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. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

    2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

    3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

    4. Exciting times in Carmel.

    5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
