Ashley Furniture Homestore's new retail outlet store is located on Crossroads Parkway in Romeoville.

Ashley Furniture Homestore has opened an outlet store in the Romeoville warehouse building in which it also has a distribution center and regional office.

A ribbon-cutting for the new retail operation was held Thursday at the 1045 Crossroads Parkway. Because of the industrial nature of its location, the facility has a high-profile spot that's visible from Interstate 55.

According to store officials, it's the first time the company has set up an outlet store as part of a distribution center. Customers will have the option to both purchase and pick up items at the time of purchase.

In addition to discounted furniture, it also sells mattresses at reduced prices.

Locally, Ashley Furniture Homestores are also located in Joliet, Bolingbrook, Mokena and Naperville.

The new store will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
