Hardwood furniture retail chain Oak Furniture Land has opened its first store in Coventry, taking its portfolio to 73 showrooms across the UK.

The new 12,000sq ft store officially launched on 27 August 2016 and is situated in the former Mountain Warehouse premises in the Central Six Retail Park on Warwick Road.

Oak Furniture Land currently has three other stores in the West Midlands area, with the Coventry location becoming its first in the city, with the opening marked by the Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Lindsley Harvard.

The new store, which follows the recent opening of its Salisbury branch last month, also becomes the first dedicated furniture showroom at the retail park, which has created a number of new jobs.

Featuring a variety of different ranges, the new store also houses a sofastore.com concession with over 75 different collections.

Paul Burgham, the director of Retail Operations says: “We’re delighted to be opening our first store in Coventry, this will take us to a total of four stores in the West Midlands. Our Midlands customers have been loyal to us over the years and we are looking forward to extending our 100% solid hardwood furniture offering to customers in the region and making shopping our furniture ranges more accessible. We know when customers shop with us they return time and time again and we are looking forward to serving our new Coventry customers for many years to come.”

The Lord Mayor of Coventry, Councillor Lindsley Harvard, added: “I am delighted to be opening the new superstore with Lady Godiva – the ambassador of Coventry City, and I wish them every success for the future.”
