PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Levin Furniture is celebrating the reopening of two Pittsburgh-area stores.
The stores at the Pointe in North Fayette and McMurray reopened Wednesday.
When Robert Levin retired in 2017, he sold his family stores to a company that then went bankrupt. But rather than see his stores shuttered and former employees out of work, he stepped in and brought back the stores.
Levin says the grand reopening is a big step forward.
"We're back open and back in the neighborhood, back able to service our customers from past and new customers, people coming into the community as well," Levin said.
Levin says the opportunity also allowed the company to hire back hundreds of former sales associates, many of whom were without jobs in the height of the pandemic.
