Furniture World News on

Rhodes, Inc. has authorized DJM Asset Management of Melville, New York, to market and dispose of 16 of the company's owned and leased properties throughout Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Georgia. The company operated in these markets as both Rhodes Furniture and as John M. Smyth's Homemakers Furniture. On November 4, 2004, Rhodes filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta division. As part of the closing of Rhodes mid-west retail operations, they will be selling their warehouse facilities located in Louisville, KY and Hazelwood, MO. The Louisville, KY facility is a 112,804/sf building which sits on 8.57 acres of land and the Hazelwood, MO facility is a 164,000/sf building which sits on 9.16 acres of land. Both of the properties are multipurpose facilities with Office, Finished Showroom, Warehouse and Distribution spaces. In addition, they will sell their regional distribution warehouse located at 3380 Florence Road in Powder Springs, GA. This facility is a 376,427/sf building which sits on 15.38 acres of land. "We expect there to be strong interest in this group of retail store closings, especially Joliet, IL and other Chicagoland markets which are very difficult to penetrate," stated Andy Graiser, Co-CEO of DJM. "We expect quite a number of interested parties to submit offers to purchase leases." "The properties being marketed, owned and leased, represent an excellent opportunity for both users and investors to acquire some highly sought after real estate.
