Mazer going out of business, holding liquidation sale | Business
Longtime-Birmingham home furnishings and appliance store Mazer Discount Superstore will soon be closing its doors.
The 78-year-old discount store announced in a press release that it is holding a going-out-of-business at its Homewood location on Green Springs Highway after attempts to salvage its financial troubles proved unsuccessful.
“The economic downturn, including a lack of new housing starts, forced the decision to close our store,” store owner Michael Mazer said in the release. “I would like to thank all of our loyal customers, employees and vendors for being such an important part of the Mazer’s tradition for all of these years.”
The company was founded in 1932 by the late Ben Mazer as a building supply company in downtown Birmingham. It developed into Mazer Lumber Company and later into general merchandise products, furniture, rugs and appliances.
