MANCHESTER, Conn. – Feb. 11, 2015 – Bob’s Discount Furniture plans to continue expanding its fast-growing Pennsylvania retail operations by opening two stores in the Pittsburgh area during this year’s second quarter. The Connecticut-based furniture retailer has leased spaces for a new store in Robinson Township, 12 miles west of Pittsburgh, and at another location in Monroeville, located 15 miles east of the city.

The two new Pittsburgh-area locations will bring Bob’s high-quality, affordable home furnishings to an even wider audience in and around the state, which will soon be served by seven stores in the Greater Philadelphia area and another store in Wilkes-Barre, Penn., all of which have opened within the past year.

“We’re pleased to be further extending our retail footprint into the Pittsburgh area,” said Bob Kaufman, Bob’s president emeritus and co-founder. “Pennsylvania is a high-priority market for us, and we look forward to opening even more stores there in the months ahead.”
