This article reports that Housing Units is to invest almost £ 2m refurbishing its Manchester store and introducing several concessions as it undergoes a major overhaul of the way it displays products. The design of the building is yet to be finalized and Nick Fox, director, hopes to have it open towards the end of the year. Parking will also be improved with the construction of a footbridge over the railway line which divides the store and the distribution center. This will allow staff to park at the center rather than the store.
