Joglo House owners Gary Jones said he and his wife Betty will officially open the furniture store this weekend either Friday or Saturday. The Kingstowne couple has received their first shipment of furniture and are ready for the opening.
Gary said they'll have an official grand opening in the coming months, but items will be ready for purchase when they open the doors this weekend. Gary and Betty signed the lease in mid-January for the property where Telegraph Station was once located. The furniture store will specialize in Indonesian furniture and artwork.
Earlier this year, Gary said solid natural wood furniture and artwork will be sold at Joglo House for reasonable prices, with some of their merchandise priced about 25 to 30 percent cheaper than other local furniture stores.
Gary and Betty are currently spending time fixing up the property in preparation for the opening which was originally scheduled for February. He was not specific on the time of the opening this weekend, but he said the store will be open Tuesday-Sunday and closed on Mondays once they officially open.
Betty is an artist and is involved in the local art scene in Kingstowne, and has plans to sell some of her art pieces along with works by other Indonesian artists.
