Ashley’s new 25,000 square-foot showroom features room settings and visual displays which match the lifestyles of its shoppers, from active families with larger homes and outdoor spaces to those in apartments and smaller footprint homes.

Shoppers also can browse among outdoor furniture and accessories, children’s furniture, home accents and wall decor, table lamps, floor lamps and wall lighting, mattresses and bedding.

“Like our other Ashley stores, the Oxford store is arranged in a way reflects how our shoppers are living their lives,” said Lexie Paswater, vice president of marketing for Ashley.

Ashley’s Purchase with Purpose program also gives shoppers the opportunity to give back to those in need at no additional cost. Programs provide a voice for the vulnerable, access to basic healthcare in developing countries, and new beds for vulnerable children without beds to call their own. Last year, the program raised more than $1 million for its partner charities.

Ashley’s new Oxford store is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.; and Sunday, noon – 8 p.m.
