Bob’s Discount Furniture announces its new store in Staten Island, New York. The 10,000 square-foot location will be Bob’s 140th, its first in Staten Island and their 16th store in the state, strengthening an already strong network in Metro New York and surrounding area. The Staten Island location will hold its grand opening on March 4. The new store comes as Bob’s celebrates its 30th anniversary.
The new Bob’s, located at 2385 Richmond Avenue, Suite 1, will feature a curated collection of the best of Bob’s and an innovative experience center allowing enhanced exploration of its broad selection of furnishings. This store format will be a first for Bob’s and is aimed at offering an easy-to-shop, personalized customer experience while also broadening its expansion opportunities into new markets.
“We are thrilled to bring Bob’s Discount Furniture to Staten Island next month,” said Bill Barton, CEO of Bob’s Discount Furniture. “Our new location will introduce exciting new ways to shop our stylish furnishings along with the everyday low prices and gimmick-free shopping experience that our customers have enjoyed for 30 years.
In addition, the Bob’s team is also looking forward to fostering strong community relationships in the region including donations of $2,500 to P.S 42 Eltingville School and A Very Special Place, a not-for-profit organization offering programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. These donations are part of a larger $85,000 donation being given out to local schools and charities across the country to commemorate new stores openings in 2021.
