 EDGAR HAGOPIAN TO OPEN LARGEST RUG STORE IN MICHIGAN
 BIRMINGHAM, Mich., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Birmingham's Hagopian


World of Rugs announced today it will open the largest Oriental and contemporary rug store in Michigan Jan. 1.
 The 10,000-square-foot store, which will employ about 20 people, will be at 850 S. Woodward at the intersection of Woodward and Hunter. It will replace a smaller facility now operating in the Piety Hill Plaza on Woodward, north of 14 Mile.
 Edgar Hagopian, president of The Original Hagopian, said the new World of Rugs facility will offer customers new concepts in buying rugs.
 "Our new store will be the most customer-friendly store of its type, more pleasurable," said Mr. Hagopian. "In addition, we will have an idea center where we can design rugs, using computers, and immediately show our customers a color rendering of what is produced."
 The new store, which will be freestanding, will sell rugs as well as offer cleaning and repair services.
 "We are very excited about this new store and the fact that we can remain in Birmingham with a larger, more modern facility. We have enjoyed our location in Birmingham for the last five years and are excited about our future in this city."
 Hagopian will begin a moving sale at the Woodward-14 Mile Road facility on Nov. 5.
 Hagopian operates another World of Rugs store in Ann Arbor and a Hagopian Rug Outlet in Oak Park. It has operated in the Detroit area since 1939 and is the largest rug retailer and carpet and rug cleaning firm in Michigan.
