The last day for a midstate furniture store is this week.
The Wolf Furniture store at 4661 Lindle Road in Swatara Township near Sheetz and Chick-fil-A and across from the High Pointe Commons shopping center will close on Monday.
Signs at the store say that Monday, Nov. 30 is the last day “of the former location of Wolf Furniture.”
Michigan-based Art Van Furniture, the owner of Wolf Furniture filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 8. On April 7, the companies bankruptcy cases were converted to liquidation cases under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.
Under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, Chapter 7 may be used by businesses or individuals. A portion of the debtors assets is liquidated and distributed among creditors by a trustee to satisfy debts.
A liquidation sale at the store has been taking place for months.
Art Van Furniture acquired Wolf Furniture in 2017 as well as Pennsylvania-based Levin Furniture.
Altoona-based Wolf Furniture remained family-owned until the acquisition. The company was founded in 1902.
Another former Wolf Furniture store at Gateway Square in Hampden Township is now occupied by Regency Furniture Showrooms, a company with furniture stores in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The new store opened this month at 75 Gateway Drive.
And it’s not the only furniture store that has opened in Hampden Township. Ashley HomeStore has opened in the former Dick’s Sporting Goods store at 5950 Carlisle Pike. The store is relocating from 6484 Carlisle Pike in Silver Spring Township. Dick’s Sporting Goods previously relocated to the Capital City Mall in Lower Allen Township.
