ATLANTA — JULY 21, 2020 — Wingspire Capital Holdings is pleased to announce the completion of a $30 million senior secured loan to home furnishings retailer Arhaus, LLC to support the company’s daily operations and continued growth.
Wingspire Capital leadership was already familiar with Arhaus and its executive team, and welcomed the opportunity to support a growing and innovative retailer that has been redefining the home furnishing space for more than three decades.
