Leicester – The owners of Furniture Specialties, April and Bryan Fore held a special VIP event Friday evening (Aug. 10) at their company at the corner of New Leicester Highway and Ramsey Road.
The event was for employees, business associates and their family and friends and was meant to showcase the company’s new showroom and design center, which was recently added to their offices and manufacturing facilities.
Food and drink was part of the festivity as well as the giveaway of a recliner. Live music was enjoyed by those attending and tours of the manufacturing area were conducted by employees while attendees were given the freedom to tour the showroom and design center.
The company has been around since 2004, says April, mainly working with commercial venders. However, in 2015 April and Bryan started planning the showroom and the design center to bring their expertise to the general public.
“It will allow us to reach a local audience we haven’t been able to reach before,” says April about the new design center and showroom opening. “We’ve always been more into the trade professionals (designers and architects). This will allow us to provide our services to the regular public.”
April says it is the commercial design and management projects that have allowed them to open this aspect of their business. “It’s kind of what I’m known for,” April comments. “That’s what I actually love to do!”
A grand opening is planned starting Saturday, August 25th. “We’re going to offer 20% off our sticker price or customers can take a one-year interest-free financing option,” April says.
