Elan Contemporary Furnishings To Close After 37 Years
Omaha, Nebraska – June 15, 2009 — Elan Contemporary Furnishings is going out of business and will soon close its doors forever. Founded in 1972 by Connie and Gary Stevenson, Elan has become an institution, providing generations of families with fine contemporary home furnishings and earning a reputation for attentive service and dedication to their customers.
“The Elan going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on June 18th,” said Connie Stevenson co-owner of Elan with husband Gary Stevenson. Stevenson went on to say, “We have reductions of up to 75% on every item in the store from such well-known manufacturers as American Leather, Ekornes, Thayer Coggin, Carter, Ello, Elite, Dinec and many others. Over $4 million at cost will be sold as quickly as possible at the lowest prices in the store’s history.” Stevenson continues, “Every item in the Elan multi-million dollar inventory will be sold, regardless of cost…This is a wall-to-wall total sell-off.”
The decision to close the store was made by Stevenson, who has revealed plans for a major store closing event that will take place in the coming weeks. In announcing the store closing, Stevenson stated, “The decision to close the store has been a difficult one. Elan is a part of the history in Omaha and we have loved being a part of so many families’ lives. “There comes a time to move on, given the current economic conditions; while we can still offer our customers the quality merchandise and service we’re known for,” said Stevenson. Stevenson went on to assure current customers that Elan will honor all existing warranties and service agreements.
According to the Stevenson, the total liquidation event will allow them and their employees one final chance to serve area residents and to say thanks for the memories. Stevenson said, “We have been so gratified by the wonderful support our customers have given us over these many years. That’s why we’ve decided to have a major going-out-of-business total liquidation and offer our customers price reductions unlike any we’ve ever had in the store’s history. This event will give the area residents the opportunity to own fine home furnishings at once-in-a-lifetime savings, and it will be our way of saying, ‘thanks’.”
The Elan going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on Thursday, June 18th, and will continue until all merchandise is sold. Advisors to the event will be Northbrook, Illinois based Deere Park Associates, one of the leading consultants to the furniture industry. According to Connie Stevenson, “Deere Park Associates was clearly the best furniture consultant in terms of reliability, integrity, professionalism, resources, and proven success. It is very important to us to maintain the standards and reputation we’ve earned over the past 37 years.”
