CHICAGO, IL - November 18, 2010- After more than 70 years in business, and under authority of a U.S. Bankruptcy court, store closing sales are now in progress at all 36 Lacks Home Furnishings, Inc. stores in Texas. $40 million of top quality furniture, bedding, major appliances, televisions and home accessories will be liquidated.

Discounts from 30% to 50% are offered on all merchandise at every Lacks location. Consumers will benefit from very significant savings on Lacks' entire stock of furniture for the bedroom, living room, dining room, kids' room, den and home office. There are substantial price reductions on all mattress sets, home theater entertainment centers and decorative accessories, as well.
