Almost 20 years after building an extension to house an atrium entrance, homewares and bedroom departments and a purpose-built carpet warehouse, retailer Glasswells is renovating the atrium at its Bury St Edmunds store.
The work was planned and managed by Glasswells' visual merchandiser & interior designer, Sarah Norris. The start of work was delayed by lockdown, and then by extensive flooding at the end of August, but was back under way by the start of this month.
The update, which will see the integration of more technology, is just part of a significant overhaul programme, which will also see the modernisation of the home accessories and lighting departments.
“Glasswells always strives 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 to match this," comments MD, Paul Glasswell. "We are a forward-thinking company and understand how important it is to move with the times and embrace change. Whilst the store will be given a fresh new look, our ethos of offering the widest choice, at the best value, with the highest customer service will remain the same.”
The store is open as usual while the work takes place.
