Morris Furniture Company is celebrating 70 years in business by giving away furniture to dozens of customers.

The Dayton-based company, which has 18 home furnishings showrooms throughout Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus and Northern Kentucky, is celebrating its 70th anniversary with special offers for customers. The company opened in downtown Dayton 70 years ago, and now employs more than 500 people.

Morris Furniture Company launched a special sweepstakes in September that continues for 70 days. One winner has been selected each day, with at least 70 winners sharing in a guaranteed minimum $100,000 giveaway.

The company continues to expand with two more showrooms opening within the next month. The sixth Morris Home showroom and eleventh Ashley HomeStore will open in Columbus near Polaris Fashion Place. The company has operated Ashley HomeStore showrooms in Columbus since 2005.
