After 125 years in business, a Meridian furniture store is closing. Hulett's has been part of downtown for almost as long as downtown Meridian has existed.

It opened to a special invitation-only closeout sale Thursday morning.

Hulett Furniture Company is getting rid of all its inventory, and is offering deep discounts.

The grandfather of current owner, Fred Hulett, opened the store in 1885.
Hulett says there are no younger family members interested in taking over the business.

"It has just been more than we ever expected," said store Hulett. "I waited on one gal. She is a 4th generation in our family that has bought furniture at Hulett's, and that really makes you feel good that young people in Meridian are still coming back."

Hulett owns the building at 23rd Avenue and Front Street. At this time, he said he doesn't have plans for it.

Hulett is one of three downtown businesses that have been open since the 1800s. Weidmann's first opened in 1870. It's temporarily closed right now, under new ownership. Loeb's, which has been handed down for four generations, opened in 1887.
