The Buzz: Longtime furniture store to close

Harn's Furniture is a longtime fixture in Neenah

Harn’s Furniture shut one of two stores, its closeout building, back in May 2012.

Now it’s closing its main store as well. It’s at 1311 S. Commercial St. in Neenah.

Harn’s Furniture has been in business for 67 years under a variety of names, including Harn’s Barn, Harn’s Brothers Acres and M&M Furniture. It was started by Matt Harn.

Second-generation owner Mark Harn, who appeared in ads as “the general,” has been working here for 49 years. He had been planning for his retirement for some time.

“I’m 72 and not in the best of health. I just have to hang it up,” he said. “I was planning on David (Gurnee, his vice president) taking it over, but he’s got health problems too. We could use everyone’s prayers.”

The store’s going-out-of business sale will run until the furniture and mattresses are sold off. Harn was unsure of how long that would take, but said it could go three or four months.

“Anybody’s who’s got stuff on hold or layaway, we’ll take care of. They can get their furniture,” he said.

The 20,000-square-foot building will later be put up for sale or lease.
