TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Local residents can expect a good deal on furniture after the recently announced closure of family-owned, local furniture store Cricket Box.  

After nearly 50 years, Cricket Box, one of Indiana’s largest furniture stores, is going out of business with the close-out sale beginning on May 5. With a long local history, Cricket Box is closing its doors due to the retirement of owner, Robb Crick. 

“We are proud of the long-standing relationships our family business has maintained within the industry and our community, and we thank our customers and suppliers for the many years of support,” Crick said.

When the store first opened in 1976, it was a 2,000-square-foot antique store in Farmersburg. The business moved to Terre Haute in 1988 and has been there since, settling at the 2901 Wabash Avenue location. 

The 100,000-square-foot store will kick off its total liquidation next week with furniture for the living room, dining room, and bedroom, including mattresses, at a discounted price.

The close-out sale will offer 20-50% discounts and will feature brands such as La-Z-Boy Howard Miller, Catnapper, Steve Silver, Kingsdown, Southern Motion, Leather Italia, Flexsteel, England, and Vaughn-Bassett. Staff will be available to offer advice on all purchases
