Kacey Fine Furniture will shutter its 3 stores by year’s end

9News/Denver Post

After 45 years of selling furniture and home furnishings in Colorado, Kacey Fine Furniture will begin the process of closing its stores next Tuesday.

Owner Sam Fishbein said that the soft economy and “dismal” housing market just make it too tough to continue doing business. “I wanted to do this now while we still had the financial ability to take care of our customers and employees,” he said.

Kacey Fine Furniture is the third-largest furniture retailer in Colorado. The process to shut down the three locations will likely last through November or early December. All customer orders and warranties will be honored. Kacey has a store on Summit Boulevard in Frisco, in addition to locations in Denver and Littleton.

Kacey employs about 95 people, and Fishbein is optimistic that there will be future opportunities for them.

Kacey Fine Furniture has been a fixture in television and print advertising for more than 25 years. The head of the company, Leslie Fishbein, 55, was the face of those ad campaigns until she died in March 2008 after suffering a severe reaction to an injection for chronic back pain.
