ScS has announced it will be opening three new stores on Boxing Day, taking the furniture retailer to a total of 100 retail units across the UK.
An investment in the region of £1m is being made at each of the three stores which are opening in Straiton (Edinburgh), Plymouth and Thanet (Kent), providing a significant boost to the local economies.
The new ScS in Plymouth will be the first in the South-west of England, a region key to expansion and growth, and a demonstration of the furniture retailer’s plans to target all areas of the UK. The addition of the Thanet and Straiton stores goes on to reinforce and strengthen the company’s position in their retrospective regions.
More than 40 jobs have been created including sales managers, sales professionals, and branch admin and manager roles across all stores, with current vacancies still available.
David Knight, chief executive, says: “We are looking forward to bringing the ScS offering to even more people and finally reaching 100 stores after years of hard work and dedication."
The company is planning events to take place at the stores as a celebration of its 100th store launching.
