Rug importer and manufacturer Shalom Brothers Inc., which was previously based in New York City for 45 years, recently moved into a new 4,500-square-foot
showroom located at 145 Industrial Drive, Little Ferry, New Jersey.  The new showroom is close to Secaucus, NJ, and a short distance from New York City.

“We’re growing and we didn’t think Manhattan would have been able to give us that kind of growth,” says Rafi Amirian, vice president of Shalom Brothers.
“Now we have loading docks and it’s much easier to drop-ship. We’re seeing tremendous growth in our online business, and it just makes sense to move where we can drop-ship easier.”
