St Austell store

Independent home furnishing retailer Furniture World has confirmed it plans to open a new store in Plymouth.

The new store, with details remaining undisclosed, is set to take the place of a B&Q store currently open on Coypool Retail Park, near Marsh Mills.

B&Q has already stated that its branch will close early next year, with Furniture World set to take the unit and make a return to the retail park, which used to occupy the now B&M Homestore.

Furniture World currently operates from three stores across Cornwall including locations at Redruth, St Austell and Newquay, as well as an outlet shop situated in Penzance.

The news follows another furniture retailer, ScS, opening on the site. Sofa specialist ScS confirmed earlier this year that it plans to open three new stores on Boxing Day, with the Coypool Retail Park now marked as its Plymouth spot.
