FAR ROCKAWAY, NY -- Empire Closets is one of several local sponsors of episodes one and two of the second season of the web series Retire My Room, an interior design makeover show aimed at senior citizens.

The series has a humanitarian perspective: we perform all of our expert makeovers and there are no economical restrictions on who can receive our services. In the aftermath of disaster, it’s important to recapture a sense of normalcy as soon as possible. In its own way, Retire My Room is helping to do just that.”
