In June 2012, Raymour & Flanigan, a family-owned furniture retailer founded in Syracuse in 1947, announced its decision to establish a new regional distribution center in Rockland County. State and county economic development agencies worked together with Orange and Rockland Utilities to make Rockland County an attractive location for their expansion.

Their purchase and renovation of the 900,000 SF former Dress Barn facility in Airmont will bring jobs and other benefits to the county. The new facility will serve as the regional warehouse and distribution hub for the company's retail stores in the New York Metro Region, as well as portions of New Jersey and Connecticut. Raymour & Flanigan is the 5th largest furniture retailer in the U.S. with stores and showrooms in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The Palisades Institute is pleased to welcome Bryan Bach and Roger Osborne to speak at the next Executive Dialogue breakfast. Mr. Bach is Vice President of Operations and Customer Care and Mr. Osborne is Vice President of Regional Sales. Both were instrumental in the decision to expand in Rockland County and will oversee departments in the new operation. Please join us at the: Raymour & Flanigan Executive Dialogue Tuesday, March 5 in the Lawrence Room of Rosary Hall from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

The cost for this event, which includes a continental breakfast, is $20 per person. For more details and to register please contact Nancy Rivera at (845) 848-7806 or nancy.rivera@dc.edu.
