The former Leamington Foods at 550 Mannheim Rd. in Hillside will soon be home to a furniture store, according to those familiar with the development.

A crew of workers renovating the store said on Oct. 8 that the old Leamington Foods will be Leo Furniture, a family-owned furniture store that was started in 2019, according to its website.

The store specializes in discount furniture and manufactures its furniture in-house. There’s already one Leo Furniture location in Calumet Park.

A man who said he’s the owner but did not provide his name said on Saturday that he decided to build a location in Hillside because “this is a quiet area.”

One worker renovating the property said the store should be open before the year is out.

Leamington Foods closed in 2018. In 2020, part of Leamington was converted into a Dollar Tree, which is right next door to a Family Dollar.
