After 112 years in business, a popular furniture store filed for bankruptcy and will close all of its Indianapolis area stores.

It's rare for a company to be in business for over 100 years.  This Chicago-based company has survived many economic downturns over the years.  However, extreme measures have to be taken to keep the company alive.  That's why The RoomPlace Furniture & Mattresses have filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy according to,

That decision includes winding down operations in outlying markets to concentrate on strengthening its 18 Chicagoland stores. As a result, six locations in and around Indianapolis, one store in Kenosha, Wis., and one store in Peoria, Ill., will be closed.
