It is our attempt to help customers discover their personal style and inspire decorating choices they will love for years to come. Our home textiles and furnishings store is the first of many formats to be launched under the flagship Home Solutions brand, and we are optimistic it will give the homemaker a bigger and better choice for all the needs of the home.”
