Brick furniture store expands in Atlantic Canada


The Brick furniture store has opened new stores in three Atlantic Canadian cities this summer and expects to open a fourth later in the year.

The three new stores are in Charlottet­own, Saint John and Fredericto­n. The fourth new store is planned for St. Johns, N.L.

“The Brick’s expansion in Atlantic Canada is creating jobs during a challengin­g economic period in Canada,” said Dave Freeman, president of The Brick, in a press release. “I am incredibly pleased to celebrate our latest openings and to announce that we have plans for even further growth later this year and into 2021 as we continue serving communitie­s on the East Coast.”

The Brick, which is a Canadian furniture, mattresses, appliances and home electronic­s retailer, relocated its Charlottet­own store and opened in the Charlottet­own Mall on July 1. The two New Brunswick stores in Fredericto­n and Saint John have created about 50 jobs. The Saint John store opened on June 4, and the Fredericto­n location opened on July 16. Grand opening celebratio­ns at the new stores are planned throughout August.

The Brick’s parent company, the LFL Group, is also planning to open a distributi­on facility in Dartmouth, N.S.
