Gorman's Home Furnishings & Interior Design Opens Fifth Location in Grand Rapids

Gorman’s signed the lease to the nearly 55,000 square foot space in January

Southfield, MI, March 02, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Gorman’s Home Furnishings and Interior Design today announced it has opened its nearly 55,000 square foot Grand Rapids store. The announcement was made by Gorman’s partners Tom Lias, president and COO; Bernie Moray, CEO; Jeff Roberts, executive vice president, and John Moray, vice president of operations.

Gorman’s signed the lease in January, moving into the spaces formerly occupied by Israels Home Furnishings at 2320 28th St. SE and Israels Windows Floors & More at 2340 28th St. SE, both in Grand Rapids.

“After months of planning, we are thrilled to officially open our fifth design center,” said President Tom Lias. “Our design team brings our deep commitment to quality and our 100 best brands.”

Gorman’s offers fine furniture and accessories for every room of the home at a range of price points from sought-after names such as Better Homes and Gardens, Henredon, Hooker Furniture, Lexington, Natuzzi, Paula Deen, Ralph Lauren, Stanley, Hancock & Moore and Universal. As a resource center for the design community and public, Gorman’s offers name-brand carpet; laminate, vinyl, ceramic tile and hardwood floors, as well as window treatments, custom bedding, upholstery and color-matching services. Customers in Grand Rapids, as well as those visiting the company’s SE Michigan design centers, will also have access to 15 specialty shops, including the sleep, leather, health, casual dining and designer closeout shops.

Operating under the Drexel Heritage name, Gorman’s exited the Grand Rapids market in 1996 after 15 years, when the building the company occupied was sold during lease negotiations. Coincidentally, this is the same space in which Gorman’s has reopened.
