Lucas to invest £10m in 75,000sqft store
Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire independent furniture retailer is investing £10m in a new 75,000sqft store and 30,000sqft warehouse
Located on the entrance to Aylesbury on the A41 Bicester Road adjacent to the Aylesbury Vale train station – with links into London Marylebone station – it will be one of the largest independent furniture stores in the south east of England.
The store will be spread over two floors ‘in a light and airy environment’ designed to display the furniture in fully accessorised roomsets.
It will include car parking for more than 100 cars and an in-store café.
‘Lucas has served Aylesbury and the local area for over 120 years and we are very excited to announce our next step in our long history. With an investment of over £10m, this is a real commitment by Lucas to Aylesbury. Lucas will continue to offer the level of service, exceptional advice and product only an independent store can provide,’ says the company.
The warehouse will be build next to the store. ‘This will ensure all the furniture is taken into a modern facility processed through a QA process before being stored on high bay racking awaiting delivery to the customer.’
In addition to electric vehicle charging points, the store will include roof solar panels designed to help meet most of the store’s energy requirements.
Construction is expected to be completed next summer.
