Princeton, W.Va.---Friday, November 1st at 10 a.m. Grand Home Furnishings cut the ribbon and opened three new stores in West Virginia; Beckley, Princeton and Summersville.

West Virginia Attorney General, Patrick Morrissey was on hand at the Beckley store to welcome Grand and to cut the ribbon. The first 600 customers at the store in Princeton were given "Duck Dynasty" door mats.

The Roanoke, Virginia-based retailer of furniture and mattresses already has a West Virginia location in Lewisburg and had been in a different location in Beckley.

In June Grand announced the acquisition of the John Eye's Big Sandy stores in Beckley, Lewisburg, Princeton and Summersville. The John Eye location in Lewisburg was closed. In Beckley Grand moved into the former John Eye location on Industrial Drive leaving a smaller location where it had been next to Sam's Club since 2009. The Princeton location is on Oakvale Road. Summersville is located just off U.S. Rt. 19.

Beginning in August, the locations Grand acquired, underwent an extensive remodeling. The Beckley store in particular, due to its large size, required the most work with a dramatic interior transformation.

While John Eye's Big Sandy sold furniture, mattresses, appliances and televisions, Grand Home Furnishings retails furniture and mattresses only. Visitors to the former John Eye locations in Beckley, Princeton and Summersville will be greeted by a new appearance to the store interiors and a greatly expanded selection of furniture and mattresses.

This brings the total stores for the retailer to 19. Locations in Virginia are Bristol, Charlottesville, Christiansburg, Harrisonburg, Lexington, Lynchburg, Roanoke (3), Smith Mountain Lake, Waynesboro, Winchester and Wise. Tennessee locations are Johnson City and Kingsport. Combined employment at all locations is more than 600.

Grand Home Furnishings celebrated its 102nd year in 2013. The family-owned company has been in the same family since 1945. Second and third generation family members are actively involved in the business.

Visitors to the company's stores are always greeted at the door with a frosty Coca-Cola in the old-fashioned glass bottle. This has been a company trademark since 1953. Last year the company gave out well over 1,250,000 Cokes and related beverages. In 2013 Coca-Cola formally recognized Grand for the 60-year tradition.

The company's growth is often attributed to its emphasis on customer service. As a family operation, understanding that furniture and mattresses are an important family decision, Grand made it a policy to ensure customer satisfaction. This is backed up by a 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee and Low Price Guarantee. The company also prides itself on rapid delivery with some of its trading areas even receiving Same Day Delivery. Mattress purchases $597 or more are delivered for free. All deliveries are made within an unusually large 100 mile radius of the stores.
