Planning has been granted to construct a new 3,200 square foot furniture showroom and building has just recently begun for well-known Furniture Supplier, PJ Kenny, in Ballydangan on the main Ballinasloe / Athlone R446 road. This is an exciting development and investment in the local, rural area where alongside their traditional offering they will also be stockists of their own new brand, West & Moore, which will consist of a select range of mattresses, pillows, towels etc. They hope to open the new premises later this year or in early January 2021.
PJ Kenny’s Furniture store, located in Moore South, Ballydangan, Ballinasloe / Athlone, Co. Roscommon, is an independent, family run business established in 2004. Since then they have been providing customers with quality mattresses, divans, bed frames, furniture suites etc. They operate a delivery service which is free within a thirty-kilometer radius of the store. Their founding aim is to promote and supply the best of Irish manufactured products where possible. They proudly supply brand names such as Respa, Briody, Odearest and many more.
Andrew, son of PJ and Frances has been working alongside his father since he was thirteen years old. He was born in Portiuncula Hospital, attended Athlone Community College and the NUI in Galway for a period of time. He is currently the Regional Sales Manager for The West & Midlands and is nearing twenty years in this field. He insists “Business, Sales & Marketing, Advertising etc. is in my blood and I’ve always had a keen interest in ‘doing business’ since I was a kid.” He got all of his experience from working in the furniture store throughout his teenage years. PJ, his father, is owner of the furniture store in Ballydangan, having established the business 17 years ago.
Within the last two years, Andrew has become a partner in the company and is looking ahead to progressing the business forward. The continuation of ‘Quality Products at Value Prices’, which has always been PJ’s motto down through the years, will continue. The only differences will be a bright, new, spacious showroom and exciting new product lines. The business will be called “Kennys Home Furniture”.
I believe our new location in Ballydangan right between the two principle towns of Ballinasloe and Athlone is ideal. A short hop from both towns and surrounding areas with free, dedicated parking. A destination furniture store offering the best of Irish made mattresses, beds and furniture combined with value and genuine customer service” stated Andrew. Keep an eye out and listen for further information regarding this exciting new venture. PJ Kenny Beds and Furniture still welcomes you and looks forward to seeing you in the new premises in the very near future. Their shop is open from Monday to Saturday 10am-7pm.
