Local furniture store prepares for major expansion

A local furniture store is preparing for a major expansion.

Now that the Bathurst Legion has moved out of its Peter Ave. building, Leon's has begun plans to renovate the location to offer products it didn't have enough room for at its first two stores.

Owner Paul Godin tells the Northern Light its current location on St. Peter Ave, as well as its liquidation store in East Bathurst will remain open and that a La-Z-Boy and Ashley Furniture Gallery, along with other products will be found in the former Legion building.

It's not yet known how long the renovations will take, however Godin hopes the new location will be ready by the fall.
