STERLING Furniture Retail Warehouse Plan For Ex-Car Showroom

9 July, 2024 | Retail

PLANNERS are considering whether a former car showroom at Hillington can be turned into a major furniture store with cafe and garden centre.

Sterling Furniture Group have applied to use premises near the M8 on Hillington Road. The development would create 60 full and part-time jobs.

A statement included with their application explains: “Sterling Furniture has been looking to secure representation in the Renfrewshire area for a number of years.

“They have good representation across the wider Glasgow conurbation with stores at London Road, Glasgow and Tannochside, Lanarkshire but have a gap in representation as it relates to the west /Renfrewshire area.

“Their requirements are to occupy an existing building circa 50,000sq.ft. on a single level. There are few opportunities available for buildings of that size in appropriate locations for such a use.

“The former Peter Vardy showroom is now vacant and offers an appropriate opportunity for conversion to a retail warehouse given its previous use and design.

The building was originally constructed as a furniture manufacturing and retailing unit.

The proposals are being assessed by Renfrewshire Council planners.
