Furniture Outlet Stores, an Essex-based home and garden furniture retailer that promises low prices, has opened a new store in Dagenham, on Rainham Road South.

Hoping to attract shoppers from Essex and greater London, the store is the company’s biggest retail showroom to date. Along with its other two outlets – in Leigh-on-Sea and Wickford – the Dagenham store sells overstocked and end-of-season furniture and accessories from big-name brands.
