Bayside’s Dinette & Furniture Center Inc. on Northern Boulevard will close at the end of the month.

A Bayside furniture business open for nearly 40 years is closing for good.

Bayside’s Dinette & Furniture Center Inc., located at 216-21 Northern Blvd., is owned and operated by David Yousefzadeh and has served the Bayside community since 1978. The store will shut its doors at the end of January.

Yousefzadeh was born in Kashan, Iran, in 1944. A diligent student, he qualified for academic scholarships and moved to the United States to pursue his college and graduate education. Yousefzadeh returned briefly to Iran in 1969 to marry his wife, Madeline, and the couple settled back in the U.S. a few years later.

Since opening the store with his wife in 1978, Yousefzadeh has worked seven days a week at the business, serving multiple generations within the community.

“David embodies the American Dream,” said Rebecca Sassouni, Yousefzadeh’s daughter. “He worked devotedly and tirelessly, served his customers, built a family with his wife and three daughters and provided each child with wonderful college and graduate educations.”

According to the business’ Facebook page, the store is running some deals for customers before closing.

Last week, Yousefzadeh was presented with a commemorative citation by Councilman Paul Vallone’s office in recognition of his decades of service to the community.

“The Dinette & Furniture Center has provided incredible service for years and will be sorely missed by the Bayside community,” Vallone said. “I wish David and his family all the best in their future endeavors.”
