London furniture sales 'rising' as Harveys open new flagship store on Tottenham Court Road

Press release December 17, 2009 Economy

Harveys open a brand new flagship store concept on Tottenham Court Road as new figures reveal furniture buying in the capital is on the rise.

26th December, the day when shoppers traditionally dash out to kit their homes out in new furniture at rock bottom prices will also be the date that Harveys open a brand new concept store on Tottenham Court Road.  The store will carry an exciting new range of furniture styles in contemporary new designs akin to the savvy, design led London shopper.

Statistics from the British Retail Consortium and KPMG for November show that furniture purchases continued to do well despite the current economic climate.

According to the organisations, interest in furniture was boosted by a range of discounts available.

Commenting on the data, Stephen Robertson noted that big-ticket items are "doing well" in London.

"These are great figures - the best sales growth for three years," he remarked. "These figures show London retailers have had a very encouraging start to Christmas."

Head of retail at KPMG Helen Dickinson recently claimed that UK sales of furniture "had another good month" in November as more people look to get items in before the end of the year. 

Karen Broderick trend watch expert at Harveys commented on the opening of the brand new Tottenham Court Road store:

“The figures continue to bear out what we are seeing at Harveys and we are delighted to be announcing the opening of our new store on Tottenham Court Road on 26th December.  I think people will be very surprised by the product they see in there, it is certainly a welcome addition to the solid range we already carry”.
