Northern Ireland based floorcoverings retailer Wood Floor Warehouse has opened a showroom in Warrington, its first in England.

The privately owned retailer—which already has two stores, in Bangor and Belfast—has been planning the North West England store since the turn of the year.

woodFloorWarehouseWood Floor Warehouse has converted an 11,500sqft vacant building on the town’s Winwick Road, which had most recently been used as a snooker hall.

It represents an investment of around £1m by the company, and could be a precursor to further stores opening across England, with London and the North among its target areas.

Wood Floor Warehouse specialises in stocked solid, engineered and laminate flooring, from brands including Egger, Kronotex and Quick-Step.
