When owners Robert and Norma Goldman decided it was time to retire after 58 years of running House of Bedrooms and House of Bedrooms Kids, 1700 S.Telegraph Road and 1716 S. Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township, it became the end of an era, with the two stores beginning liquidation sales. “It goes until we’re out of furniture. I have no idea when we’ll close,” said manager Ken Ciotti. House of Bedrooms, which originally opened in 1960, expanded to House of Bedrooms Kids in 1997, offering the largest showcase for nursery, youth and kids bedroom furniture in the state. Ciotti said the store currently is a full line furniture store, with a focus on premium bedroom collections from well-known brands like Ashley, Aspenhome, Bernhardt, Durham, Hooker, Howard Miller, Kincaid, Legacy Classic, Lexington, Serta, Stanley, Universal, Vaughan-Bassett, and Whittier Wood, as well as a wide range of Amish furniture and leather upholstery items and handmade Oriental rugs. Ciotti said discounts are available in every department during the sale. In addition, all three properties – which includes a warehouse on Franklin Road in Pontiac – are for lease or purchase as well.
