RC Willey, the Utah-based furniture chain owned by Warren Buffett’s conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway Inc., announced Tuesday that it will build a new store in the Delta Shores development, a planned community of shopping centers and 5,000 homes along Interstate 5 south of the Pocket and Meadowview neighborhoods.

RC Willey said it plans to open the 160,000-square-foot Sacramento store in the fall of 2017, saying it will be an anchor tenant in the development.

Officials said the store will employ about 130.

The store will have a large showroom and be a retail site selling furniture, appliances, electronics, mattresses, floor coverings and related accessories.

In a statement, RC Willey CEO Scott Hymas said: “The Sacramento area has been a great market for RC Willey. The current RC Willey store in Rocklin has been very successful, and we are confident the new store will allow us to serve more customers in the Sacramento area.”
