June Greenwald Antiques holds sale before closing Cleveland Heights store
June Greenwald Antiques announced a store closing sale starting July 30 at 10 a.m. at its Cleveland Heights location at 3096 Mayfield Road, at the corner of Lee Road. The store is the original location of the business, which was founded more than 50 years ago by June Greenwald.
In 2009, two of her children, Robin and Ronald, opened another store at 28480 Chagrin Blvd. in Woodmere Village. That location has been so successful that they have decided to close the original Cleveland Heights showroom and move to Mercantile Road in Beachwood—directly across the street from the Ohio Design Center.
June Greenwald Antiques is the oldest ongoing antique business in Northeast Ohio. The sale in Cleveland Heights is meant to help move out the inventory that has built up over the last half-century. The Greenwalds have bought pieces from the great estates of old, renowned Cleveland families, as well as from estates throughout the country.
According to the owners, there are simply too many of these collected treasures to move, so everything—including furniture, fixtures, glass, pottery, porcelain and paintings—will be marked down by 50 percent, with some items marked down as much as 75 percent. "This sale is the end of an era," Robin Greenwald said. "I hope people will want to come and add some of our treasures to their collection."
