Retailer Wren Kitchens has opened its 100th UK showroom in Greenwich, which it claims is the largest in London.
Measuring 20,000 sq ft, the showroom features 73 displays and has created 23 jobs spanning designers, .
The showroom boasts a mezzanine floor featuring two virtual reality studios where customers can explore a full-sized model of their kitchen in 3D.
These studios allow them to walk around the layout of their new kitchen, as well as interact with appliances, drawers and storage solutions.
In addition, the showroom has an interactive appliance centre where customers can get hands on with appliance technologies such as self-cleaning ovens, voice-controlled lighting and hobs with built in extraction.
Completing the Greenwich showroom are 15 open plan design suites where customers can work with their designer, viewing both 3D and 2D images and plans of their kitchen on a 55” screen.
In celebration of the Greenwich store opening, and to give something back to the local community, Wren Kitchens and appliance brand Neff donated £10,000 worth of food parcels to The Greenwich Foodbank.
Showroom manager of the Greenwich store Tony Blanche said: “Christmas is the time for giving, so we decided to give something back to the community and we hope that it makes a difference to those locked in poverty.
“It’s a real privilege opening the doors to our 100th UK location here in Greenwich. It’s been a huge team effort from start to finish and we’d like to thank everyone involved for making it happen.”
In just over 10 years, Wren Kitchens has grown to be the UK’s largest retailer and has recently launched into America, reportedly opening the biggest kitchen showroom in the U.S.
