HAMPDEN TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WHTM) — A long-time, family-owned furniture store in Cumberland County recently announced its final day of operation.
Sofas Unlimited, located at 4713 Carlisle Pike, is owned and operated by Jack Lashay. The now 31-year-old business announced on its Facebook page back on March 30 that they would be going out of business, and would be liquidating their entire inventory.
The Facebook post read:

According to Sofas Unlimited manager Martin Goffin, the long-time business applied for the closure back on March 29. The state then gives a business 30 days following the application submission to either close their doors or to apply for a 30-day extension if needed.
Goffin went on to explain the factors regarding the announced closure, which include:
- Owner Jack Lashay celebrated his 80th birthday back on March 26
- Having no successor in the family to take over the business
- The building is being sold to new owners
As part of the announced closure, Sofas Unlimited will be offering huge sales and deals on all of its inventory. These sales include 65% off of all area rugs, 50% off of all accessories, and “sacrifice prices” on all other pieces of furniture.
The hours of operation for Sofas Unlimited are:
- Mondays – Saturdays // 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Sundays // 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
According to a Facebook post made last week, the last day of operation for Sofas Unlimited will be May 29.
