A CITY furniture store got a chance to shine when it hosted a film shoot for a new television commercial.

Harveys The Furniture Store, based in Snowdon Drive, Winterhill, featured in a new commercial that will be shown over the August Bank Holiday.

It was fronted by comedy duo Katy Wix and Anna Crilly who have starred in Not Going Out and Lead Balloon respectively.

They were joined by a cast of over 75 extras and the set included funfair rides, ice cream vans and carnival professionals.

The Milton Keynes store was chosen to play host for the advert as it is Harveys’ first concept store in the UK.

Mike Perry, regional manager for Harveys Furniture, said: “Since opening, the store has been really well received by returning as well as new customers who love the new shopping experience.

“The day of the shoot was absolutely brilliant fun, everyone got involved from customers walking in off of street, members of the store team and even my kids played a part. I can’t wait to see the end result when the ad airs during August Bank Holiday.”

The store has famously sponsored Coronation Street since 2007 and adverts are shown before the show meaning increased exposure for staff and the store.
