Ideally situated at the intersection of Interstate 95 and 395, Marlo will provide a new shopping experience for their customers. Neal Glickfield, President of Marlo Furniture explains, "I grew up in this business, and I understand that consumers today are savvy, and style and value conscious. I developed a new concept that speaks to the needs of our customers. My vision for 8-Stores-Under-One-Roof allows my customer the convenience of finding the perfect furniture for their home and at affordable prices. I put fun back into shopping for furniture!" The Marlo Furniture 8-Stores-Under-One-Roof concept is successful. In fact, sales have far exceeded expectations.
