For nearly 60 years, South Coast Furniture & Mattress has operated on Calle de los Molinos in the same location. The family-owned business buys, sells and trades furniture.

Recently, the business began going through a bit of a face-lift through a community development grant provided by the city of San Clemente. Owners Dale and Mary Ross said the store will change their familiar awning and frontage to a more modern and bright look.

The furniture store is more accessible than in recent months because of the underground telephone wiring work that was being done in the area. Construction had been taking place since February 2015, making parking and accessibility difficult. A few months ago, the city of San Clemente celebrated the “Last Pole Out” of the Calle de los Molinos area, which marked the end of a project to remove power lines and replace streetlights in order to beautify the neighborhood.

A grand re-opening of the business will likely take place in the next few months.

“The family has been involved in the business all these years, and we like the business,” Dale said, adding that he worked at the business under his brother for 25 years until he retired. His nephews and other family members still work at the store. “We try to give good service and reasonable prices. A lot of our business is referred to through word-of-mouth.”
