Lebow Furniture to Close

The Main Street fixture will be shutting its doors after several decades of service to the Royersford community.

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.

The last thing Royersford needs is more rental units. It is already filled with slum lord rentals that aren't inspected or regulated by the Borough at all and cause the police department a ton of trouble.

Was sad when the founder of Lebow's passed away, was a great company then. Afterwards however the son was very rude, and the furniture was over priced. Used to be a great part of the community but now it just seems to be another family out for greed. I heard horror stories from old employees. Too bad he couldn't be more like his father

I used to buy my furniture there until the owner died. I hate to say it, but I was just there on Friday and was telling the son how I was sad to see the store close and he said he said thank you, and then said he didn't have time to talk to me. So... I don't have time to buy anything. Sad.

There was one employee who was so rude, I would call to make sure he wasn't there before I went over.
