Apr 2012

BrightHouse, the nation’s leading rent-to-own chain, specialising in the sale of home electronics, domestic appliances and household furniture, is continuing its expansion programme.  This weekend they’re opening a new store at Unit 5 Lime Square, Openshaw.

The 2,000 sq. ft. store, which will employ 8 staff, will have its Grand Opening on Saturday 14th April.  To mark the occasion, BrightHouse will be hosting three days of family fun in the run up to tomorrow's official opening to welcome the first customers to the new store. 

Billy & Lilly, the BrightHouse bears, will be on hand to entertain along with a DJ, and children will be able to have their face painted and enjoy creations from balloon modellers. There will also be fantastic opening offers on some of the leading brands.

Jackie Smith, Store Manager said: “We’re very excited about joining the community in Openshaw.  BrightHouse offers state-of-the art flat screen TVs from Samsung and Phillips, cutting edge laptops from Acer, the latest washing machines from Hotpoint, and contemporary sofa designs, to name but a few of the amazing products available on an affordable weekly payment basis.

With BrightHouse, it’s personal.  We like to keep on first name terms with customers so they feel comfortable with our service. Pop in and say hello and we’ll be sure to remember your name next time you come in. That’s what makes us different.”

Lime Square is anchored by an 80,000 sq ft Morrisons store and is managed by the retail property specialists Dransfield Properties Ltd. The second phase of the development opened in February this year bringing a host of new retailers to the district centre. Other retailers at Lime Square include B&M, Poundland, Greggs and the charity Extra Care. Store 21 is also opening at the centre as well as Card Factory.
