It's better to hear about store openings in our area than possible closures like JC Penney and Victoria Secret. A growing furniture and mattress retailer has opened its first Iowa store on Kimberly Road in Davenport.

According to a QC Times article,  American Freight Furniture and Mattress opened its 35,000-square foot store at 1010 E. Kimberly Road, next to Harbor Freight Tools last week.

Store reps say the warehouse-style store offers living room furniture, bedroom sets, dining sets and mattresses at affordable prices. It also offers free layaway, same-day delivery and a flexible payment option.
The Davenport store will employ between six and 10 people, according to a news release.

During tax season, the store will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday; and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Founded in 1993, American Freight Furniture and Mattress now has more than 160 stores across the country. There are Illinois stores in Peoria, Champaign, Decatur and elsewhere.
