Store Closure After a Successful Run

The warm neighborhood charm of Shank’s Home Furnishings in Lancaster, Pennsylvania will soon become a memory. Starting as a small shop in 1944, this family-owned business expanded over the decades into a 30,000-square-feet showroom known for its quality furniture and personalized service.
