Ashley HomeStore has opened a new 20,000-square-foot store here that features a wide mix of case goods, upholstery and bedding. Located at 297 Route 72 West, the store is owned by Barry DiMaio, who also owns Ashley HomeStores in Ledgewood, Phillipsburg and Toms River, NJ. “We’re so excited to open this location in Manahawkin,” DiMaio said. “This HomeStore will change the furniture shopping experience for our consumers and will allow them to feel at home in our showroom. We’re looking forward to becoming a part of the community and hope to provide the style, value and selection that Manahawkin has been missing.” The store features living room, dining room, bedroom, home office and youth furniture. A dedicated mattress showroom will showcase a number of bedding brands including Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Stearns and Foster and Ashley-Sleep.
