Even amidst a global pandemic Broad River Retail, LLC dba as Ashley HomeStore has continued to grow and open new stores in the Southeast region.
Just last week they had their grand opening for their second Ashley Homestore in Durham, NC, opening a 30,000 square foot store in the Renaissance Shopping Center. Beyond this new location in Durham, Broad River Retail has also opened new Ashley HomeStores in Raleigh, NC and in Four Oaks, NC where they just completed construction on a new 182,000 square foot eastern North Carolina campus that will include a distribution facility and Ashley HomeStore Outlet.
Speaking on the Triangle market, Broad River CEO Charlie Malouf said, “That market is under super-charged growth for us the past two or three years, including this year. Our new campus and distribution center affords us the opportunity to really service those guests. We know that there is still more potential.” Their growth is not limited to North Carolina, however, with new stores currently under construction in Augusta, GA and Spartanburg, SC. Dale Hall, Partner of New South Properties who represents Broad River Retail, spoke on the company’s success stating, “The Broad River team is committed to growing their brand even during these challenging times and by taking advantage of available retail box space they will position the company for the next 10 years of growth.”
