THE future of the city's former Rollerworld site has been revealed, after London's largest furniture clearance company announced plans to open a new flagship store in Colchester. 

Furniture Outlet is launching a 30,000 sq ft showroom inside 13 Moorside, which was home the cherished roller-skating rink for 32 years before it shut down in November 2022. 

The new addition to the city, officially opening next Friday, aims to offer an array of affordable pieces for every home - from décor to furniture.

Shoppers can expect to see everything from chic sofas to elegant dining sets, functional storage solutions, and fashionable accessories.

Emphasising convenience and efficiency, the new Furniture Outlet store will be open daily and offer ample in-store stock in a bid to avoid any frustrating wait times for customers.

Purchases can be taken home on the same day or scheduled for delivery at a more convenient time, as the store will have its own dedicated delivery teams and fleet of vans.

Ian Bellis, director at Furniture Outlet, said: "We are excited to bring our unique furniture shopping experience to the vibrant community of Colchester.

"With our extensive range of products, unmissable bargains and friendly staff, we look forward to becoming a go-to destination for everyone’s home furnishing needs in the area."

The new Colchester branch strengthens Furniture Outlet's existing portfolio, joining branches in Dagenham, Wickford, and Leigh.

The company also plans to open additional Furniture Outlet stores in the future.

Regular updates on new stock and promotions are available on the company’s social media platforms.

The store will be open Monday to Saturday, 9am to 6pm, and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.

It will offer free delivery on purchases over £300, 0 per cent APR finance, and "guaranteed lowest prices".

The new Furniture Outlet aims to continue the company ethos of 'providing high-quality furniture choices at unbeatable prices', further bolstering its reputation as a premier destination for cost-effective, high-quality furniture.

Over the past 17 years, Furniture Outlet has made a name for itself in the furniture industry, and they're now bringing their passion for "unbeatable value" and "exceptional service" to Colchester.
