COVID-19 has affected business owners across the country, and now it is dealing a hard blow to one local retailer. Jerry’s Furniture and Mattress Center at 580 Highway 27 will close its Vicksburg location, hopefully only temporarily, at the end of June.
Owner Bonnie Hales says merchandise has been in short supply for several weeks as delivery dates keep getting changed and pushed back. Meanwhile, her showroom is almost empty.
Jerry’s Utica location has been in business for over 50 years, and recently, it has only been open one day a week as most of the inventory was transferred to the Vicksburg store.
Hales said she is hopeful as the pandemic subsides and factories ramp up production that supply lines will reopen. She invites her customers to drop by before the end of the month for some great buys on remaining inventory.
