West Virginia retailer closing after more than 100 years

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Pugh Furniture here is closing after more than 100 years of business according to reports from WCHS TV.

The family-owned retailer has been in business since 1917, originally as a wholesaler. It transitioned into retail in the 1970s. Owner Beth Pugh told WCHS that she’s nearing retirement age, which led to the decision to close the store. Rising costs also played a role.

According to a Facebook post, Pugh has around $1 million worth of inventory to liquidate as part of going out of business.
