Golfsmith International Holdings Inc. Plans Approximately 25,000-Square-Foot Store in the Space Being Vacated by Klaussner Furniture
Oct 19 12
Golfsmith International Holdings Inc. announced that it is planning an approximately 25,000-square-foot store in the space being vacated by Klaussner Furniture at the Wendover Village shopping center in Greensboro. The more than 300,000-square-foot retail center was built on the former site of a Guilford Mills plant at Interstate 40 and West Wendover Avenue. The Golfsmith store is slated to take over the former space of Klaussner after the furniture company closed its store this month. Klaussner, which opened the store in 2008, did not return phone calls seeking comment about the circumstances of the closing but signs advertising the recent closeout sale indicated that the company had lost its lease at the center. Golfsmith is planning the store amid growth and change. The company agreed this year to be acquired by Golf Town of Canada for $97 million. The combination means that all stores in the U.S. will be branded as Golfsmith while locations in Canada will operate as Golf Town.
