Independent invests £50k into second store opening

Independent furniture retailer Furniture for the Home has invested £50,000 in a new showroom.

The business is progressing with a full refurbishment of the old Amblecote Furnishers building on Market Street in the Black Country.

The investment will see the retailer expand to two stores, adding to its existing location in Sedgley.

The retailer plans to open the new store during March and will create three new jobs for the local area.

It will feature a range of home and garden furniture and accessories over two floors.

Commenting on the investment, Simon Foster, owner of Furniture for the Home, said: “The high street is back when it comes to purchasing furniture, with consumers keen to touch, feel and see how their purchases could look in a home environment.

“We’ve seen this in the massive rise in footfall we have enjoyed in our first store in Sedgley and this got us thinking about a second store that could service a different part of the Black Country.

“When the Amblecote Furnishers site came available, we knew it was perfect for what we were looking to achieve from a location, parking and size point of view.”
