Leon’s Home Furnishings can trace its roots back to the first store in Welland, ON back in 1909 and the company opened up its first warehouse showroom in 1973, the first of its kind in Canada.
The company now has a mix of over 50 corporate and franchise outlets across Canada and its latest addition is a new store replacing an older outlet in St. John’s, NL.
The store just opened in the past week and we wanted to see what it looked like so we could take you on a Virtual Store Tour.
The space was formerly occupied by a Canadian Tire store, which itself moved to a bigger, newer location about a year ago.
While the grand opening will be held in June, the store is fully operation and it is spacious and bright. It is actually less crowded than other Leon’s stores that we have visited and that may change as the store brings in more inventory.
The store is clearly segmented by rooms of the home with a Bedroom / Mattress Gallery and large Appliances section supplemented by a range of living room and dining room furniture.
