"The new Morris Home [Center] gives consumers one-stop shopping convenience," said Larry Klaben, president and CEO of Morris Furniture Co. "Shoppers are able to see the area's largest selection of upholstery, leather sofas, dining rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, mattresses and HDTVs all in one place. Visitors can enter any one of the four exterior entrances and visit four stores and the Morris Back Room through mall-like inter-store connectivity for a truly unique shopping experience."

The showroom is organized into lifestyle environments, displaying furniture collections together by style. An estimated $5,000,000 was invested in remodeling, fixtures and showroom inventory, according to the company.
