MASON CITY — McGregors Furniture is closing its Mason City location after 56 years in business. The manager of McGregors in Waterloo said the store here will remain open.
The Mason City store, located at 2930 Fourth St. S.W., displayed a “store closing” notice on its sign Thursday.
“Unfortunately we have made the painful decision to close the Mason City store,” President Erin McGregor said. “We have been in Mason City since 1963 and hate to leave the great people of Mason City and surrounding areas.”
A “store closing” sale will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday.
A family-owned furniture business with more than 120 years worth of history in Iowa, there are five McGregors locations, including Mason City, Marshalltown, Coralville, Ottumwa and Waterloo. The company closed locations in Fort Dodge in 2018 and Charles City in 2000.
McGregor Furniture Co. was founded in 1896 in Oskaloosa by James McGregor.
Erin McGregor is the founder’s great-granddaughter. The company is headquartered in Marshalltown.
