Oak Furniture Land, the UK’s largest retailer of solid hardwood furniture, donated a 4ft cake replica of a bronze dragon to the Welsh Dragon Project and Wrexham Museum at the grand opening of its first store in Wrexham on Saturday 5th August.

The dragon cake is a replica of the 80ft bronze dragon planned to be erected in Wrexham as part of the Welsh Dragon Project. Oak Furniture Land commissioned the amazing confectionery creation to donate to the community and to show their support for the Welsh Dragon Project.

The new 12,535 sq ft showroom is located at the Border Retail Park, and features over 17 ranges - including the newly launched St Ives range – a classic country style. The showroom also features a large range of its sofas and armchairs, all with 100 per cent hardwood frames andstrong high-grade steel serpentine spring bases for support and durability.

Phil Groom, Oak Furniture Land Wrexham store manager, says: "The bronze dragon cake to support the Welsh Dragon project is our way of saying a big thank you to our customers and the local community. Our Welsh customers are important to us, which is why we are opening our sixth store in the region. The new showroom in Wrexham store will give local shoppers even more furniture choice. We know once customers shop with us they return time and time again, so we are looking forward to serving the community for many more years to come."

Paul McKenna, regional manager at Oak Furniture Land, says: “Following on from the success of our Cardiff, Swansea, Haverfordwest, Newport and Merthyr Tydfil stores we’re really excited to have opened our sixth Welsh store."
