Temporary tattle: A major manufacturer and retailer of furniture is planning a temporary store in Dickinson as consumers whose homes were flooded during Hurricane Harvey prepare to refurnish.

City officials confirm Ashley Furniture HomeStore plans to open in the former Palais Royal space, 3465 Interstate 45. Palais Royal closed shortly before Hurricane Harvey struck in late August. Arcadia, Wis.-based Ashley Furniture’s nearest location is just outside Galveston County in Webster. Ashley Furniture is planning to operate in Dickinson for a year, said Zach Meadows, director of community development.
