Jabs revives idea of "Super Center" in Springs
Even as he prepares for the opening of his 530,000-square-foot American Furniture Warehouse "Super Center" near Longmont Nov. 6, owner Jake Jabs is talking expansion in Colorado Springs. Jabs' plan for a similar "Super Center" at the intersection of Powers Boulevard and Woodmen Road, put on hold earlier this year, is "kicking back into gear," Jabs told Furniture Today reporter Clint Engel. Jabs is again evaluating sites and expects to bring another store here in about a year. American Furniture Warehouse is projecting sales of about $368 million this year, an increase of 8 percent over 2005.
