Oak Furniture Land opened its first store in Manchester – its 70th nationwide – on Saturday 23rd April. The 17,000 sqft store has created seven new local jobs and is located at the recently-developed White City Retail Park, Old Trafford. 

The new Manchester superstore also features a Sofa Store concession.

Paul Burgham, director of retail operations, says: “We’re delighted to open our first store in Manchester and our 70th in the country. The North-west has always been an important region for us going all the way back to 2010 when we opened our second-ever store in Bolton. The Manchester store joins our existing Bolton and Oldham stores in the Greater Manchester area. 

“Seventy stores is a fantastic milestone for us and it illustrates the continuing demand for solid hardwood furniture across the country. We plan to increase the number of new stores in the coming year and give customers across the country even more furniture choice.”
