Hhgregg In Milwaukee-Area To Be Replaced By Bob’s Discount Furniture

CONNECTICUT, USA: Bob’s Discount Furniture will replace all three hhgregg stores in the Milwaukee-area after the closing of the electronic retail store.

Hhgregg announced the closing of five Wisconsin locations that includes stores in Brown Deer, Greenfield, and Regency Mall in Racine. The Indianapolis-based hhgregg has been in the Wisconsin market since 2012.

All three hhgregg stores in the Milwaukee-area locations are in different stages of negotiations in the take-over process. According to municipal officials, the stores are expected to open by the holiday season.

Bob’s Discount Furniture has locations in the East Coast and throughout the Midwest. The national retailer does not have stores in Wisconsin at the moment.

“Having another tenant ready to fill the void of a major retailer is extremely positive. The Village and mall ownership are aggressive in finding new opportunities to ensure the shipping center continues to succeed,” said Village of Brown Deer community development director, Nate Piotrowski.
