City Furniture Opens Miami Store in Trendy Design District
2017 by Larry Thomas in Business Strategy, Industry, Store Openings
Florida retailer City Furniture has opened a store on the edge of Miami’s trendy Design District that features a wide selection of modern furniture and includes the company’s first-ever wine bar.
The company said the 26,000 square-foot store also features cutting-edge technology that “will give shoppers a preview of the furniture industry’s brick-and-mortar future.”
“We’re able to bring shoppers what hasn’t been available in small furniture stores nearby – a deep selection of quality, on-trend Miami Modern furniture at amazingly affordable prices, delivered to their home by the next day,” said Andrew Koenig, vice president of operations and marketing.
The wine bar is the retailer’s first, and is adjacent to KC Café, a feature already in many City Furniture locations. A happy hour will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and a barista will be on hand to make coffee drinks.
The retailer said the wine bar will be made available to local non-profit groups for informal events and meetings, noting that the wine bar concept will be added to City Furniture locations that have a KC Café.
“Creating a relaxing, effortless customer experience drives our team,” said Koenig. “Our customers want to relax while they’re here, and with the wine bar, they’ll be able to sip a glass of wine or a craft beer as they shop.”
He said the Miami store opening is the first of four new or renovated store projects in South and Central Florida scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.
The retailer currently operates 17 City Furniture stores and 12 Ashley HomeStores.
