Safavieh Doubles Warehouse Space
January 14, 2008,
Upscale are rug company Safavieh more than doubled its warehouse space in Pennsylvania with the purchase of a 320,000-square-foot facility in Easton, supplementing its 250,000-sq.-ft. facility in Allentown.
"We have experienced significant sales increases since the launch of our Thomas O'Brien and Martha Stewart licensed rug collections, and in the past year demand for Safavieh programmed rug collections has broken records in all retail channels," said Arash Yaraghi, company principal. "The new facility will allow us room to expand our current portfolio of designer collections in 2008."
Yaraghi said Easton is equipped with state-of-the-art rug rack systems and has separate sections for furniture storage.
