(Manchester, CT) May 18, 2010 – Bob's Discount Furniture today announces the opening of its newest store locations in Secaucus, NJ and Flushing, NY, now bringing the total to 38 stores located throughout New England, New Jersey and New York.

Bob’s Discount Furniture has always been dedicated to offering its customers great furniture at unbeatable prices.

The new store location in Secaucus will bring 120 jobs to the local community and Flushing will bring 75 new jobs to the local community.
“It is with much anticipated excitement that we are kicking off our Memorial Weekend by opening our 37th and 38th new store in Secaucus and Flushing,” said Bob Kaufman, president, Bob’s Discount Furniture. “The entire Bob’s team looks forward to offering the new communities and partner with the communities through our bobs outreach program.”
“We are very thankful for the generous donation to support the youth programs in the town of Secaucus,” said Mike Gonnelli, Mayor of Secaucus, NJ. “We welcome Bob’s Discount Furniture and its team to our community and wish them great success.”
Grand opening festivities will kick-off at both locations on Thursday, May 27 with ribbon-cutting ceremonies. Events and activities will run throughout the Memorial Day weekend. As part of its entrance into Secaucus and Flushing, through its Bob’s Outreach program, Bob’s Discount Furniture will be making $10,000 in donations to youth-focused organizations in these two communities.
