BEDFORD — Boston Interiors will open its first New Hampshire store at the former Hannaford Supermarket on Colby Court.
This will be Boston Interiors’ first showroom outside of the Bay State, where it has seven stores.
“We know we have a strong customer base to the north, so Bedford is a great location for us,” CEO Stefanie Lucas said in a release. “We feel that the community will love having access to a Boston Interiors store close to them.”
The former Hannaford site at 5 Colby Court, inside the Bedford Grove shopping center, has been vacant since the summer of 2016 when a new Hannaford store opened within the old Stop and Shop facility on Kilton Road.
The new Boston Interiors store will be about 21,000 square feet, and is expected to open late this summer, according to the release.
Boston Interiors was founded in 1979 as Boston Bedroom in Brookline Village, Mass. The company has its corporate headquarters in Stoughton, Mass.
“Today, Boston Interiors is still the leading specialty home furnishings retailer serving the Boston metropolitan area, offering customers a distinctive blend of stylish, finely-crafted furniture and accessories, professional design assistance and exceptional value,” according to the company Website.
The furniture retailer carries a wide selection of “mid-priced’’ furniture with clean, modern, classic and casual designs, according to a release.
“The company prides itself on the style, quality and price of their product, the personalized service provided by their design team and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere found in each store,” according to a news release.
Renovation work at the Bedford location has already begun. Brixmor Property Group is also seeking more leasees for the property at 3-5 Colby Court, according to local real estate listings.
Lucas was unavailable to provide additional comments on Monday, including details on how many employees will be hired for the new store.
Boston Interiors has stores in Westborough, Stoughton, Saugus, Natick, Mashpee, Hanover and Burlington, Mass.
