French kitchen furniture manufacturer Mobalpa is set to celebrate the opening of its flagship store in Warrington, on June 23-24.
The 3,300sq ft showroom forms part of an expansion programme and will provide a blueprint for a series of UK concept stores. These will be either retail partnerships or Mobalpa-owned and will join its network of 500 showrooms across 38 countries worldwide, serving more than one million customers.
To celebrate the launch of its flagship store, Mobalpa has organised a number of events to run across the weekend. These include the head chef from Le Bistrot Pierre to host a French cookery demonstration on June 23, followed by a culinary presentation from a Neff appliances chef on June 24.
In addition, visitors will be able to enter a free draw, with the top prize being a weekend for two in Paris on a Bateaux Mouche excursion, as well as a day at the Alain Ducasse cooking school.
In addition, Mobalpa will also be offering free installation on any kitchen purchased from its Warrington showroom from June 23-July 21, 2012.
Mobalpa operates from three production facilities in France, employs more than 1,000 people, and manufactures over 50,000 kitchens each year.
