Furniture retailer Lee Longlands has officially unveiled its latest store to the public in Kidderminster.
The Midlands-based company launched the new branch at Crossley Retail Park on Carpet Trades Way following its conversion from the former Furniture Barn store.
Steve Tressler, director of Lee Longlands, and Deputy Mayor of Kidderminster, Councillor Nicky Gayle, were on hand to cut the ribbon at the store – the company’s seventh in its 114 year history.
For weeks the team have been working hard to prepare for the unveiling with the sign carrying the famed Lee Longlands name erected earlier this week.
The furniture expert, which also has stores on Broad Street in Birmingham city centre and Bedford Street in Leamington Spa, chose Kidderminster after research found demand for its product and service in the town.
Speaking about the opening Mr Tressler said: “Today is a great day in the history of Lee Longlands.
“It’s a privilege to be here to unveil this new store and we’re confident it will be everything our loyal customers imagined.
“Opening this branch secured eight jobs but simultaneously tapped into the demand we have from a large customer base in and around Kidderminster.
“We’re delighted with how it looks and we can’t wait for people to come down, meet our expert staff and see the quality that Lee Longlands has built its reputation on.”
