Do you remember when the Delmont area had a furniture store? Rusbosin Furniture operated here from 1978 until the late 1980’s. The business was located in a re-purposed barn along Route 66, just south of Route 22 across from King’s Restaurant. It was a great example of a “family” business as many family members worked there.
In the office photo, Linda, John and Ed Rusbosin relax after a busy day. In the exterior photo, John Rusbosin and his sister, Carol Rusbosin Tricase, pose in front of the “Furniture Barn.” Carol also worked at the nearby Timothy’s Bar and Grille. The sign on the side of the building indicates that, in addition to furniture, the store also sold carpet, TV’s and appliances.
Unfortunately, the family business was forced to relocate in advance of construction of the Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass (Turnpike 66). Ground was broken in August, 1990 and the barn was torn down. The Rusbosins opened a new store several miles south toward Greensburg along what is now Business Route 66.
