Couch cushions around the showroom are pushed up like someone lost their remote or a kid is looking for some change.

The cushions signal what’s been sold at Hilliards Furniture Company, at 6914 Old Avery Road in Dublin.

Working  around the ottomans and couches scattered about the room is owner Jon Kundtz, of Dublin. At 71, Kundtz  has been around almost as long as Hilliards Furniture Company, which traces its roots to 1953.  

On Wednesday June 16, the store will close, ending its reign as Dublin’s oldest retail business.

The store isn’t a victim of online furniture shopping  or COVID-19.

Instead, Kundtz is simply ready to kick back and relax.

“It’s just time,” said Kundtz, the store’s only full-time employee and owner.
