CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A popular furniture and multi-vendor store in south Charlotte is closing.

BLACKLION on Park Road, right outside Pineville, has been in business for nearly 27 years.

Store owners say they sold their building, leased the property through February of next year and will close on Jan. 31, 2023, before moving the business to Chicago, “to continue the family legacy and the BLACKLION brand.”

The owners didn’t give a specific reason for closing but did say the past few years have been challenging.
