There are about to be more choices in Houston for home decorating. Ashley is opening two Houston furniture stores. Conroe and Katy will be the first locations with plans to build 8-10 more. The Ashley HomeStores concept centers upon 45,000 square foot retail locations. The Wisconsin manufacturer will use these stores to market their own brand exclusively, focusing on settings in which the customer can see entire rooms of furniture setup as he or she would see in his or her own house.
