The article presents information about Harveys Furnishing Group PLC, which is to introduce classic furniture and freestanding bedroom furniture sections into its stores to enliven shoppers' experience of furniture retail. The move marks the end of Neil Allan's business restructuring following his appointment as managing director in March last year, and the start of his strategy to make Harveys stores markedly different from its competitors. Stores will also see more interactive children's sections; a removal of plastic footguards on recliners and sillier ticketing designed to make the experience more fun for the shopper.
