Gardberg’s Furniture, which has been furnishing the Mobile area’s finest homes for more than a half-decade, is closing its 25,000 square foot store with the retirement of its long-time president. The sale, which began in early June, is being managed by Planned Furniture Promotions (PFP).
“After 63 years of furnishing the finest homes in our region, we’re reaching out to all of the customers we’ve worked with in our wonderful store, and through our in-home design work, with this liquidation sale.” said President and second-generation family member David Gardberg. He added that he wanted to thank everyone for their patronage.
The store was founded by his father, Abraham Gardberg in 1949, making it the oldest, continuously operating furniture and design business in the Mobile area. In addition to carrying the best selection of hand-made rugs from around the world, Gardberg’s has been hand-cleaning clients’ rugs for more than 35 years.
“Any business closing is going to involve difficult decisions, including ours, but the PFP team is helping to make the process go as smoothly and effectively as possible,” adds Gardberg.
“Planned Furniture Promotions is proud that the Gardberg family chose PFP to assist them in this milestone event and share in the great history of David Gardberg and his family business in Mobile,” said Roy Hester, senior vp, Planned Furniture Promotions.
The inventory liquidation includes well-known fine furniture brands such as Hancock & Moore, Harden, Maitland Smith, Hekman, as well as Stearns & Foster mattresses.
