Wentworth Kitchens Colchester enjoyed a successful open day on 18th March with more than eighty people visiting the new premises. The retailer is a Mereway Premium Partner and its showroom has been based in Colchester since 2001 – the move to a larger showroom will help the store expand its product offering.

Owner Mark Winstanley said: “It was an amazing day with so much positive feedback from customers old and new. Everyone loved how spacious and luxurious the new showroom is with its stunning up to date kitchen displays. There was a lot of interest in the new bedroom and media furniture with several orders taken on the day.”

A home economist from Siemens was on hand to cater for the guests. She demonstrated the benefits of cooking with the latest steam oven technology and produced a selection of savoury treats and cakes through the afternoon.

Bruce Thomas from Mereway added, “It was great to have the opportunity to support Wentworth Kitchens with their expansion plans. Despite the economic uncertainties the market for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms remains strong.  Mark has shown that continuing to invest in a showroom and tap into growth sectors such as bedrooms and media furniture can pay dividends for independent retailers.”

The Deputy Mayor of Colchester Councillor Gerard Oxford was present to cut the ribbon and declare the showroom open.
