Berkshire County Furniture Stores Closing

ADAMS, Mass. (AP) — A Berkshire County furniture store that’s been in business for more than 130 years is closing down.

The family that runs Simmons Furniture Store locations in Adams and Pittsfield says they will shut down after selling their remaining inventory of couches, recliners, beds, mattresses, tables and bookcases.

The original store was founded by the Simmons family in 1879. The Riley family bought the store in 1973 and the 15,000-square-foot Adams store has been in the same location since 1902.

Family matriarch Phyllis Riley tells The Berkshire Eagle that the loss of industry in Adams hurt the business.

She says Simmons stores were among the last to have the personal touch.
