AUBURN – Harte’s Home is coming to Route 20.
Following the closure of Rotmans in Worcester, Heidi Richardson and a team of former Rotmans employees are working together to ensure that area consumers will continue to have a local retailer for the products, brands and services they have loved for decades.
Richardson, who is the president of Harte’s Home, said they were proud to be at this stage.
“We were heartbroken when we were told about the decision to close Rotmans. We weren’t ready to say goodbye to our customers, to our work or to each other,” she said.
Many of the employees that are working to get Harte’s opened have decades of experience of working together to meet customers’ home furnishing needs. The employees have leveraged their experience and long relationships with some of the best-known brands in the industry.
“Not many new stores can say they have hundreds of years of experience serving the market, but we can,” said Richardson.
Harte’s Home will have a broad selection of living room, dining room and bedroom furniture as well as the best selection of mattresses in the area.
Senior Merchandiser Marv Carron said the manufacturers were excited to hear from the staff when they reached out to discuss opening Harte’s Home.
“They have been our trusted partners for years and are glad to have the opportunity to work with us to continue to serve this market,” said Carron.
Harte’s will work with brands like Beautyrest, La-Z-Boy, Sealy, Canadel and more.
“As a team, we have all been very customer-focused throughout our careers, and that principle will continue here at Harte’s Home,” said Sales Manager Barbara Kane.
Harte’s Home will be located at 771 Washington Street, Auburn. The store had a soft opening in December with plans for a grand opening later in the month.
