Haverty Furniture Cos. Inc.is expanding in Maryland and opening a new furniture showroom in Towson next week.
Havertys will open Thursday, June 28 at Towson Place in the former Filene's Basementspot. It is the fourth in Maryland and the seventh in the larger Baltimore/Washington region, with stores in Columbia, Rockville and Bowie.
The more than 100-year-old Atlanta-based chain now runs more than 100 furniture stores in 17 states, featuring its own brand of Havertys Collections. It considers itself a top retailer in the middle to upper-middle segment.
Clarence H. Smith president and chief executive of the company, said many of the pieces in the Towson showroom were selected specifically for the Baltimore-area market. The showroom will be arranged in room settings and offer decorating ideas. The store will be giving away a $2,500 furniture shopping spree during the grand opening.
