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. Hiking blocks to an office after fighting traffic is not logical. Having office buildings around the loop, 465 and in cities in surrounding counties is logical. In other words, counties around Indianapolis need office buildings like Keystone, Meridian, Michigan Road/College Park and then no need to go downtown. Financial, legal, professional businesses don't need the downtown when Carmel, Fishers, North Indy are building their own central office buildings close to the professionals. The more Hamilton, Boone county attract professionals, the less downtown is relevant. Highrises have no meaning if they don't have adequate parking for professionals and clients. Great for show, but not exactly downtown Chicago, no lakefront, no river to speak of, and no view from highrises of lake Michigan and the magnificent mile. Indianapolis has no view.

    2. "The car count, THE SERIES, THE RACING, THE RATINGS, THE ATTENDANCE< AND THE MANAGEMENT, EVERY season is sub-par." ______________ You're welcome!

    3. that it actually looked a lot like Sato v Franchitti @Houston. And judging from Dario's marble mouthed presentation providing "color", I'd say that he still suffers from his Dallara inflicted head injury._______Considering that the Formula E cars weren't going that quickly at that exact moment, that was impressive air time. But I guess we shouldn't be surprised, as Dallara is the only car builder that needs an FAA certification for their cars. But flying Dallaras aren't new. Just ask Dan Wheldon.

    4. Does anyone know how and where I can get involved and included?

    5. While the data supporting the success of educating our preschoolers is significant, the method of reaching this age group should be multi-faceted. Getting business involved in support of early childhood education is needed. But the ways for businesses to be involved are not just giving money to programs and services. Corporations and businesses educating their own workforce in the importance of sending a child to kindergarten prepared to learn is an alternative way that needs to be addressed. Helping parents prepare their children for school and be involved is a proven method for success. However, many parents are not sure how to help their children. The public is often led to think that preschool education happens only in schools, daycare, or learning centers but parents and other family members along with pediatricians, librarians, museums, etc. are valuable resources in educating our youngsters. When parents are informed through work lunch hour workshops in educating a young child, website exposure to exceptional teaching ideas that illustrate how to encourage learning for fun, media input, and directed community focus on early childhood that is when a difference will be seen. As a society we all need to look outside the normal paths of educating and reaching preschoolers. It is when methods of involving the most important adult in a child's life - a parent, that real success in educating our future workers will occur. The website www.ifnotyouwho.org is free and illustrates activities that are research-based, easy to follow and fun! Businesses should be encouraging their workers to tackle this issue and this website makes it easy for parents to be involved. The focus of preschool education should be to inspire all the adults in a preschooler's life to be aware of what they can do to prepare a child for their future life. Fortunately we now know best practices to prepare a child for a successful start to school. Is the business community ready to be involved in educating preschoolers when it becomes more than a donation but a challenge to their own workers?
