The UK’s largest family-run furniture retailer, Furniture Village is opening a brand-new store at Colchester’s Stane Retail Park, taking its store portfolio to 55.

Located in a prominent standalone location at the front of the park, the new store will offer customers 17,800sq ft of home inspiration, spread over two beautifully styled floors.

The store will officially open on Boxing Day, although work is already underway to transform the unit ahead of December.

Visitors will be invited to explore collections for every room of the house, from sofas and chairs, to beds, dining tables and storage. Handpicked by an expert team who are passionate about design and quality, the store will also feature exclusive designs from many of the world’s leading brands such as Harrison Spinks, Ercol and Parker Knoll.

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments: “We are delighted to be opening our 55th store in Colchester in December. Stane Retail Park is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.”

The store will create a total of nine new roles with expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers.

Developed by The Churchmanor Estates Company plc, Stane Retail Park is just four miles from Colchester’s town centre and can be easily accessed via Junction 26 of the A12. Furniture Village will join retailers such as M&S, Mountain Warehouse, Superdrug, Cook, Aldi and B&Q, helping to enhance the visitor shopping experience even further, by offering inspirational designs for every room in the home.

Matt Cloke, Development Director at Churchmanor comments: “We are delighted to welcome Furniture Village to Stane Retail Park, bringing a new brand to Colchester. Taking advantage of the full height glazed frontages to three sides, their new showroom is the ideal fit for unit C, and we look forward to seeing them open before the end of the year.”
