Wright at Home, a locally owned interior design business specializing in quality home furnishings, is celebrating the opening of its new location in Effingham. The new store is located at 507 East Fayette Ave. in the old Boos Block Showroom. Wright’s Furniture & Flooring president, John Wright, said the new location is almost double the size of their previous location on Hoffman Drive.

“We’re very excited about the new location,” said Wright. “Our staff is dedicated to helping people with their residential and commercial decorating needs, and with this additional space, we’ll be able to offer them more options and displays. This historic industrial building has also been beautifully renovated, so I think people will enjoy seeing how we’ve transformed it.”

Wright said the new location will offer window treatments, custom showers, backsplashes, flooring and design consultations. The new space will also allow for Wright at Home to showcase the growing commercial design side of their business.

The Effingham Chamber of Commerce is holding a Business After Hours and Ribbon Cutting ceremony celebrating the new Wright at Home store on Thursday, May 23 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The ribbon cutting will be held at 5:30.

Wright at Home will have customer Grand Opening Events on May 28 through June 1. For each of the five days, people can come in to register for daily prize giveaways that include lamps, a table set, window treatments, flooring or a TV. Everyone who registers will also receive a $100 Wright's Gift Card, good on purchases of $999 or more before tax.

Wright at Home will also hold a Grand Opening Event on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be grilling burgers and brats from McMahon’s Meats from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Everyone who attends can also register to win the grand prize giveaway, a 65 inch 4K Smart TV from Al’s Electronics.
