Sopha have today announced their Grand Opening will be held on Saturday 27th April with an action packed event starting at 10:30am and finishing by 5:30pm. Bank Street Car Park will be FREE for the day.
The new furniture store which stands on the site of the old George Hotel on the A38 in Highbridge, took 2 and a half years to build and renovate. The store went through a process of ‘soft launching’ in November 2018 and has been training their staff and putting together the finishing touches before this official opening celebration.
The event is set to include live music and entertainment, street food and a craft fair. The opening ceremony is to be carried out in the presence of the town mayor. The event co-ordinated with the assistance of Silver Spur Events will also see rides and inflatables for the younger ones plus visits from BARB and the Burnham Fire Brigade are planned.
The first 100 customers will receive a FREE gift bag plus a raffle will see hundreds of pounds worth of prizes given away.
The day will also see the first stage of the launch of Sopha’s summer range plus a warehouse clearance and a range of special offers will be available for the day. Some furniture manufacturers will also be making an appearance in store so you’ll get a chance to ‘meet the makers’.
As well as taking place in Sopha’s large car park and the store itself, the event will also take over part of Bank Street. Access to the Bank Street car park will be from Market Street only, parking will be free for those visiting the event.
Founders Matt & Emily Scott said “after almost three years of hard work on our building we’re really pleased to be able to officially declare our store open. It means so much to us that we’re a furniture store with a difference and we’re really looking forward to giving something back to the local community. We’d love to see as many people as possible coming for what we hope will be a great day out.”
