A furniture and rug store in Avon is closing its doors.

Boyles Furniture & Rugs announced the closure of its Waterville Road location on Monday.

The store said its closing sale will begin on Thursday.

The business name has been around for 65 years. Three years ago, however, it was relaunched as a partnership between the Hendricks family and a group of investors led by Gene Rosenberg.

"Closing the Avon store will certainly present a wonderful opportunity for consumers to buy furniture at unprecedented savings." Rosenberg said. "All rugs will be discounted by 65 percent."

Rosenberg also said the store features many of the most iconic brands in the furniture industry, including Henredon, Drexel Heritage, Sherrill, Bernhardt, Hekman, Howard Miller, Marge Carson, Theodore Alexander, Caracole, and Aireloom Bedding.  Boyles also houses a large Oriental rug gallery with fine rugs from around the world.

Store officials said they expect crowds to be large and encouraged customers to shop early.
