Ottawa, Illinois – January 20, 2010 — Furniture Sellers Home Furnishings is going out of business and will soon close its doors forever. Founded in 1997 by Richard Orlandi, Furniture Sellers has become an institution, providing hundreds of families with fine home furnishings and earning a reputation for attentive service, low prices, and dedication to their customers.

“Furniture Sellers going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on January 21st, ” said Richard Orlandi owner of Furniture Sellers. Orlandi went on to say, “We have reductions of up to 75% on every item in the store from such well-known manufacturers as Lane, Ashley, Englander, American, Home Elegance and many others. Over $2 million at cost will be sold as quickly as possible at the lowest prices in the store’s history.” Orlandi continues, “Every item in the Furniture Sellers 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 Orlandi, who has revealed plans for a major store closing event that will take place in the coming weeks. In announcing the store closing, Orlandi stated, “The decision to close the store has been a difficult one. We are a part of the history in Ottawa 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 Orlandi. He went on to assure current customers that Furniture Sellers will honor all existing warranties and service agreements.

According to Orlandi, the total liquidation event will allow them and their employees one final chance to serve area residents and to say thanks for the memories. Orlandi 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’.”

Furniture Sellers going-out-of-business total liquidation will begin on Thursday, January 21st, 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 Richard Orlandi, “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 years.”
