A popular local furniture store is closing its doors after 107 years in business.
Bolotin Furniture in Hermitage will begin the process of closing down its business operations at 3056 E. State St. with a going out of business sale beginning Aug. 15 at 10 a.m.
Bolotin Furniture was opened in 1906 by then 18-year-old Simon Bolotin. Bolotin came to the United States from Russia and continued in the family business of selling furniture.
Bolotin’s grandson, Mark Bolotin, took over the company in 2000.
“My decision to close the store was a very difficult one,” said Mark Bolotin. “Bolotin Furniture has been part of the Shenango Valley for over 100 years and we’ve made friends over that time. I want to express our sincere appreciation to all our clients for the continuing support.”
Mark Bolotin will continue in the retail furniture business with an online store.
