Value retailer Matalan has opened its first UK standalone homestore in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, as it expands its furniture offer.

Matalan has remodelled an existing branch to create the format. 

The refurbished shop incorporates inspirational room sets to showcase the retailer’s furniture range, which was previously only available online. 

Product can be ordered for home delivery using tablets in-store.

Comprising living room, dining room, bedroom and bathroom ranges, the store also houses Matalan’s new nursery furniture range, as well as lighting. 

Matalan Knaresborough store manager Lucy Londesbrough said: “Our customers will benefit from seeing the Matalan furniture ranges up-close and personal as well as purchase matching, trend-led home accessories at the same time.”
