Just Cabinets expands with new mattress and youth areas

The 15-store Harrisburg, Pa.-based retailer looks to add the new departments to other locations

DICKSON CITY, Pa. — Just Cabinets Furniture & More has opened a larger, updated showroom for this greater Scranton, Pa., market and its first featuring dedicated mattress and youth bedroom areas.

The Harrisburg, Pa.-based retailer opened the 18,000-square-foot store on Commerce Boulevard late last month partnering with two area businesses — Maiolatesi Winery and Basilico’s Pizza — for a wine tasting and pizza during the grand opening event.

The new store is Just Cabinets’ northern-most showroom and first new store of the year, though the company has its eye on expansion into the Baltimore and Philadelphia markets, President Ted Bernstein told Furniture/Today in an email. The retailer previously served the Scranton market with a store in Keyser Oaks shopping center.

In addition to Pennsylvania locations, Just Cabinets operates a showroom in Mays Landing, N.J., two stores in Delaware and two Maryland showrooms in Glen Burnie and Aberdeen.

While the company has been carrying bedding and youth bedroom furniture for some time, the Dickson City showroom is the first with dedicated space for the categories. The mattress gallery features in-stock goods from Sealy, King Koil and the company’s own HealthCare memory foam mattress line. Youth suppliers include Trendwood and Lifestyle Enterprise.

Bernstein said Just Cabinets is “thrilled with the outcome” of the new area and will be incorporating them into other stores eventually.

Other key furniture suppliers to the company include A-America, Klaussner, Jofran and Magnussen Home.

In a release, Bernstein said the primarily midpriced retailer prides itself on its value proposition, “beating our competition every day by 10-20%.” In addition to the bigger and brighter furniture and bedding areas, the new showroom includes an expanded kitchen showroom featuring cabinetry, countertops and appliances.

“We look to continue our long-standing commitment to our valued Scranton area customers,” Bernstein said in release.

Sandy Schaner, administrative assistant for Just Cabinets, said the retailer has been happy with the early consumer response and how the store turned out. “It was a great weekend,” she said.

The company declined to disclose sales projections for the new store and chain.
