Pilgrim Furniture Will Stay In Manchester Plaza – Hartford Courant

As big-box retailer At Home prepares to open a store in the Plaza at Burr Corners, Pilgrim Furniture & Mattress City will move to a smaller space in the same plaza.

“Our new space will be a high-end renovation specifically designed to showcase our furniture,” Pilgrim President Mike Albert said Tuesday.

The renovated Pilgrim store is to open in the spring in the space next to Planet Fitness, Albert said. Texas-based At Home recently submitted plans to open its first Connecticut store in the anchor space Pilgrim now occupies. The company has stores in 33 states, including Rhode Island and Massachusetts, according to its website (http://bit.ly/2fW6bU4).

At Home’s building application says light exterior work will be done, including painting and facade changes, along with interior conversion. The company does not need planning and zoning commission approval to move forward, planning and economic development Director Gary Anderson said.
