Town centre move for Furniture Market...
The owners of a furniture and antiques business who had to move from Station Hill to make way for developers are preparing to open in a new Bury St Edmunds town centre location. Lindsay Foreman and Dominic Everitt are opening Furniture Market in the former Mill House Fabrics building in Brentgovel Street on Saturday January 28.
The shop will offer opportunities for other small businesses to rent stalls and cabinets selling furniture, antiques and collectibles.
Lindsay said: “We want to offer a mix of all types of furniture and collectibles from modern to vintage or retro and our stallholders will also cater for the current trends of shabby chic and painted furniture. There’ll also be items such as glassware, china and curios. We’re very much looking forward to being in the town centre and our customers are eagerly awaiting the opening.”
Stalls and cabinets are still available for other business people to hire. Those taking a stall will share some of the shop work, at the moment expected to be two days a month.
Mark Cordell, Chief Executive of the Business Improvement District organisation Ourburystedmunds, commented: “We’ve had a great start to the new year in the town centre with premises that had been vacant opening up with a new look and offering something different for the town centre. I wish Furniture Market every success.”
Furniture Market is at 8 Brentgovel Street and will be officially opened at 10am on Saturday January 28 by the Borough Mayor Councillor Julia Wakelam. Trading hours will then be 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sundays.
