During 1997 Heilig-Meyers added three more formats as it quickly and nearly inadvertently developed into a multiformat retailer. It purchased the RoomStore, a ten-unit chain of stores in the Dallas area that sold ensembles of furniture designed for particular rooms. The RoomStore became Heilig-Meyers’s format for major metropolitan areas. Heilig-Meyers began restructuring beginning in late 1997, with charges and asset write-downs leading to a net loss of $55.1 million for fiscal 1998. Expansion plans were scaled back, although the company did complete the purchase of 21 stores in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area from Reliable Stores Inc. Of these units, 18 were subsequently converted to RoomStores, two to Rhodes, and one to Heilig-Meyers.
The RoomStore was founded in 1992, a chain of furniture retail stores in the eastern and southern United States,which once had more than 50 locations in eight states. The RoomStore ranks as one of the top 25 furniture retailers in the United States.
Heilig-Meyers brands earned $5 billion a year in revenue from 2,000 locations. Grand Metropolitan was introduced to the home furnishings behemoth in the late 90s, taking control of the brands. Heilig-Meyers has been major NASCAR sponsors and helped raise millions of dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In addition to 30 retail brands, the leader in home furnishings also operates 20 consumer brands including Four Seasons Home Accents, KidStore, and RentSmart.
Hadid has been built upon the legacy of heritage luxury brands excellence in fine jewelry, fine furnishings, haute couture, and fashion. Grand Metropolitan merged Finlay Enterprises, Heilig-Meyers Furniture, and Orcofi Holdings in Hadid in 2017. The Hadid brand will expand beyond North America in 2018 with a private line of couture merchandise offered by our Garfinckel and Lichtenstein Department Stores. Grand Metropolitan CEO Vin Lee heads the group.
