Local furniture store chain Roomful Express is going out of business.

Recently, the company announced it was $18 million in debt, but said it was negotiating with its lenders to try to remain open.

However, the lenders were apparently not willing to work out a deal.

Going out of business sales will soon commence at all local Roomful Express Furniture stores, after an Allegheny County judge ordered the chain into receivership.

The company, which did business for decades as Freight Liquidators before refocusing its efforts on crafting a more upscale image, made the announcement after lenders forced an $18 million judgment.

A toll-free phone number (1-888-696-7378) has been set up to answer customer questions.
