CARY — A discount furniture retailer is taking over the old Crossroads Ford Truck showroom off Buck Jones Road.
The 80,000-square-foot space near the intersection of Walnut Street and Buck Jones Road has been vacant since 2006, when Crossroads merged several different operations in Cary into one large building off of Walnut Street.
When it does open, the Furniture 4 Less Superstore will become the third Furniture 4 Less in the area. The chain also has locations in Raleigh on Spring Forest Road and in Garner on U.S. 70 West.
Inside the store, mattresses are stacked up against the showroom windows and sofas are already priced and tagged. A sign on the door says, "Closed. Waiting four approval from Cary town."
Employees say that depending on the Town of Cary's approval, the store could open as early as next week. A grand opening is planned for October.
