Iverson’s unveils refurbished stores
Iverson’s Furniture, which has been at 2223 Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota since 1957, has traded its terracotta color for a silver paint job.
The company also has redone the interiors of the Bee Ridge store and its Clark Road store, which has been open since 1981. Both locations also received new signs.
It was time for a change, owner Mari Morton said.
“When a store has been around 57 years, you’ve got to mix it up now and then, and different colors go a long way.”
Iverson’s buys, sells and consigns furniture and estates, does appraisals and stages homes for sale. The company also can buy the contents of a house quickly after the property is sold.
“We’ll clean it out, move it out and hand you a check,” Morton said.
Iverson’s management includes Mari’s son, Barry Wigglesworth, and most of its staff have been with the company 20 years or more.
