Upscale Home Furnishings shuts its doors, files for Chapter 7


Joel Ferris III, owner of Upscale Home Furnishings at 2510 N. Monroe, has closed the Spokane business and said customers who provided consignment furniture will have the items returned in several weeks.

Ferris started the all-consignment furniture store in 2006. His family owned and operated popular downtown décor and furniture retailer Joel Inc. Upscale Home Furnishings had four employees, Joel said in an e-mail to Office Hours.

The business has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, according to a filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for Eastern Washington.  A hearing for creditors is set for Jan 25 at 2:30 p.m. at the U.S. Courthouse Bankruptcy Court in downtown Spokane.
