On 5 February Andersens officially launched its brand new flagship store in the North Lakes Prime West Homemaker Complex, 26km north of Brisbane.

Taking inspiration from Australia’s best home retail stores, Andersens North Lakes Franchisees, Raymond and Diane Bartel, have been working on this project for over five years.

“Diane and I are absolutely delighted to officially open Andersens North Lakes and have big aspirations for what we are going to achieve in the coming year. Five years in the making, we were waiting for the perfect site and the North Lakes Prime West Homemaker Complex is better than anything we could have hoped for,” said Mr Bartel.

“We have done indepth research into leading retail stores across the country, both within flooring and more broadly across the homemaker sector, to ensure we can maximise the instore experience for our valued customers.

“With the help of our fantastic team of designers and builders, we really have created something special – an open plan 100m² layout with alcoves for each product category, inspiring customers to relax and take their time when browsing through samples. This environment ensures they can make the right decision on such an important aspect of the look, feel and functionality of their home.”

Raymond and Diane have been part of the Andersens group for over a decade, located in Rothwell prior to making the move to North Lakes in November 2015. The team at Andersens North Lakes has a combined experience in floorcoverings of over 65 years, positioning the store as the market leader in the local area.
