PITTSBURGH — Levin Furniture has been saved from going out of business.
Former owner and president Robert Levin has announced he is coming out of retirement and will be acquiring the Ohio and Pennsylvania assets of Levin Furniture and Wolf Furniture through a court restructuring of the parent company Art Van Furniture, LLC.
"I'm coming back as the owner of Levin Furniture for the employees who were at risk of losing their jobs," Levin said in a statement. "They are the most loyal, dedicated, and hardworking people I've ever known. It will be a privilege and honor to once again lead this company as we prepare to celebrate 100 years in the furniture and mattress business."
Levin Furniture was founded in 1920 in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania by Robert Levin's grandparents. It has several Northeast Ohio locations, including Avon, Akron, North Olmsted, Mentor, Middleburg Heights, and North Canton.
The company will celebrate its 100th anniversary later this year.
"I especially want to thank all of our loyal customers and assure them that we will continue to provide them with the services they've come to expect from us," Levin added. "I also want to assure them that all of their deposits and purchases are safe and secure. Our customers are the lifeblood of our business and we are truly grateful for their continued support."
