AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – Home décor shoppers have a new option in Amherst: At Home, which brands itself as The Home Décor Superstore, is opening at 3151 Sheridan Drive next to Whole Foods.

The store’s grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, July 2. It had a soft open last week.

“At Home is a unique home décor concept that offers the biggest in-store selection of home décor styles at an incredible value,” the company said in a press release. “At Home sells up to 45,000 home décor items for every room, every style and every budget — from furniture, rugs, wall art and housewares to tabletop, patio and holiday décor — in stores averaging just over 100,000 square feet.”

The opening of the store adds competition and variety for home shoppers in Amherst. At Home is approximately half a mile from HomeGoods on Sheridan and Niagara Falls Boulevard. Homesense is expected to open by the end of the year about a mile down Niagara Falls Boulevard.

The Amherst store is At Home’s 250th location and its first in Buffalo. The closest At Home stores were in Erie, Pa. and Syracuse.
