In what's being called a 'revolution in retail,' Michigan-based Gardner-White Furniture will open new locations inside two Detroit-area Best Buy stores.
Steve Tracey, president of Gardner-White says the new retail concept is the ultimate in consumer convenience. "Time is the most precious commodity to our customers and this is the answer to our time-starved society. These new concept stores will allow consumers to get the furniture and electronics they need, while saving both time and money" Tracey said.
The new Gardner-White stores will be located in Best Buy Stores at 2169 Telegraph Road, in Bloomfield Hills, and at 43525 West Oaks Drive, in Novi.
Both stores are set to open their doors on September 21, and will host public grand opening parties on September 28, 28 & 30 to give away more than $25,000 in free prizes, plus a $10,000 Gardner-White shopping spree.
According to a release, the opening of the two new locations will mark the first time ever that a major furniture retailer has built new stores within existing locations of a major consumer electronics retailer.
While the parties are free of charge, Gardner-White is requesting donations of clean, new or gently used blankets for those in need this winter. Gardner-White will then match the total number of blankets donated by guests. All blankets will be given to Volunteers of America for local distribution.
Hours of the grand opening parties at the new Gardner-White stores in Bloomfield Hills and Novi-West Oaks are Friday, Sept. 28 from 4 - 9 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 29 from 12 - 9 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 30 from 12 - 6 p.m.
