Two Pittsburgh Brands Expand
Levin Furniture opens a new store in Pleasant Hills and Vangura Surfacing Products debuts a design showcase, The Kitchen by Vangura.
Levin Opens Its Largest Showroom Yet
Last week, Levin Furniture celebrated the opening of its newest store, a 96,000-square-foot showroom that ranks as the largest Levin space yet.
In 2015, the company’s Century Square store in West Mifflin closed after a fire, so the new space, which includes a Levin Furniture, Levin Mattress and Levin Clearance Outlet Center, is meant to expand the company’s services into that area.
“In an area that was already struggling to rebuild itself, we were determined to find a nearby location that could accommodate our vision for Levin’s future as well as bring more commerce into the area. The Curry Hollow Road space was a perfect fit for both,” Levin Owner and Operator Robert Levin said in a statement.
The storefront was formerly a Value City Department store.
Levin operates more than 30 Levin Furniture and Levin Mattress stores in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio.

Vangura Adds Design Showcase
In other expansion news, Vangura Surfacing Products is planning to open a new design showcase, The Kitchen by Vangura.
The new showcase in the store’s North Huntingdon location will be a dual-use space: During the day, it will serve as an extension of the existing two-floor showroom exhibiting a variety of countertop materials, applications and styles. In the evenings and on the weekends, it will become a space for entertainment and cooking classes.
A website, thekitchenbyvangura.com, is set to go live this week with a schedule of upcoming events.
An invitation-only grand opening celebration with an appearance by HGTV’s Daniel Grady Faires, host of “DanMade,” is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Saturday. Faires will be on-site to share his insights and demonstrate The Kitchen by Vangura’s newest product innovations. Proceeds from the event will donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
Vangura specializes in custom-crafted granite, quartz, solid surface and laminate countertops.
