To The Editor:
Ashley Furniture Homestores recently celebrated their 31st Anniversary, but because of the recent advertising on the closing of the Malone store, we have had an out pouring of interest in confirming whether or not we are closing all our stores.
This couldnt be further from the truth. For many years we have had the three stores located in Massena, Potsdam and Malone. Years have passed and we realized that our time to retire is fast approaching when we would need to turn the reins over to our daughter, Aimee Lemieux, and gradually step down from some of the responsibilities.
With the Malone location being the furthest out, and knowing that many of our customers from that area already shop at the Ashley Furniture Homestore in Massena and Potsdam, we decided that the Malone location would be the one we would close.
With the use of advertising through radio, newspapers and television, we will continue to keep our past and future customers in the Malone area informed of all the specials that Ashley Furniture Homestores offers on a regular basis.
After 12 years we have formed a loyal base of customers in the Malone area, and we will continue to service them through the other twostores.
Through the years we have not only formed a following of customers but we have also formed many lasting friendships. We want to tell all our Malone customers how much we appreciate their past patronage and look forward to seeing them in either our Potsdam or Massena Homestores.
Our last day in Malone for picking up furniture will be Oct. 12. After the 12th, furniture can be picked up at the Potsdam warehouse.
Thank you very, very much.
John and Linda Bartlett and Aimee Lemieux
