Furniture store expands warehouse space

Furniture retailer Atlantic Bedding & Furniture’s local franchise has leased a 7,500-square-foot warehouse on Aero Drive, expanding its storage capacity following a jump in its local business.

Atlantic will now occupy the warehouse space at 61 Aero, on the border between Amherst and Cheektowaga, in a building owned by Anthony Trusso, said broker Eric Tudor and Patricia Collins of Coldwell Banker Commercial Meridian, who handled the lease.

The Charleston, S.C.-based company, which has 30 individually owned and operated stores, was founded in 2006 and opened its Buffalo store in 2011. Its local franchisee, Chris Schunk, operates his furniture showroom at 6515 Transit Road, near Genesee Street, in Bowmansville. He has experienced “a jump in business” that necessitated the extra space, the brokers said.
