The 4,900-square-foot Kathmandu store debuted last month with a grand opening and ribbon cutting by licensee S.N. Joshi & Sons. This is the first Ashley Furniture HomeStore opening for S.N. Joshi & Sons and marks the first HomeStore to open in the country of Nepal.

The Kathmandu store will employ approximately 15 people. Ashley FurnitureHomeStore, one of the world’s best-selling home furnishing brands, has more than 1,125 locations worldwide.
