FURNITURE chain Julian Foye wants to be part of the Hayle town centre regeneration scheme.

Construction is about to start at the site of a new showroom for the Cornish retailer, which acquired the former Daniels food store at Market Square in December last year.

"We can see that Hayle as an area is at last on the up so we want to be part of that," said marketing director John Atkison.

"Over the last couple of years we have done some exhibitions in Hayle and learned that a lot of people are very pleased with our range but they just had not heard of us. So we agreed to set up a new branch here."

Julian Foye started in Fowey in 1862 and remains a family business. It has large showrooms at Truro, St Austell and Wadebridge and a smaller shop at Fowey.

The new store will have a sales area of approximately 16,000 square feet. It is due to open by the summer and will employ about six staff.

A CORNISH furniture store has been given the approval for a new showroom in Hayle.

Work is about to start on the Julian Foye site at the former Daniels food store, Market Square, which it bought last December.

The showroom will have a 16,000sq ft sales area which will complement the existing showrooms at Truro, Wadebridge and St Austell. It will also introduce new ranges of furniture not previously shown in Cornwall.

Construction of the branch will be in the hands of Steve and Lionel McDonald, from Penryn, who recently extended the Truro premises. The architect is Paul Elms, of Pearn & Proctor, who has worked with the company on a number of projects.

The showroom is due to open in summer 2011 and Julian Foye has already advertised for staff. They will get to know the company while working at the Truro shop with Ian Dunn-Birch, who will manage the new branch.
