Exclusive: CEO of CITY Furniture braces for a big weekend and bigger things to come in Tampa Bay (PHOTOS)

CITY Furniture, a family-owned furniture and mattress retailer, based in South Florida, has been open for a few weeks, in Plant City, but this weekend it’s welcoming the community to check out its newest showroom.

“As we enter this market, we’re excited to share everything CITY stands for as we are a company that continuously gives back to causes and communities that mean so much to our CITY family,” says Andrew Koenig, chief executive officer of CITY Furniture. “We can’t wait for Plant City residents, and the surrounding Tampa area, to join us in the celebration of what is not only the largest furniture showroom in the [United States], but also the greenest.”

The newest location is also the largest furniture destination in Florida with more than 1.3 million square feet of space, which includes a furniture and décor showroom, a full warehouse and a café and wine bar.

The Plant City location is also the greenest City Furniture facility the company has built to date, with the warehouse, offices and showroom being all LEED designed, and built, and includes 100% LED lighting throughout the building.

“Our 2040 Green promise is important because it makes everybody here really proud to work here and to know we’re doing what’s right for the environment,” Koenig says. “And, from a business perspective, it’s actually the right long term financial investment too.”

Throughout the weekend celebrations, CITY will be giving away more than $30,000 in gift cards and any customer that “tries out” a mattress during the grand opening weekend, will receive a $25 gift card and CITY will also donate $25 to the American Cancer Society on the customer’s behalf through its 5% Giving Pledge.

In keeping with its commitment to being the “greenest furniture store” CITY will be giving away a Tesla.

“We’re going to be a major partner [in this community]. Our doors are always open, we’re completely transparent,” Koenig says. “We’re happy to help and/or learn from our friends and make an impact. We want to make an impact in the community. The economic growth of the community is important to us.”
