A Massive Furniture Store Is Now Closing After 100 Years

A massive furniture store is now closing after 100 years in business with no plans to keep operations running, sources confirm.

Union Furniture Company first opened in 1912, four months after the sinking of the Titanic.

Despite shifts in ownership throughout the years, the Becker family was able to keep the store’s doors open in Macon, Georgia, just over 80 miles south of Atlanta, until recently.

Simon Becker, the grandson of the store founder and his namesake, told LOCAL CBS affiliate WMAZ that he has been with the company since 1984.

“I spent 40 years here,” Becker said.

“My father and my uncle before me, my grandfather before that.”

He revealed to the outlet that approximately nine months ago, he decided he would need to close the store.

“But I don’t have anybody following me, so it was going to happen either now or sometime in the relatively near future anyway,” Becker said.

For 112 years, the Union Furniture Company has sold couches, coffee tables, washers, and more.

Becker told the outlet that the store has had repeat customers that go back 20, 30, and even 40 years.

“We’ve had the grandchildren of people we’ve done business with, do business with,” he said.

He called the decision to close “difficult” and “very emotional”, reports The-Sun.

Becker is planning to host a closing sale at the Macon store starting on Wednesday, April 24.

Everything in store is set to be sold with discounts as high as 50% off.

Once everything is gone, Becker said the store will officially close.

He told the outlet that he and his family are grateful to the Macon community that has been their home for decades.

“So thankful to the community for everything that they’ve done for us and we’ve done for them as well,” he said.

“Providing furniture for generations of people in the Macon community.”

A famous donut shop with 100 stores now closes a major location, leaving customers mourning the loss on Facebook.

Duck Donuts is set to close its location in Tallahassee, Florida on April 21, reports The US Sun.

The first and only Duck Donuts shop in Tallahassee, Florida is heading for closure less than a year after its opening.

The 1,500-square-foot shop opened on June 24 last year in Capital Plaza along Thomasville Road in place of a dance studio.

The donut destination made the sad announcement via a post on Facebook.

“It is with heavy hearts we are announcing the closing of our store.

Sunday, April 21 will be our last day open.

Please stop in, wish our hard working staff well, and of course, enjoy our tasty creations while you can.

Tallahassee, you have been a joy to serve.”

Shop owner Timothy McGrew, a Florida State University graduate and Army veteran, said the location’s revenue was insufficient to support continued operation, per local ABC affiliate WTXL.

The franchisee ran the shop with his wife, Renee, offering customers made-to-order donuts, breakfast sandwiches, milkshakes, coffee, and more.

Duck Donuts was created in 2007 in the Outer Banks of North Carolina by founder Russ DiGilio.

The company has over 125 locations in the US and around the world.

The nearest Duck Donuts to Tallahassee is in Jacksonville – around 160 miles.
