Walter E. Smithe Opening Expanded Store

By Home Furnishings Business in Furniture Retailing on April 2007 Walter E. Smithe, a Chicago furniture retailer with 13 locations, will open a new store Thursday that replaces a far smaller location.

Following a ribbon-cutting, designer and well-known HGTV personality Candice Olson will present a free program called €œCandice Olson on Design€ and sign copies of her latest book. The Vernon Hills store is among the first to offer the Candice Olson Collection in its entirety.

The Vernon Hills store replaces a much smaller location at Townline Mall. It€™s one of a series of relocations and expansions in recent years that have made Walter E. Smithe the market leader in custom upholstery and leather furniture. In 2005, the company moved its Merrillville a short distance away, and in 2001, a store in Winnetka relocated to Old Orchard.
