The Cutter’s Edge has been creating beautiful custom wood furniture for more than 30 years. This week, they celebrated their fourth store on Howland Drive in Huntsville with a grand opening celebration.
“We chose Huntsville as a progressive town and we look forward to serving the community here,” company founder Hubert Lawrence told the customers and staff who assembled for the official ribbon cutting. “Huntsville was our first choice. It’s a perfect fit for us and we hope it’s great for Huntsville.”
Mayor Scott Aitchison, who did the ribbon-cutting honours, added, “We are really excited to have you here. This is a magnificent space you’ve put together and it’s one more great thing for people to come to Huntsville for. The fact that you chose Huntsville as your Muskoka location speaks volumes to how vital it is and how much Huntsville is growing. We are thrilled to have you. Welcome and we wish you all great success here.”
Customers were treated to live music by Sean Cotton, a cookie and milk bar, and discounts throughout the showroom.
“More than 450 people came through the door to enjoy our festivities,” said Lindsay Cowan, Muskoka Showroom Manager. “There were lots of happy faces and lots of lovely people to talk to. We are very happy with how the event turned out.”
The Cutter’s Edge Muskoka showroom, which had a soft opening last fall, provides a more southerly location for the company’s fans and loyal customers—its other locations are the flagship in Burk’s Falls, a smaller location in the mall in North Bay, and a roughly 13,000 square foot showroom in Verner.
“So far we have been received nicely by the community, and I think one of the best compliments that we’ve had so far is hearing ‘Huntsville needed something like this’,” said Cowan.
The Cutter’s Edge has become known for its custom wood furniture which, unlike what you’ll find in a box store showroom, can be made to fit your specifications for size, wood species, texture, and stain. “We can really customize to what a customer needs versus what we’re showing on the sales floor,” said Cowan. “It’s not what you see is what you get…you can really make it your own.”
All of the furniture, along with custom kitchens, is manufactured in Burk’s Falls, with the company calling in the help of local builders as needed to meet demand.
In addition to furniture, the Muskoka showroom also has home décor pieces, rugs, and women’s fashion.
“Come on by and introduce yourselves,” said Cowan. “We love meeting new people and welcoming them into our family.”
