Ashley Homestore Celebrates 600th Store Opening

Florida, USA : Ashley HomeStore, the largest furniture retailer in the U.S., celebrated the grand opening of its 600th store in Hanoi, Vietnam. The fast-growing furniture store brand has added more than 50 new HomeStores worldwide this year and is planning to open more than 100 additional HomeStores in 2016.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Ashley HomeStore family,” said Mr. Nam, owner and licensee of the HomeStore in Hanoi. “We look forward to providing our guests with inspirational styles for their home and delivering the exceptional home furnishing values and service that customers have come to expect from Ashley HomeStore.”

Ashley HomeStore’s primary source of home furnishings is one of the largest home furniture manufacturers in the world -- Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. (Ashley). Ashley’s ability to design, manufacture, and deliver a broad assortment of inspiring home furnishing styles at exceptional values has been a major reason for the growing popularity of the Ashley HomeStore brand.

Throughout its 18-year history, Ashley HomeStore’s network of licensed and company-owned stores has experienced explosive growth -- exceeding USD3 billion in sales in 2014. Ashley HomeStore has been the number one selling U.S. furniture store brand since 2006 and now has store locations in 28 countries.

“It’s fitting that the 600(th) Ashley HomeStore is opening outside of the United States,” said Todd Wanek, President and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. “We are experiencing tremendous international momentum with the Ashley HomeStore brand and we look forward to its continued growth in the New Year and beyond.”

Chuck Spang, Ashley’s President of International Sales, added, “The Ashley HomeStore licensee program’s success in various regions around the world including Asia, Africa, Australia, the Middle East; and North, Central and South America is a testament to its global appeal.”

“A culture of continuous improvement and a relentless focus on the guest experience has propelled our growth throughout the last two decades,” said Mark Dufresne, CEO of Ashley Global Retail. “I am confident our brand promise and distinct product offering will continue to drive Ashley HomeStore’s success in the future.”
