Online furniture retailer Mypad is to open a 1,000 sq ft showroom at local home interiors shop Morton & Morton. The showroom which will open on Saturday 28th September will remain true to the online Mypad concept and all sales transactions will be paperless and made via ipad docking stations in store.
Managing Director Paul Clark said the opportunity to become a multi-channel retailer was too good to turn down, ‘Mypad has doubled its sales expectations this year already proving that providing an online but local furniture concept does work. We have decided to open the Morton & Morton showroom to focus on our large range of upholstery in both fabrics and leather. At present we undertake individual home visits to showcase our fabric ranges, but the new facility will allow people to visit at their leisure. It will allow us to continue offering our high quality but affordably priced ranges online, with in excess of 1500 products, and to also allow clients to see, feel and touch the quality furniture which is not available anywhere else in the Channel islands.’
The contemporary Mypad showroom will benefit from the excellent parking facilities at the Morton & Morton facility in St Peter. It will showcase key brands, including cabinet ranges from a leading UK designer, and fitted bedroom furniture from top European manufacturers.
In addition, the Mypad.je website is to be upgraded with an additional 500 new products. The re-launch of the site will coincide with the opening of the showroom. ‘This is an exciting time for us. We are going to continue to offer the levels of service and pricing that customers have come to expect, and will be improving on this with an interior designer available to offer advice, goods on approval and private viewings out of store hours. Mypad is not only providing a retailing concept for the modern age, ensuring that we avoid the high overheads associated with a traditional shop, but is making sure that our customers always come first.’
