JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (WTAJ) – Park Home Furniture is opening its second location in Johnstown in the coming weeks.
On Tuesday, September 20, the store held a ribbon cutting at 600 Galleria Drive. Store officials and county and township leaders commemorated the store in the new community and welcomed them with open arms.
The 50,000 square foot space was chosen from Wolf Furniture’s former location on Scalp Ave. The Altoona-based furniture company is eager to help residents of Cambria and surrounding counties.
People will enter the showroom to see a variety of furniture, appliances and mattresses to suit every taste. Park Home Furniture co-owner Travis Muccitelli said the store took six months to develop.
“Park furniture was created in 1940 in Altoona. My family has had it since the late 70s,” Muccitelli said. We have grown the business over the years. Now we’re opening the store in Johnstown, and we’re really excited about it.
When the store first opened in the 1940s, it aimed to provide quality furniture at affordable prices. Tony Belskey has worked at Wolf Furniture for 37 years and is excited to be part of this new Park Home site as Store Manager.
Belskey believes the family business will meet the needs of Johnstown customers. Including customizations and selection of branded furniture, appliances and mattresses.
“I think just coming to the store, huge selection. You can customize many of your products,” Belskey said. “It’s a family business. This family that got into this business to open a store like they did in Altoona is fantastic. It means a lot.”
