HHGregg to leave Vernon Hills, Bob’s Discount Furniture to move in – Chicago Tribune

The HHGregg home appliance store along Townline Road in Vernon Hills is emptying its inventory before vacating the space that could soon become a Bob’s Discount Furniture, according to village officials.

Company spokesman Patrick Skertich confirmed the closure in a written statement to Pioneer Press. He said the decision is part of a “natural course of business” in which companies evaluate their future goals and existing assets.

“This closing, along with the recent announcement of restructuring our distribution network, allows us to continue driving the company towards profitability and growth with our launch of 25-to-30 new Fine Lines specialty store openings over the next two years,” the statement reads.

Skertich said the HHGregg store is expected to close by mid-October, and none of the new Fine Lines stores will be opening in this area.
