WREN Kitchens has invested over £1million in transforming its state-of-the-art kitchen showroom at Tamworth’s Ventura Retail Park.
The UK’s number one kitchen retailer has created 23 new jobs in what is the biggest kitchen showroom in Tamworth. The new showroom opens at 9am on Friday, 14th June.
The former 10,000sq.ft. Poundstretcher building now encompasses the largest display of kitchens in the area and for the first time, an interior design studio that can be pre-booked by local interior designers. The studio has a large range of samples, design books and inspirational mood boards, as well as Apple iMac computers and comfortable surroundings to assist in the design of any dream kitchen.
To launch the showroom, the Mayor Councillor of Tamworth Richard Kingstone will officially cut the ribbon. Attendees will be able to see kitchens in full 3D using virtual reality headsets and test the latest smart kitchen technology including Alexa and Google Home Hub to control kitchen lighting and appliances.
Wren Kitchens General Showroom Manager, Peter O’Meara, will be taking the reins at Tamworth after relocating from the nearby Merry Hill Showroom.
“It has taken three months to completely transform the building and the substantial amount we’ve invested demonstrates our commitment to the local area,” said Wren Kitchens Tamworth General Showroom Manager, Peter
“Our friendly team are looking forward to welcoming the community to the official opening on Friday, where they’ll be treated with celebratory nibbles and drinks whilst being inspired with our array of kitchen design ideas.”
