INDIANAPOLIS, IN (May 15, 2015) – The savings are on. Weekends Only Furniture and Mattress officially opened the doors of it first Indiana location this morning and welcomed Indy shoppers to experience a new way to buy furniture.

“This great city has all the right ingredients for us to be successful. The best part is the people of Indianapolis. You're our kind of people,” said CEO Tom Phillips prior to cutting the ribbon. “You never know what you're going to find at a Weekends Only store, but what you do know, is you'll find it at the best price. We love our customers. We are looking for people who want to grow with us, personally and professionally. We will dedicate ourselves to earning your trust and keeping it. We want Indy to be our town, too.”

Phillips also revealed that he is looking to open a second Weekends Only location in Indy next year.

Joining Phillips in officially opening the store was State Senator James Merritt (R-Indianapolis).

We hope Weekends Only is going to be here for a long time,” he said. “It seems like it's a friendly, homey type of company, and thus exactly what Castleton and Indianapolis needs.”

Weekends Only is located at 8315 Center Run Drive, the site of the former Burlington Coat Factory. Shoppers got a sneak peek this weekend before the grand opening on May 22.

As its name suggest, Weekends Only is only open Friday through Sunday. The limited shopping hours allow the company to pass significant savings on brand name furniture to their customers.

The concept has excelled in St. Louis. Weekends Only opened its first store in 1997 and expanded to five in less than a decade. In 2006, the company began to think about expanding to another city, but the question was where? It didn’t take long before Phillips decided Indianapolis was a good fit.

Also on hand were members of the OneZone Chamber of Commerce, who represent businesses in the Carmel and Fishers communities.

“We are so pleased to have you right on our doorstep,” said Chamber President Mo Merhoff. “The entrepreneurial spirit of a company like Weekends Only is exactly what we were looking for in central Indiana. Everyone who comes in to your door is welcome.”
