From the Ashley Furniture HomeStore
John Neace, majority owner of KHF Holdings LLC is no stranger to success. Neace is also Chairman of Neace Lukens, an insurance broker and risk assessment group with offices in Indianapolis, is currently ranked as the 28 largest insurance broker in the United States.
"Our goal in opening Ashley Furniture HomeStores was never to simply survive, but to thrive despite any challenge that faced us," commented Neace. "To make this in less than six years is a testament to our hard work and high customer service standards."
Like many in the top 100, KHF Holdings' growth plans include opening new stores. A new Ashley Furniture HomeStore is planned for the north side of Indianapolis and the ninth Home Express location opens in New Albany on July 31.
In addition to the national ranking, the Ashley Furniture HomeStores moved to the #1 position as the preferred furniture store in Indianapolis according to 2009 research conducted by Scarborough Data and to the #1 position in Louisville as reported by Marshall Marketing. The KHF owned HomeStores have steadily climbed in awareness since opening in December of 2003 and now hold the top listing in both markets.
"I invite all of our past customers and those we haven't yet met to join us as we celebrate at our Ashley Furniture HomeStores this week. Indianapolis homeowners put us in the #1 position and we want to say 'thank you' in person," invited Caprio.
The four KHF owned HomeStores will offer customers a choice of savings with specials including $1 delivery, $1 down long term financing or a 16% discount. The offer began July 21 and continues through July 26, 2010.
