What’s happening: Steger’s Furniture has added a new 50,000-square-foot furniture and mattress location in Peoria, Ill. in the North Point Shopping Center. The estimated grand opening of the new store will be in the Summer of 2023.
Why it matters: The new location will help bring over 20 jobs to the local community and will ensure that the roots of the company stay in the Pekin and Peoria region for years to come. A commitment that doesn’t go unnoticed to third-generation owner Jack Steger.
“I am proud to have raised my family in this community and to have welcomed Abbey and Bryan into the business,” he says. “Family businesses and locally owned operations are at the heart of what makes a community grow and we are excited to bring that growth to Peoria.”
Lou Steger, 94-year-old, and second generation owner says, “I’m proud to see the legacy continue in Peoria and I am looking forward to the grand opening this summer.”
Abbey Tilstra, fourth generation and VP of Merchandising, adds, “We see the new Peoria store as an extension of our current location. There will be similar product offerings and the same great service. We are excited to offer a large mattress footprint, outlet center, and an all-new custom design center.”
