VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada–Moe’s Home Collection will invest $50,000 to expand the third floor of its flagship location here, the third phase of a design-focused expansion that launched in 2011. The plans call to remodel the space into a brand-new retail showroom and have an addition 13,000 square feet of space, which will contain such furniture lines as Moe’s proprietary collections, Copeland Furniture, Surya and Natuzzi Editions.
The expansion is due to an increased demand and the growing success of Moe’s private label collections, the company said. The new space will be styled with Moe’s signature design-forward vignettes, including bedrooms and offices, and which will extend the modern, accessible shopping experience on the store’s lower floors. To facilitate the change, Moe’s will move its stockroom operations to a new 17,000-square-foot warehouse located close by.
“Expanding our flagship store’s showroom is an exciting step for our retail business,” said Sara Samieian, general manager of Moe’s retail division.“Staying as local as possible is a big priority, so we were thrilled to secure a new warehouse space just blocks away from the store.”
She added, “The added space will increase our stock, which means less wait time for pick-up and shipping, including customized pieces. Customers will be able to take home much of our merchandise within a week or two, which is largely unheard of for large-scale furniture retailers.”
