A new furniture store has replaced an established furniture store on Route 19 in Peters Township.
Loves Furniture and Mattress opened its Peters facility last weekend, with hours Saturday and Sunday. It is operating in a space previously occupied by Levin Furniture.
That store is the first of three Loves locations that will open first in the Pittsburgh region. The firm had a grand opening Wednesday for its location at The Pointe in North Fayette, and has plans for a store in Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland County – the original home of Levin.
Based in Royal Oak, Mich., Loves launched only this year. The company is owned by U.S. Assets Inc. of Dallas.
The company said in a news release “Loves combines stylish, high-quality products and clear pricing to make it easy for shoppers to love where they live.”
Levin, founded in 1920, was sold to Art Van Furniture in 2017. Art Van filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in early March, and decided to close its stores and terminate its employees. Robert Levin attempted to reacquire his company earlier this year, then bought back 17 of the 33 stores he sold and reopened them. Those stores are in the Pittsburgh and Cleveland markets, and some are mattress stores.
