Orca Deco, a furniture and deco retail company, has opened one of the largest showrooms dedicated to office furniture on the Spintex road  in Accra.
The showroom, which is dedicated to the sale of office furniture, is expected to serve the company’s growing customer base across the country.
The Marketing Manager for Orca Deco, Mrs Emma Louise de Ricquebourg, in an interview with the GRAPHIC BUSINESS after a ceremony to officially  open the showroom last Thursday, noted that “opening a showroom this big and this beautiful, shows how much Ghana as a country and Accra as a city have developed in the past 15 years.”

With the size of the showroom and range of furniture available for sale, the marketing manager said the company would be able to cater for all segments of their targeted customers in the country.
She said Orca Deco offered full business solution in office furniture items ranging from home offices and work stations to executive offices, boardrooms and even waiting area furniture items.
 “Whether you are creating a home office, or you are a young entrepreneur looking for a small office to get your business started, or even a multinational company operating in this vibrant city of Accra, we can always meet your needs,” she noted.

Exchange rate
On the impact of the exchange rate on the company’s business, Mrs de Ricquebourg explained that despite a fluctuating exchanging rate, Orca Deco had stable prices across all of its retail shops in the country.
“We are aware of the fluctuation of the exchange rate in recent times; however, we have positioned ourselves well and have maintained a competitive price over a long period of time to meet the needs of our customers,” she stressed.
According to her, although Orca was founded as a shop that sold household goods, the company was determined to expand based on the demands of their customers.
“Early in our story, we noticed a strong demand for office furniture and made it our mission to provide our customers with quality yet affordable office furniture as we all see today,” Mrs de Ricquebourg said. 
She added that with the different collections in office solutions, the company could guarantee that one would always find something to suit their taste and budget when shopping at Orca Office Furniture.
