Ashley Furniture showroom, warehouse going up in south Fargo across from Scheels

FARGO – If you’ve driven in the area of 45th Street and 16th Avenue South here, you’ve seen it – towering walls and a building footprint that looks like it could swallow a football field.

What is going up in that location is a $6.5 million Ashley Furniture HomeStore showroom and warehouse complex that will cover about 82,000 square feet.

The business expects to open sometime in July, said Lindsey Moulton, executive and project assistant at Furniture Mart USA, the parent company of Ashley Furniture.

Furniture Mart has three existing operations in North Dakota – an Unclaimed Freight furniture store in Fargo, a Furniture Mart in West Fargo and an Ashley Furniture store in Grand Forks.

The warehouse part of the new Fargo site will be the main warehouse serving all of Furniture Mart USA’s operations in North Dakota, Moulton said.

She said the new furniture store will also be home to an Ashley Sleep Mattress store.

Although the complex will be large, great effort has gone into giving the structure curb appeal, Moulton said.

“It’s going to be a beautiful building,” she said.
