stores in the country to operate on an abbreviated schedule, open Friday through Sunday only, designed to save customers money. The business was built on offering the best price on brand name furniture displayed in large, no frills warehouse showrooms with friendly and no hassle customer experience.
Total liquidation of the St. Louis area stores begins Jan. 26 and is open every day of the week for the public to take advantage of the historic prices offered at the famous retail chain.
The locations include:
- Bridgeton store at 11333 Blake Dr.
- South County store at 6303 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
- St. Peters store at 411 Mid Rivers Mall Dr.
- West County store at 14205 Manchester Rd.
- Fairview Heights, Illinois store at 51 Commerce Ln.
Store hours and details of the sale are available on the website at www.weekendsonly.com.
The going-out-of-business sale offers discounts on a huge selection of furniture and mattresses from top brands, home accessories at 35% off, and heirloom-quality rugs in a variety of styles at 65% off.
Store management encourages early shopping to take advantage of the selection across the 40,000 to 50,000-square-foot showroom.
Weekends Only first opened its doors in 1997 in St. Louis by brothers Tom and Dave Phillips, who have the furniture business in their blood.
The Phillips family opened Phillips Mercantile in 1937 in downtown St. Louis, and with five store expansions across the area, two in Indiana and one in Springfield, Missouri, the Phillips family has been part of countless families and their homes for 85 years.
They have been generous donors to St. Vincent de Paul Society, Newman Center at Washington University and United Way.
Weekends Only will close permanently after its eight-store liquidation ends, having held a place in the furniture industry as a Top 100 U.S. furniture store for many years.
