Factory, bank for sale

B y Krystle S. Morey

$1,399,000 – that’s the asking price for the factory that Manchester Wood called home for 27 years.

TD Bank in Granville

The furniture manufacturer announced this summer that it was going out of business, with plans to sell off inventory and close its Granville location.

The news of Manchester Wood’s closing came as a shock to officials, employees, residents and customers alike.

“…we didn’t see this coming. There was no notification at all,” said Granville Town Supervisor Matt Hicks upon learning of the business’ closure.

In the weeks following its announcement, local officials and business leaders reached out to Manchester Wood owners Ed and Priscilla Eriksen to see what they could do to help keep the factory’s doors open.

The Eriksens, aside from posts on social media, have remained mum about reasons for the company’s closure. Uncertainty regarding the future of the business continued until last week, when a “for sale” sign was posted in front of the County Route 24 factory.

“There’s been some interest,” said Craig Darby, CBRE associate broker.
