Shunk Furniture is recovering from a recent cave-in at its main showroom location, at 364 U.S. 41 in Negaunee Township. During the early morning of Feb. 24, the roof collapsed from heavy snowfall in the back of the store. No one was in the store at the time. Construction is already underway at the store location, and a liquidation sale is set to begin Thursday at all three of Shunk’s stores, including its clearance center, also at 364 U.S. 41 in Negaunee Township, and the 1121 Ridge St. location in Marquette.
