We've heard for quite a while now that the Regal House Outlet was moving from its location on Belleville Avenue in New Bedford.

The radio spots indicated only that they were moving to a "bigger and better location," but no mention of where. Their Facebook page only said they were moving to Fairhaven.

But today, while walking across the parking lot of the Ocean State Job Lot during a quick run to the bank, the brand new sign caught my eye.

Since Job Lot moved into the former site of Shaw's Supermarket in August of 2017, we've all been wondering what would happen with all the extra space that Job Lot had blocked off. Now we know: it's the new home of the Regal House Outlet!

On Christmas Eve, there was a Regal House truck in the lot and workers inside arranging the furniture displays. It appears the store is almost fully stocked and ready to open soon and offer some post-holiday deals.

According to the Facebook page, the new location will officially open in January.

By the way, it is only the Regal House Outlet that is moving. The original Regal House Furniture will remain where it always has been on Church Street in New Bedford.
