Customers have travelled from out of county for opening day at the re-located Direct Furniture store in Bury St Edmunds.

The family business, which was established 16 years ago, has moved from three buildings in Osier Road to the Bartons Retail Park in Barton Road.

The new unit brings all the items of furniture – including popular Loaf and West Elm brands – into one, large space, and there is more car parking space than before.

Brothers Jonathan and Tom Carter, who run the store, said hundreds of people had turned out for opening day on Saturday, February 9, coming from “all over”.

“The furniture draws a lot of people from London,” Jonathan said. “It’s gone very well.”

Sofas, dining tables, beds, sideboards, coffee tables and decorative items like mirrors and soft furnishings are all available.

At one time, the business also had a shop in Station Hill.

The new store is a “long-term move” for the company, Jonathan added.
