A NEW furniture store is to open its doors in Kingswinford on Saturday (March 9) with a £1,000 prize giveaway, and hopes of breathing breathe new life into the village shopping area.

Furniture for the Home is expecting hundreds of people to drop in over opening weekend.

Customers will be able to enjoy prosecco, finger food and cakes to celebrate the launch of the new store which will offer a range of home and garden furniture plus accessories spread over two floors.

There’ll also be a range of discounts offered during opening weekend and balloons to keep little ones entertained.

The old Amblecote Furnishers building in Market Street has undergone a makeover thanks to a £50,000 investment by Furniture for the Home, which already operates a successful online retail business and store in Sedgley.

Simon Foster, founder of Furniture for the Home, said: “Since we announced we were opening our second store in Kingswinford, we have been inundated with good wishes and interest from local people who are delighted to see a furniture shop come back to their high street.

“They believe it will breathe new life into their retail offer and we can’t wait until Saturday so we can get started and hopefully attract new and existing customers to have a look around.

“There’s lots of new products to see and we will have some exciting new ranges to what we have at our existing shop in Sedgley. Consumers can expect the same personal shopping experience though, with the emphasis on combining friendly service with expert knowledge.

“We view the high street as a critical part of our business and look forward to becoming part of the Kingswinford community and supporting upcoming local events and fundraisers.”

He added: “For one weekend only, we will also be giving away over £1,000 of furniture.”
