In addition to extending its leases, the company plans major renovations for its High Point La-Z-Boy, England Furniture showrooms
MONROE, Mich. — La-Z-Boy Inc. recently announced that it plans to continue its investment and support of furniture markets in both High Point and Las Vegas.
The company said that it is formally extending the lease for its High Point showroom in Furniture Plaza and at the Las Vegas Market, where it shows in B555 of the World Market Center.
It also said that it plans major renovations of its showrooms in High Point, including showrooms for the La-Z-Boy brand, La-Z-Boy International and England Furniture. These investments, it noted, will allow the company to better serve its customers, partners, and all stakeholders.
“Our commitment today is wholly enabled by the continued market success and financial stability of La-Z-Boy Inc. — even in the face of challenging industry and economic conditions,” said Melinda D. Whittington, president and chief executive officer of La-Z-Boy Inc. “These investments demonstrate our commitment to the industry furniture markets, while reimagining the showrooms where our brands come to life, as we meet our customers and demonstrate our product quality, comfort and style.”
“La-Z-Boy continues to make disciplined investments in the face of a challenging industry environment, reflecting the La-Z-Boy brand’s global strength,” added Robert Sundy, president, La-Z-Boy Brand and chief commercial officer of La-Z-Boy. “These showroom investments also build on and celebrate the successful launch of our Long Live the Lazy brand campaign.”
The company plans to start renovations on its “reimagined” La-Z-Boy brand showroom in High Point after the April market that “will prepare to carry the La-Z-Boy brand into its next 100 years.”
“We are looking forward to delivering a modern, spacious, high-tech showroom for our customers to experience the innovative, high quality and uniquely comfortable offerings La-Z-Boy manufactures and sells,” Sundy added.
The company will update its England showroom in Plaza Suites Point with current finishes and styles that it believes “will accentuate the high-quality product manufactured and reliably delivered under the England brand.” The renovation is now underway with completion planned in time for the April High Point Market and England Furniture’s 60th year in business.
“England Furniture provides fast, custom upholstered furniture made here in the United States, and our investment in our showroom enables us to continue serving our customers for decades to come,” said Tj Linz, president of Portfolio Brands at La-Z-Boy.
James Chickini, La-Z-Boy vice president of real estate development and construction, noted, “Finally, we want to thank Andmore (formerly IMC), owner and operator of Plaza Suites at High Point and World Market Center Las Vegas, for their continued partnership. We also want to share our appreciation to our design partners, Barbour Spangle Design and Ryan Kronbetter Architect (RKA, PLLC), the High Point Market Authority and the city of High Point on this exciting project that will benefit our company and the local economy.”
