The company said that the sale offers large discounts on a wide selection of furniture and mattresses. Home accessories are being offered at 35% off and heirloom quality rugs are available at 65% off.

The retailer, which first announced it was closing all locations this past November, was first opened in 1997 in St. Louis by brothers Tom and Dave Phillips. It was one of the first stores in the U.S. to operate on an abbreviated schedule of Friday through Sunday only, as part of a strategy to reduce costs and pass along the savings to customers. Its stores offered brand name furniture that was on display in large warehouse-type showrooms and for years the company prided itself on its “friendly, no-hassle customer experience.”

Over the years, the company was considered a generous donor to St. Vincent de Paul Society, Newman Center at Washington University and United Way.

Following the store closing sales, the company will close permanently.
