MILFORD, CT — There is a prominent new addition to the Boston Post Road. Wren Kitchens, which is a UK kitchen retailer, has opened its first showroom in America and it’s located at 1522-24 Boston Post Road.
The 31,000 square-foot building on Route 1 is now “the biggest kitchen showroom in the USA,” company officials said. Wren Kitchens plans to open five more showrooms in the Northeast.
Company officials said in a news release that “Alongside the whopping 100 kitchen displays, the showroom boasts two virtual reality studios where customers can put on VR goggles and walk around their new kitchen in 3D virtual reality, and there’s also an interactive faucet lab where customers can test working faucets with hot, filtered and sparkling water.”
“Plus, there’s three plush interior design suites where interior designers and architects can book the space for clients as well as 20 open plan design desks where customers can work with a designer and view the ongoing creation of their dream kitchen.”
Milford Mayor Ben Blake, Lt. Governor, Susan Bysiewicz, and Commissioner of Connecticut State, David Lehman, cut the ribbon and enjoyed a tour of the showroom recently.
“We’re happy to welcome Wren Kitchens to Milford and excited that the Wren team chose our fantastic city with a big heart as its first US location,” Blake said.
The kitchen retailer also donated $1,000 dollars to the Mayor’s charity of choice, Milford Food2Kids, which ensures children in the local community aren’t left hungry during the pandemic.
The new showroom has created 25 jobs in the local area, from managers to kitchen designers and surveyors.
Milford Showroom Manager, David DeCicco, said in a statement: “A huge amount of hard work and effort has gone into developing our 100th and first USA showroom, and we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved on both sides of the Atlantic that has made this happen. It’s a proud moment for our team and for the whole company, as we celebrate this milestone and pave the way to a successful future for Wren in the US!”
