HOM Furniture Opens World Rugs
September 18, 2006,
HOM Furniture has opened its first area rug store and has revamped rug departments across the chain, aiming to make the most out of a growing category.
Like HOM, World Rugs is value-oriented. But the value extends across a broader product line and price spectrum, with prices starting at $39 for a 2 by 3-foot size and ranging up to $7,000 for a 10 by 14 vegetable-dyed rug.
The rug department in existing HOM stores have been renamed World Rugs and expanded to an average of about 3,000 square feet, with new display fixtures and better, color-corrected lighting. The chain as a whole does about $175 million in sales.
