A national furniture store chain will soon be opening a location in Jasper, according to an announcement made by the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County on Thursday.
Chamber President Linda Lewis said Badcock Home Furniture has confirmed it will be opening a store in Jasper next door to Planet Fitness in the location formerly filled by Mission Possible Thrift Store.
“We are excited to confirm that Badcock Furniture will be coming to Jasper soon,” Lewis said. “We feel they will be a great addition to our retail community and look forward to working with them.”
Lewis contributed the Chamber’s working relationship with Birmingham-firm Retail Strategies as a key in bringing the furniture company to the area.
“Jasper and Walker County is open for business,” she said. “We are speaking with a number of people with interest in locating here. Our market is strong, and we expect more positive announcements in the near future.”
We are thrilled to see Badcock Furniture locate in the area providing tax revenue and quality of life enhancement to the community.
