While buying furniture and home decor online is certainly convenient, sometimes you just want to go to a physical store to check out the products in person.
And soon, Wayfair fans will be able to do just that.
The popular online retailer, which sells furnishings and decor for almost every inch of the home, just announced that it’s opening its first full-service store later this year.
According to a press release from the company, the new store will open early this fall at the Natick Mall in Natick, Massachusetts.
So what can customers expect with the company’s first brick-and-mortar location? One of its perks is more personal service. There will be home-design experts on hand for free consultations, advice and recommendations on whatever project or room you're working on — whether it be your kitchen, living room or even backyard.
Though there’s no official word on just how big the store will be or what exactly will be in it, we do know it’ll be a curated selection of what’s online — after all, there are more than 14 million items for sale on the website (it’s also having an up to 70 percent off Tax Refund Event!).
At the store, you’ll be able to order items from the website and have them shipped to your residence, but there will also be some things available for purchase to take home right then and there.
Sad you don’t live near Natick? There might be another in-person opportunity coming your way. The company has operated a couple of pop-up shops in the past and teased four new shops set to open later this summer.
The pop-up shops will have smaller assortments of products like decorative accents and seasonal pieces available for in-store purchase. No word yet, though, on which lucky cities will get them.
