CITY OF PEWAUKEE At least one of the two Waukesha County American TV facilities has found a new use after the home appliance retailer closed earlier this year.

Sussex-based Quad/Graphics will be leasing just under 100,000 square feet of the former American TV distribution center at W228-N2801 Duplainville Road, spokeswoman Claire Ho said. She added Quad plans to use the space as a warehouse to store paper rolls and other materials.

Quad already has a print production facility nearby at W224 N3322 Duplainville Road.

When American TV announced its closure in February, the company shuttered 11 locations across several states.

The future for the more prominent American TV location off Highway F near Interstate 94 remains unclear. It was purchased in April by real estate investor John Schlueter, president of Oak Creek-based Frontline Commercial Real Estate LLC. Frontline also purchased the former American TV store in Brown Deer, along with a vacant parcel next to the Oak Creek store.
