San Diego-based Mor Furniture for Less has opened two new stores in the Palm Springs area. A company statement said the opening June 21 in Cathedral City followed the retailer’s May debut in nearby Rancho Mirage.

Both stores are in the Coachella Valley region of eastern Riverside County. The latest opening, at 67555 E. Palm Canyon Drive in Cathedral City, brings the company’s total to 26 stores in seven states.

The newest store includes a showroom with the company’s main product lineup, with a kids and teens section, clearance center, and home delivery and customer pickup warehouse.

The two new locations are Mor’s first in the Palm Springs area, occupying formerly vacant retail spaces and creating between 40 and 50 jobs, the statement said.
