TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo-based Banner Mattress and Furniture has announced it will close its two Toledo locations after 85 years in business.

The company's stores on Alexis Road and Hill Avenue will both close by late September.

Banner General Manager and Vice President Bard Strand says he and three colleagues plan to take over the business once the locations shut down,  then reopen the stores at a later date.

Strand says the company's factory on Bishop Street, which makes the mattresses, will stay open.
