Two local entrepreneurs have announced they are opening new businesses. Doug Samsen will host a grand opening of his Samsen Furniture Outlet the day after Christmas and Jennifer Roberts has launched a photography and design services company..

Samsen’s new store is located in Perrysburg across from Levis Commons. It will offer close-outs, discontinued styles, fabrics and overstocked merchandise. The store will also carry the clearance and scratch and dent furniture from Samsen’s flagship store located on Rt. 51 in Genoa and Fine Designs located in Sylvania.

Doug Samsen is a second-generation owner of the Genoa store opened by his father Bob Samsen in 1954. He said the 6,600 square-foot store will offer warehouse and factory close-outs of brands found at the Genoa store such as Flexsteel, Ashley and Thomasville as well as Craftmaster and Best Chair.


The store manager is Veronica Skyles. Hours are Monday thru Thursday 10-8; Friday and Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 1-5. The phone is 419-873-9300

Jennifer Roberts has opened Aunt Spray, LLC, Creative Visual Company. The company offers photography and design services to local and national clients including on-location, custom, and portrait photography, as well as graphic design/art, technical illustration and architectural rendering.

“Aunt Spray was created as a means of marrying several art forms with design standards to deliver unique products that serve a wide variety of clients,” Roberts said.  “As artists, we provide custom photography with an artistic touch for the family who wants something more than studio portraits. Additionally, we put our artistic stamp on technical illustrations, architectural renderings and graphic design, resulting in products that go much further than the standard visual.”

Aunt Spray specializes in family, maternity, newborn, child, model and artistic portraits, serving clients in the local area. The company’s national design services include 3-D renderings of products and structures, print graphics, technical/scientific illustrations, graphic art and logos.
