On Friday, Grand Home Furnishings opened three new stores in the Mountain State.

Grand Home Furnishing bought the John Eye's Big Sandy stores in Beckley, Princeton and Summersville in August.

Visitors of the former John Eye locations will be greeted by a new appearance and a greatly expanded selection of furniture and mattresses.

Executive Vice President of Grand Home Furnishings told 59News why he's excited for Friday's events.

"This is the first time that Grand Home Furnishings has acquired a company, especially 3 locations. It's taken a lot of effort to open these and we are very excited. It typically takes 12 weeks to do it and we did all 3 of them in 4 weeks," Robert G. Bennett said.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey was on hand at the Beckley store to welcome the public.
