East Coast Conversion: Krause's Sofa Factory, the Brea-based furniture retailer, has opened a new Castro Convertibles showroom on Long Island. The store is the first to open since Krause's acquired the 63-year-old Castro Convertibles chain in May, 1993.

Castro Convertibles now has 16 stores in New York, New Jersey and Florida. Krause's operates 67 showrooms in eight states under the Krause's Sofa Factory name.
