A Right Royal Celebration at Middletons Coventry

Saturday 26th January 2019 was a very special occasion for us. It was the day of our Coventry store opening and we had a jam-packed day of entertainment lined up!

Our opening celebrations kicked off just after half past ten, when the arrival of a regal visitor caused quite a stir at the Warwickshire Retail Park.

We were delighted to be joined by Heidi Agan, the official Kate Middleton lookalike, for our grand opening. 

After greeting our guests and customers, Heidi cut the ribbon and officially declared Middletons Coventry open!

Once the ribbon was cut, the Coventry Festival band kicked off the celebrations with a number of rousing tunes which gathered crowds.

Their rendition of the Guardians of the Galaxy film soundtrack went down particularly well with listeners of all ages!

Inside, our wonderful members of staff gave out plenty of goody bags and showed customers around the new showroom.

Everyone was encouraged to put their feet up and experience our beautifully hand-crafted furniture while enjoying a cup of tea.

Meanwhile, Heidi posed for photographs before pausing for a well-deserved rest on one of our award-winning adjustable beds.

As you can see, she was impressed with just how comfortable they are!

Sales Director Wayne Greet said: “We’re delighted to have opened in Coventry and we’d like to thank the local community for giving us such a warm welcome. Our door is always open and we love sitting down with our customers for a cup of tea and a friendly chat.

“For those who can’t get to the store, our free, door-to-store taxi service is now up and running, so everyone can come and see what we have to offer.”

We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who joined us on the day. Make sure you pop back and see us soon! You'll find us at Unit 14 Warwickshire Retail Park, Kynner Way, Coventry CV3 2SB.
