Founded in 1963 by Gordon “Gordy” Hartunian, ABC Warehouse has grown from one location in Center Line to more than 40 stores. The business is now planning to expand with a new ABC Warehouse, 2062 S. Rochester Road, in Rochester Hills. A building permit for the address was filed with the city in July. A spokesman for ABC Warehouse wasn’t available for comment. The family-owned and operated chain is among the largest retailers in the Midwest, offering home appliances, electronics, mattresses, furniture and more. The company employs more than 1,000 people in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
