The Ashley Furniture HomeStore location in Carmel will close later this month after the owner and landlord failed to come to terms on a lease renewal. Ashley locations in Greenwood and Avon will remain open, and store owner Chris Caprio says he's scouting for a new Ashley location on the north side. He said the Carmel store, which opened in 2002 at 2003 E. Greyhound Pass, will hold a liquidation sale starting Jan. 14. The Indianapolis-area stores are run by an independent affiliate of Ashley, which in 2007 passed Wal-Mart to become the top furniture and bedding retailer in the U.S.

  • Westfield
    While Ashely's address is Carmel it is actually in Westfield. With Construction to be completed on Keystone at 116th and Carmel Drive this year, one would hope management at Merchants Square would get creative to land Ashely
  • sale!
    sale!
    • No more home equity?
      Maybe all is not well in Hamilton County. Now that the "easy money" era of home equity loans is over, will empty living rooms be back in vogue in Carmel and Fishers?
    • Too Much Furniture?
      Just how much more furniture do people need, anyway?
    • Rumor
      I heard that they were being offered better lease deals near Castleton Mall in Indianapolis. They have been looking at the old Linens and Things location.
    • Furniture on-line
      I have been buying my latest pieces of furniture on-line, and I recommended to everyone. You can "go" to several stores in minutes and compare them.
    • Buyer Beware
      Just went there this morning, and they were trying to sell a Dining Room set at $250 higher (even after negotiating) than one of the stores not closing (I called the other store from this store). And then after bringing this to their attention, they only offered $50 less than what I could buy it for brand new from the other Ashley store (instead of getting the showroom model from this store).

      So, if you go in... beware. If you don't think you're getting a good deal, you probably aren't. Call their Avon or Greenwood store to see what they're selling it for.
    • Great for potential customers
      Good for Ashley. Be aware that if you buy furniture there, they order it. You might get it in 4 to 6 weeks, you might not. If you are not satisfied with the time frame, color, size, there are NO REFUNDS. Case goods like bedrooms, lack protective finish on the wood, the last parts of good furniture finishing process is skipped, regardless of what they say.
    • Carmel should close
      I had a horrible experience with the General Manager at the Carmel store. They should close it or fire him...
    • bad customer service at the carmel store
      Last weekend we visited the Ashley store after receiving a flyer tht said they were closing.We went in hoping for a reasonable deal,but it was too expensive.When the lady frm their customer service asked why we didnt make a purchase tht day,we let her knw tht the prices were off the roof.She made rude comments at us.Very unkind.

    1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

    2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

    3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

    4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

    5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
