Furniture firm to open “largest outlet location in UK”

Furniture outlet business Joseph James Furniture Outlet LLP has announced plans to open a new store in Stockport.

Situated at a former Debenhams site in the heart of Stockport, the new store features 90,000sqft of retail space and will officially open early next month.

Commenting on the new store, Joseph Shenton, Co-Owner at Joseph James Furniture Outlet LLP, said: “Our new Stockport store is due to open on Saturday 3rd February 2024. It is in the heart of Stockport, in the Former Debenhams Department store. We chose this location for two main reasons.

“The first, being the size of the store, and the second, the great location. Having a 90,000sqft capacity allows us to display a ludicrous amount of stock. We believe this will make us the largest furniture outlet location in the country. We want to give customers an unrivalled selection of sofas, dining and bedroom furniture. The location is ideal. Located on the A6, a busy road into Manchester, it has a very strong retail presence.”

The company has invested around £100,000 into the refurbishment after “resourceful planning”, and comes after nine months of work to get the store secured.

“It has been absolutely worth the wait,” Joseph added. “We have had overwhelming positive feedback from our past and hopefully future customers on social media.

“We are seeing a large demand for dining furniture at the moment, meaning we have increased our selection accordingly. As always, there is a demand for branded furniture but cheaper, which is what we do best.”

The business also plans to add a further three physical showroom locations during the year, bringing its total portfolio of outlet stores to five by the end of 2024.
