Independent furniture retailer Worthington Brougham Furniture has confirmed plans to relocate its showroom.
Currently situated on Pendle Rd in Clitheroe, the business has revealed it will move to 50–54 Market Street in Chorley during October this year.
“Our old showroom in Clitheroe will remain open until October, whereupon we will be relocating the majority of our operations and stock to the new building in Chorley,” the business said. “Clitheronians will no doubt be aware that Pendle Mill is due to be demolished next year to make way for a new residential care home complex. While we hold a deep nostalgia for the building, with its’ well-lit, wide open spaces, and unique experiences such as that time the road exploded, there’s no denying this move is long overdue.
“We’ve been struggling to fit everything into the showroom and warehouse for the past two years, and manhandling sofas up and down Pendle Road from the showroom to our warehouse has not been ideal.
“Our new showroom in Chorley will offer a more central location for customers in the North West, conveniently located just off the M61. Visitors from as far away as Liverpool and Manchester can make the trip in an hour or less, and we remain accessible for customers in the Ribble Valley and surrounding areas. It’s also much larger than our current location, allowing us to offer even more heavily discounted products.
“Whether you’re buying online or in store you’ll see even more choice, from brand new discounted sofas and suites to more wood furniture, homewares and accessories. We’ve been listening to what our customers have to say, and you’ll be pleased to hear that we will also be featuring the discounted rugs, fitted lighting and dining furniture that everyone has been asking about.
“We hope our local customers in and around Clitheroe won’t be too disappointed that we weren’t able to stick with our original plan to stay open in town. The increasing retail rental costs mean it’s more important than ever for us to keep our prices as low as possible.
“Keeping our business to just the one, extra large outlet allows us to keep to the low prices and big brand discounts that everyone has come to expect from us, without compromising on service or quality. We’ll continue to keep a close eye on the local area, and won’t rule out reopening in Clitheroe at a later date.”
