Bag a bargain sofa at new Choice shop

Echo: Aaron Dunn store manager with Darren Pritchard area manager Aaron Dunn store manager with Darren Pritchard area manager

BARGAIN hunters checked out the opening of a new discount store.

Choice opened its Home Outlet Clearance Store, in Stadium Way, near Rayleigh Weir, yesterday in the former Comet store.

Prices were slashed by 70 per cent for the big opening of the store, which boosts 10,000sq ft of discount furniture and homeware retail space.

Choice managing director Con Donovan said the company was selling so much furniture in its other stores in Hadleigh, Basildon, Wickford and Grays that it made sense to expand.

He said: “Without our customers and their support, we could never have achieved the success we have.

“We feel as a company continuing to offer excellent quality goods at discounted prices is a way of paying our customers back.

“The real pleasure for us and the family is knowing that, at this present time, we employ more than 500 people, without whom we could never have achieved what we now have.

“I hope people will be pleased with our prices and we hope to please our customers much more as we have done in previous years, offering goods at fantastic prices.”

The new home outlet store will be open every day and will sell furniture, sofas, lighting, canvas and framed pictures, mirrors, paint, wallpaper, garden furniture, hardware, mattresses and beds.

Mr Donovan said the Essexbased company was enjoying success, despite fears over the wider economy.

He added: “It gives the company great satisfaction in these troubled times we are still employing people and it makes us feel extremely proud.

“Our intention is to continue bringing in more ranges of goods.

“The popularity of our current line of home goods has enabled us to open this furniture outlet in Stadium Way.”

_______
Interesting,so for example a small sofa that was a return/out of style etc...that would normally be priced at say £200 in the choice store was priced at £60 for the opening day..? or are they using the manufactures recommended retail price(which can be what ever they say it is)..? and that works out at £200 anyway.
70 % off everything (Choice price) sounds too good to be true...and why tell everyone about it 1 day after the event., ohh well lucky i wasn't interested.

Oh dear, not shopping snobbery.... just because it's a discount store... I hope.

Sounds good to me. Loads of people can't afford the ridiculously inflated prices of furniture these day.

Most of us make do with washable covers we can tart up our old ones with. However, sounds like a good place to bag a bargain to me. Advert or no advert.
