CORNWALL, Ontario – Poirier Furniture celebrated its grand re-opening at its new location at 1400 Vincent Massey Dr. on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018.
Poirier Furniture’s original location on Montreal Rd. was destroyed by fire in late July.
Pierre Jette of Poirier’s said that their renewal would not have been possible without the support of the community and the hard work of their own employees.
On Saturday, Poirier’s invited the community to their new store. There was food, coffee, special deals, giveaways and prizes, which included a full-room set by Ashley Home Furniture.
“It is really more of a celebration with customers and family and friends,” said Jette. “We love the new space and there has been so much support.”
Jette explained that the support that Poirier’s received from the community was amazing and that there were many that deserved thanks. He said particularly, Poirier’s received great support from the business community including Rob St.Germain of Excerta Network Services, Chad Latreille of Latreille Electric, Tom Hughes, and Jack Haines.
“There was overwhelming support from the community, customers and business community, really there are too many to name,” said Jette. “It really gave us the drive to do this.”
