Furniture chain opening Dayton-area store

Bob’s Discount Furniture opened its first store in the Dayton area this week.

The new store is at 2859 Miamisburg Centerville Road, where Toys “R” Us closed over a year ago.

This will be the first Ohio location for the Manchester, Connecticut-headquartered company.

Plans for the new store were first announced in October.

“We noticed a demand in the market for a unique shopping experience that provides a wide variety of quality furnishings – including living room furniture, bedroom furniture, dining room furniture, office furniture and home accents – at everyday low prices,” a spokesman previously said.

There are 124 other stores and 22 outlet locations in 18 states.

Another furniture store, Fairfield-based Furniture Fair opened in November in the former Beavercreek Toys “R” Us.

Furniture stores have been expanding in recent months in the Dayton area.
