The next phase of an ongoing £1m refurbishment project at Glasswells in Bury St Edmunds was completed this week, with the opening of an new flooring studio.

The new-look hard flooring area includes interactive screens and extra-large product samples, and coincides with the appointment of Andrew Boreham as Glasswells’ new flooring department manager and buyer.

MD Paul Glasswell comments: "This ambitious refurbishment, the most comprehensive in Glasswells’ history, has all been planned with the customer in mind. We have always strived to offer our customers the latest and most stylish furnishing options and it is essential that our environment provides visitors with the very best shopping experience.

"We are a forward-thinking company and I understand how important it is to move with the times and embrace change. Whilst we continue to work through the store and give each department a fresh, new look, our ethos of offering the widest choice, at the best value, with the highest customer service remains the same.”

The work so far has involved an extension and refit of the in-store restaurant and full refurbishment of the furniture and bedroom display areas. The next phase of the project will see the carpet and rug departments enjoy a complete overhaul.
