Comfy new fit for local owners

A group of Campbell River business people are opening up their own furniture store

The bright yellow awnings are being painted and signs are going up as Island Home Furniture is gearing up for its debut.

The brand-new, locally-owned furniture store is taking up shop inside the former Liquidation World building across the street from the Quinsam Hotel and next door to Walmart.

Owner Sukhi Manhas, a Campbell River business operator of 26 years, has compiled a strong team of personnel and is ready for business.

“We will be carrying brand-name furniture and mattresses,” Manhas said. “Our tagline is ‘Furniture and Mattresses to Fit Your Lifestyle.’”

The store will carry various styles of furniture, including contemporary and Victorian, and will do deliveries.

Sheldon Lightfoot, store manager, said the team is happy to help revitalize the area and support local business.

“It’s nice to utilize an existing empty space that’s available,” Lightfoot said. “When you find something that’s going to work, you use it. And it’s bringing business to Campbell River and it’s helping to revitalize Campbellton.

“We’re looking forward to serving Campbell River and the North Island for many years to come.”

Island Home Furniture is expected to open by mid-August. Renovations began on the building just under a month ago.
