Noll’s Furniture to Close Last Remaining Location After 65 years

1.8 min read| Published On: January 11th, 2024|

Noll’s Furniture is going out of business after 65 years of selling quality furniture and mattresses at discounted outlet prices. The total liquidation sale begins January 11 and the building is for sale.

For three generations, the Noll family has built a legacy as a cherished part of the Central Florida community with its commitment to providing exceptional customer service and quality home furnishings. At the peak of its success, Noll’s Furniture had seven stores open at various locations in Florida with the Leesburg location being the longest surviving. Current owner Amber Noll Shelley will now close the Leesburg store as she plans to retire along with her son, Eric Shelley, who has been a partner in the family business since 1996.

“It’s been a wonderful run of over 65 years for three generations of our family. My husband, Gerald, and I opened the original Noll’s location in Leesburg in a 5,000-square-foot store next door to our present 28,000-square-foot showroom,” said Amber Noll Shelley. 

“My son, Eric, and I want to thank our loyal customers and long-term employees and vendors. It has been our pleasure to help furnish thousands of homes in Central Florida.” 

Noll’s Furniture is located at 2110 US Hwy 441. The 28,000-square-foot building is for sale and all remaining inventory must be liquidated. The going-out-of-business sale begins January 11 and will offer major discounts on mattresses, dining sets, recliners, sofas and much more. All items are available for immediate pick up or delivery. 

Famous name brands include Stanley Chair, Best, Southern Motion, Coaster, Cottage Creek, Pelican Reef, Elements, Steve Silver, Med Lift, GatherCraft, Hughes, J Furniture, Affordable, Kith, and Crown Mark. 

The store will be open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 12 to 5pm. For more information on the liquidation sale or details on the purchase of the building, visit https://nollsfurnitureoutlet.com/ or contact Eric Shelley directly at (352) 728-2522. 

Noll’s Furniture was founded in 1958 in Eau Gallie, Florida, by John R. Noll, a retired Air Force captain and test pilot. Established on Noll’s philosophy, “a handshake still matters”, the furniture store quickly became known in the community for their friendliness, attentiveness, and personalized customer service. Over the next 65 years, Noll’s Furniture would add locations in the cities of Casselberry, Orlando, Ocala, and Deland, all of which have since closed permanently. 

In 1971, Noll’s Furniture opened their flagship location in Leesburg. John R. Noll’s daughter, Amber, discovered her own passion for the furniture industry and began working alongside her father as soon as she was old enough. Amber’s husband, Gerald Shelley, also decided to join in the family business and together they officially took over operation of the Leesburg store in 1975. Amber and Gerald gained full ownership along with their son when Amber’s father passed away in 1997.
