RH Outlet opening in former Barnes & Noble spot

August 3, 2018

RH Outlet, part of Restoration Hardware, is opening at the corner of Telegraph and Maple in Bloomfield Township in the former Barnes & Noble location, selling discounted furniture.

 

According to Andrea Bibby, development coordinator planner for Bloomfield Township, the new store, at 6575 Telegraph Road, will be about 15,000 square feet, and is designed as a permanent store, not a pop-up location. She said they are planning to open within in the next two weeks, and have begun working on interior build outs.

 

Restoration Hardware is an American home furnishings company headquartered in Corte Madera, California. They have a high-end location at Somerset Collection which specializes in “exceptionally well merchandised world of high quality textiles, furniture, lighting, bathware, hardware and amusements. These are products of lasting value, classic design and imbued all with a brand that speaks to superb taste and a free spirited individuality,” according to their website.

 

This RH Outlet, of which there are about 30 around the country, is the first in Michigan, and will sell Restoration Hardware furniture at a 20 to 60 percent discount. Merchandise available at other RH Outlets include sofas, sectionals, beds, nightstands, dining room tables and chairs, accent tables, outdoor seating, and bathroom vanities, but not art and accessories. Some may be damaged or discontinued items.

 

After a presentation by architect Victor Saroki of Saroki Architects in Birmingham at the township's design review board on Wednesday, August 1, Bibby said shoppers will be able to buy what's on the floor and either carry it out with them or get the furniture delivered, but will not be able to have orders placed.

 

In addition, an outside space just south of the store will sell seasonal merchandise, such as outdoor tables and chairs.

 

“It's a good use for the space,” Bibby said, noting the store is not expected to take up a lot of parking in the lot.

 

Barnes & Noble closed in 2006.
