In 1960 my Grandparents decided to open their own furniture business, they sold their family home and took out a mortgage on a shop and flat in a newly built parade in Ash Vale. The parade of shops was still in its final stages of building and on the day that the family moved in there was no shop window and to get to the door you had to balance on a plank over a muddy building site. The furniture and carpet shop once opened, sold goods from mainly British suppliers, a prominent feature in the store was a giant union jack flag made from carpet.
In the December of 1993 we opened the store we are currently in, it was a big jump from 5,000 to 20,000sqft and moved us from the parade where we first started into a purpose built showroom on the other side of the village.
We are proud to say that our family values have remained the same over the years that we have been in Ash Vale and that we intend to be here for many years to come.
