A Logansport furniture store is closing after almost a decade of doing business in town.

Lucas Furniture & Mattress, 2625 E. Market St., started its liquidation sale on Tuesday.

Kristin Johnson, marketing director for the company, said the Logansport location is closing because customer traffic has waned. It's operated on the city's East End for about nine years, she added.

Lucas Furniture & Mattress at 96 W. 300 South in Kokomo will remain in business and closing the Logansport location won't result in any job loss, Johnson said.

The company owns the Logansport building it's been operating out of and plans for the space's future remain to be determined, Johnson went on to say.

Johnson said the company is grateful to Logansport and all the customers it's had there over the years.

"We really appreciate their support in the community," she said.
