Rooms to Go, a moderately priced furniture retailer with Louisiana locations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, is building a store at the old Marshall’s Nursery site on Ambassador Caffery Parkway.

A Rooms to Go spokesman could not be reached for comment Thursday morning. According to John Broyles of Lafayette Consolidated Government’s Planning, Zoning and Codes department, plans for the new store have been approved, and it will occupy about 35,000 square feet at 3550 Ambassador Caffery Parkway.

Based in Seffner, Fla., (East Tampa Bay area), Rooms to Go was founded in 1991 and now calls itself “America’s No. 1 independent furniture company,” boasting what it says is the country’s largest furniture inventory. The company sells living room and bedroom furniture online and through retail stores. “Because our prices are low every day of the week and every month of the year, you’re not misled with phony sales or fake 50% discounts,” according to the company’s website.

It also has stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In 2005 Cindy Crawford launched an exclusive line for Rooms to Go called Cindy Crawford Home.

Pelican Properties LFT LLC purchased the Ambassador Caffery site from a local group, Ash 4 Holdings LLC, for $2.5 million in November of last year. Ash 4 bought the property from Marshall Mugnier of Ambassador Properties in May 2007 for $2.3 million, according to courthouse records. The Secretary of State has Samuel David Abraman as Ash 4’s registered agent and Gabriel Shaik, Dr. Matthew Abraham and Grady J. Abraham as its officers.
