“This is an up and coming neighborhood, so it seemed like a good place to relocate to,” said Stephen Young, one of the owners of Youngs, a furniture business that was founded in 1931 by his grandparents. Stephen and his cousin, Jon are business partners.
For about 30 years, the business was located on Free Street. Then it moved out to the Maine Mall. However, the 1 Diamond Street, East Bayside location, has served as a warehouse for three years now. It was time to consolidate and put the showroom, office space and warehouse into one location. The total space is 22,000 sq. ft.with roughly half of that dedicated to the showroom. Offices and a warehouse occupy the other half of the site.
The new showroom will be open seven days a week from about 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. Summer hours may be more flexible. There is plenty of parking at 1 Diamond Street.
