Nick, Ron, Frank and Pete in the studio of AM 1540 WADK Newport

Podcast: A conversation with NIROPE – Nick, Ron, and Pete Cardi of Cardi’s Furniture


It was a leaky rowboat that Nick, Ron, and Pete named as kids, using the first two letters of their first names and that’s how the name NIROPE was born.

The stores, Cardi’s was started as a general store by Nick, Ron, and Pete’s grandmother, Rosa. Now, some 90 years later it is among the largest furniture stores in the country, with 20 locations and hundreds of employees.

Nick, Ron, and Pete joined me on this edition of The Open Forum on AM 1540 WADK Newport.
