Pompanoosuc Mills moves local showroom to Post Road West

Pompanoosuc Mills has finished renovations to its new showroom at 222 Post Road West, completing its relocation from across town, the retailer of hand-crafted Vermont furniture reports.
The store had been at 1100 Post Road East in the Post Plaza for a decade, manager David Noseworthy said. The store moved into the new space in November, but renovations were completed last week with installation of a new sign, he said.
The new, 4,000-square-foot store is about half the size of the previous location but puts Pompanoosuc Mills in a shopping center with other home-design stores, including Bel Mondo, Artee Fabrics, J. Pocker frames and prints and Capel Rugs.
The furniture store's new location previously was occupied by Capel Rugs, which moved to second-floor space in the same building.
Noseworthy said Pompanoosuc's previous location at Post Road East and Morningside Drive, in the same plaza as the Barnes & Noble book store, was challenging because of the configuration of its parking lot. A major plus of the new location, he said, is that the mix of tenants make it a home-design destination.
The retailer has been in Westport for 25 years. It's first local store was on Post Road downtown, opposite the old Post Office.
