Atlanta-based Leath Furniture, LLC, a leading home furnishings retailer with showrooms in Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, announced that after over 100 years in the retail furniture business it has decided to close its remaining eighteen stores and will begin conducting a going out of business sale at all of its locations.

We want to thank all of our loyal customers for their support and patronage and our employees for their years of dedicated service."

Snow said "During our going out of business sale, we look forward to welcoming our customers one last time to purchase furniture at discounted prices."
