Furniture World News on

Zocalo® announced the opening of Chapter 1’s Zocalo Living™ gallery in Hartford, CT. The 4,000 sq. ft. gallery gives customers a chance to experience Zocalo case goods and leather upholstery in an exclusive setting. The retailer has also dedicated floor space to Zocalo’s teen brand, Z Generation®. “After having so much success with Zocalo, I decided having a gallery store would be the best move for Chapter 1 and our customers,” owner Ron Smith said, on his decision to open the first Zocalo Living free-standing gallery. The process of dedicating an entire store to Zocalo has been a smooth transition for Smith. “Everybody loves it,” he said. “With Zocalo’s service, we’re always being taken care of.” Chapter 1’s Zocalo Living gallery carries the majority of Zocalo’s collections.
