Oak Furniture Land's 2018 expansion programme has started with the opening of two new stores in Somerset – Weston Super Mare, and Bath.

The 15,137 sqft Bath store, which opened on 5th May, is spread over three floors, and is located on London Road. It is one of the company’s first new stores to be based in a high street location, and has created six new jobs.

Jason Davies, regional manager, says: “Our Bath store is our fourth in Somerset and a particularly special one to add to our portfolio due to the high street location. The store features a great variety of our hardwood products, including a handful of brand new ranges that we’re delighted to showcase to our customers.”

The next to open was in Weston Super Mare. With a mezzanine floor, the 14,568 sqft shop is located on the Gallagher Retail Park, Marchfields Way, and has created six new jobs.

“Following on from the success of our Taunton and Yeovil stores, we’re delighted to open our first store in Weston-Super-Mare," says Jason. "The Weston-Super-Mare store will play a significant role in our expansion programme across the UK for 2018.”

Oak Furniture Land opened 22 new stores last year.
