Lebow Furniture, a mainstay of Royersford's local business community, will be closing its doors after 63 years.
The store was started in 1949 by Chick and Adele Lebow and is currently run by president Roger Lebow and vice president Susan Lebow Moran. The business has always been family-owned and operated and currently has a staff of 30 employees.
Lebow and Moran advised their business contacts in an e-mail today that while they will be closing, they will remain open for some time as they gradually reduce their inventory.
The store will only be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Moran told Patch in a phone call that they had just informed the employees of the closure today, February 4.
Lebow said in the e-mail that he and Moran "have both enjoyed the business and the people we have grown to know."
"It has been a lot of hard work and yet we have been more than rewarded by all of the relationships that have come along the way," Lebow wrote.
