Leon's Opens In Columbia

This article first appeared in issue 13, and was written by Linda Waggener.

Leon's Furniture Center

Leon's Furniture Center, one of the fastest growing chains in the region, is now open in the Wal Mart shopping center in the space formerly occupied by People's Department Store.

Among his locations are Berea, London and Williamsburg, with more planned in the near future.

Leon Farris, owner, says his sales philosophy is, "to sell high end furinture at middle level prices."

The store is laid out in groupings by style, complete with paintings and, in the future, lamps, to compliment the furnishings.

Regional manager Frank Brown is making his home in Columbia to oversee this store, and as it becomes established he will help start up others in the area.

Store hours are in their ad at right.
