Three metro Detroit business leaders have opened an American Freight store in Clinton Township. The store features affordable home furnishings such as furniture, mattresses, appliances, and accents.

Located at 37055 South Groesbeck Hwy. (near Metro Parkway or 16 Mile Road), a grand opening will take place over the weekend (Sept. 1-3). By buying directly from factories and selling in warehouse style stores, American Freight states it offers everyday low prices on quality furniture and mattresses.

The 25,000-square-foot location is owned by Tom Purther, CEO of Cambridge Investors in Troy; Scott R. Jacobson, chairman of Cambridge Investors and president and owner of SRJ Land Co. in Bingham Farms; and Daniel Stern, principal of Lormax Stern Development Co. in Bloomfield Hills.

The trio came across the idea of adding American Freight locations to one of the shopping centers they owned in Alabama and thought it would be a perfect brand to grow in Michigan.

“We’re excited to open in Clinton Township and give the community access to the widest assortment of quality furniture and mattresses,” says Purther. “This is just the first of many locations we are planning to add to the metro Detroit area.”

Offering same-day delivery on all in-stock items, American Freight offers:

  • Living room furniture (sofas, loveseats, sectionals, ottomans, and recliners)
  • Bedroom furniture (beds, nightstands, dressers, mirrors, and drawers)
  • Kitchen and dining room furniture (counter and standard-height sets)
  • Mattresses
  • Bed Frames and accessories
  • Rugs and accents (lamps, desks, TV stands, and area rugs)
  • New-in-box appliances (refrigerators and freezers, washers and dryers, cooking appliances, dishwashers, etc.)

“Continuing our growth around metro Detroit has been really important as we push to offer the best furniture, at the best prices to Michigan residents,” says Mark Randles, regional sales manager for American Freight. “This new location in Clinton Township allows us to be able to offer this high-quality experience with more people in the northern suburbs.”

American Freight will be open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. For more information on American Freight in Clinton Township, visit here or call 586-782-6300.
