WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Demolition work has started on the Kurlancheek Home Furnishings showroom and warehouse at 235 Mundy St., the company announced in a Tuesday press release.
The company also said it was able to salvage electronic and paper files from the building badly damaged in the June 13 tornado.
Kurlancheek has set up a temporary office and warehouse with public hours available by appointment at 75 S. Wyoming Ave., Suite 4, Edwardsville. (The former Gateway Cinema.)
Kurlancheek also had these updates for customers:
• Merchandise in the Mundy Street warehouse when the tornado hit has been declared a total loss.
• Previously ordered merchandise that was not yet at the warehouse when the tornado hit is being received and delivered.
• New orders can be placed immediately.
Kurlancheek moved to its Mundy Street location in early 2014, and it purchased the building only a few months ago.
“Our first priority is to satisfy our customers who have open orders,” said owner Ronne Kurlancheek. “We will continue to move forward and come back better than ever.”
