Klingman’s Furniture Celebrates 117 Years

Klingman's 117th Anniversary SaleThis year, West Michigan furniture company Klingman’s celebrates it’s 117th year in business. Founded in 1896 by Philip J. Klingman, the retailer’s name is widely recognized in Grand Rapids and the the greater West Michigan Area.

In celebration of it’s 117th anniversary, Klingman’s Furniture is hosting an Anniversary Sale featuring record-low prices on many fine furnishings. Some of the savings found at the year-long savings event include:

  • Half off dining room tables with the purchase of four chairs
  • Half off all beds with the purchase of two case pieces
  • A bonus coupon for an additional 20% off any one item
  • A Stearns and Fosters pick two program that allows you to pick any two of the following options with purchase: Free Delivery, Free Bed Frame, Free Mattress Pad, Free Removal & Disposal, or Free Financing
  • And much more!

The rich history of the company and it’s struggles over the past few years have made this anniversary even more reason to celebrate.

What started out as a man selling furniture samples at the Grand Rapids Market turned into what would soon become West Michigan’s largest privately owned fine furnishing company. However, the company faced a huge threat back in 2010, when the company was forced into bankruptcy.

The store was forced to close it’s doors at  Roger’s Plaza, after being moved two years earlier from it’s original location at Centerpointe Mall, and quickly liquidated its assets  But the Klingman’s brand has re-emerged after being revived by new owners. The Klingman’s showroom that Grand Rapids knows and loves is now located at 2984 28th Street SE in Kentwood.

Congratulations to Klingman’s Furniture for holding strong in West Michigan since 1896 – your 117th anniversary is one to celebrate!

The center offers a wide range of medical services, from Hospital services with a full surgical staff and emergency services, to senior living services, as well as more common patient services like physical therapy, medical imaging, and lab work.

This year marks Regina Medical Center’s 60th Anniversary, and the center was happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with members of the community. The center hosted a 60th Anniversary Community Celebration, which took place on the Regina Medical Center campus in Hastings on August 17, 2013.

The Anniversary Celebration welcomed all members of the community with a free picnic dinner, including burgers, chips, cookies, and fruit. Lemonade was also served, which was a big hit with the temperatures soaring on the hot summer day.

There was plenty to do for the kids at the event, with a variety of children’s games, a dunk tank, a bouncing castle, a giant inflatable slide, and an obstacle course. In addition to fun and games for the kids, adults could take part in hip hop dancing and other healthy activities in the exercise tent.

The event featured a live band, The Castaways, playing classic music from the 50’s and 60’s. There were also several community booths, demonstrating different programs available at Regina Medical Center, as well as highlighting additional sponsors of the event.

Congratulations to Regina Medical Center on 60 years of dedication to patient care and community outreach!
