Janesville Comfort Shoppe not going out of business
JANESVILLE A Janesville furniture store is once again dealing with confusion over similarities between its name and the name of a store in Madison.
Janesville Comfort Shoppe has two stores in Janesville, one on Pontiac Drive and another on Center Avenue. For years, the Janesville stores have been mistakenly linked to a store in Madison that has the name Comfort Shoppe.
"We have no affiliation whatsoever with the store in Madison," said Barb Fairclough, who owns the two stores in Janesville with her husband, Bob, and son, Jeff. "We are not in any way connected to them, and our two stores in Janesville will be around as long as we are able."
Fairclough said someone recently visited her south-side Janesville store with a letter entitling the bearer to 10 percent off advertised prices. The letter, however, was from the Madison store and not connected to the Janesville Comfort Shoppe.
In addition, the letter said the Madison store would be going out of business.
Fairclough said she wants people to know that any promotions, advertising or correspondence involving the Madison store have nothing to do with her stores in Janesville, which she said are most definitely not going out of business.
