For those of you who just tuned in, here is what has since transpired:
In the 50's - Garfield Dinettes opens up on Garfield Ave. Jersey City, New Jersey specializing in manufacturing and retail of Dinette sets and it was called Garfield Dinettes after the street name.
In the 60's - Garfield moves to the building opposite Hudson Mall in the building right in the middle of the jug handle and occupies the entire 20,000 sq. ft. building for about 15 years.
On October 1st 1983 - Garfield Dinettes was taken over by its current owners and they operated out of the same building for another 17 years. The manufacturing part of the business was gradually phased out and later was turned into a full line furniture store.
On November 1998 – The Company moves to the huge blue (Now grey) building opposite Pathmark right next to Home Depot along Route 440 in a 15,000 sq. ft space. This is where Garfield Home Furnishing Center was born. It was a very busy store with thousands of happy customers. Garfield Home Furnishing Center conducted a business that thrived with thousands of happy customers for 10 years until the Lease ended.
In 2011 - Garfield moves to the Old Siperstien building on Montgomery Street, downtown Jersey City.
Unfortunately this location proved to be a challenge due to parking, shipping and receiving, accessibility and visibility.
On January 15th, 2013 - Garfield moves into the old Newman's Furniture Store at 481 West Side Avenue. Newman's Furniture Store, like Garfield, was a thriving Business with good reputation in Jersey City for over 50 years. Unfortunately after many years of excellent service Newman’s Furniture Store had closed its doors. In time, the space became available to Garfield Home furnishing Center to continue the legend in a busy area of Jersey City.
January 16th, 2013 - The new location on West Side Avenue undergoes a renovation and Garfield Furnishing Center should be up and running within a few months. Stay tuned for updates on our Grand Opening.
March 21st. 2013 - Doors open for business and there will be an official Grand Opening sometime in Mid Spring 2013.
Garfield Home Furnishing Center is proud to have served at least three generations with the highest degree of customer satisfaction. We encourage the spreading of the news of our Grand Opening through word of mouth and the social media channels as many of the past customers will be very happy to hear of our reopening. Garfield has survived the ups and downs of business and economy for over the past 60 years. Now do you believe that cats have nine lives?!!
