July 5, 2017: Staker Furniture and Interiors on Second Street in Traer.
Traer’s furniture store is closing its doors.
The building was built in 1974 for a relocating Overton Furniture. The current owner, Cindy Youel, said “opportunity knocked” and the buyer wants to use it as a warehouse.
The store will close by the end of September or when everything is sold.
