If the first week has been any indication, business is going to be good for City Furniture Ltd.'s 22nd location in West Kelowna.

The new furniture store opened last Friday in the former Extra Foods building, near the intersection of Highway 97 and Gosset Road.

"We are overwhelmed…the response has been really good," said Ray Kandola, owner of City Furniture in West Kelowna.

The 40,000-square-foot display area is the largest one-floor operation in City Furniture's chain.

Previously, City Furniture had a location on Ross Road for about 13 years; however, Kandola said that store wasn't as easily accessible.

"We were looking for a bigger, better location."

Kandola's nephew, Das Kandola, will be in charge of managing the new store.

"We're going to make sure we do our very best to support the community."
