Dacombes of Wimborne to open new destination store

ERT award-winning electrical retailer Dacombes of Wimborne is moving to a new destination store in the local area.

The 4,500 sq ft shop will be located on Leigh Road, in a building which was formerly a branch of furniture specialist Brights of Nettlebed.

The move has saved the building, which is on two floors, from demolition.

The ground floor will be laid out to look like key areas of the home and there will be fitted kitchens, a TV and AV lounge and a selection of white goods.

Dacombes, which has been based in and around West Street, The Cornmarket and The Square in Wimborne, Dorset for almost 100 years, is an official stockist of Neff, Samsung, Bosch, Panasonic, Liebherr and Dyson. All of these appliances will be laid out in their own key areas of the store, while the upper floor will be used for storage and offices.

The larger store means that Dacombes will now be able to offer a wider range of home appliances, white goods, AV, TVs and home electronics.

For the first time ever, it will also be offering a bespoke fitted kitchen service. The kitchen area, located on the ground floor, will showcase kitchens in association with local business MK Interiors.

Said Dacombes managing director, Matt Renaut: “When we heard that Brights of Nettlebed were closing their Wimborne store, we knew it would be an ideal location for us and enable us to go ahead with our expansion plans.

“Retail is changing, and, via customer feedback, we realised the need to create a destination shop and to have specialist products and advisors on hand to create bespoke kitchens too.

“We had run out of space in West Street and in the Cornmarket and the new building has the added advantage of a car park to the rear. The premises are spacious which means we can create several different areas for our products and our customers will have the benefit of more selection, thus creating an improved customer experience and level of service.

“Myself, my co-directors and our team of 15 skilled staff, very much look forward to welcoming everyone to the brand new Dacombes of Wimborne store in Leigh Road soon.”
