Two revamped stores now open to serve Edwards

The Edwards Furniture Store, located next to the dry cleaners in the housing area mini mall, is now back open for business.

Recently, Edwards Air Force Base saw the return of the Edwards Furniture Store to the housing area mini mall.

Yvonne Manzoor, Edwards Furniture Store manager, said the previous furniture store had been closed for a few months, but now the store is back open under new management.

“We just want to get the word out that the furniture store is open once again and we have furniture from several different retail stores to choose from,” said Manzoor.

The store is open to the entire base populace, including civilians. Sales are tax free and the store accepts Military Star and all other major credit cards. Financing is available and there is no charge for deliveries on base.

The furniture store still does not have a sign on the outside, but is located in the mini mall next to the dry cleaners.

The store is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday; and from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.  The store is closed on Sundays.

“A portion of the sales at the furniture store goes straight back to the Edwards community.”

Another store that is under new management and ready to welcome customers back is the flower and gift shop in the Edwards Exchange. Petals and Blooms Around the World is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. They are closed Sundays.

For more information on the Edwards Furniture Store, call (661) 258-7043.
