Les Schwab to open third Medford store
Les Schwab Tire Center plans to open its third Medford store next month.
The 25,000-square-foot store on Highway 62 will feature 10 work bays. Construction began this spring and is in the final stages and the store is expected to open in mid-September.
The company plans to hire 15-20 people initially. The store will be managed by Jerry Reeves, who now manages the company's store in Red Bluff, Calif.
Oak Furniture Outlet not part of building sale
Rombach's Oak Furniture Outlet is not closing, despite the impression some got from reports that another downtown business, Downtown Merchants Mall, is closing.
An offer has been made to purchase the building at 117 S. Central Ave. that houses the Merchants Mall, an antique store. That business will close Sept. 4.
Though Bill Rombach owns both the Merchants Mall and the Oak Furniture Outlet, only the Merchants Mall is closing. Rombach plans to continue operating the furniture store.
