Duluth's Anderson Furniture Co. — one of the last in the cities' former "furniture hub" — will close after over 100 years of operation.

The furniture store, located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, confirmed it will close after advertisements were sent to residents announcing a store closing sale.

An employee who wouldn't use his name said the owner confirmed its Duluth location would close after it sells the store's furniture. But the Anderson Furniture in Virginia will stay open.

The employee wasn't given a reason why the store was closing, and said the owner won't comment until next week.

Furniture prices will be cut by up to 70%, according to the mailed advertisement.
