The sofa superstore put out a statement Thursday that it is closing its doors for good. The struggling housing market is getting much of the blame for that decision.
The Charleston Post and Courier reports the last two remaining stores will shut down next week and their inventories liquidated.
The Charleston-based chain operated in the Lowcountry for 20 years. But in the last four years it has become known for the devastating fire that destroyed its flagship store and where nine Charleston firefighters died battling that blaze in June of 2007.
It is said to have been the greatest loss of firefighter lives since 9/11.
Earlier this year, the sofa superstore agreed to pay 1.9 million dollars to finally settle all the claims brought by the families of those firefighters.
