United heads north-east
United Carpets and Beds has opened its first store in the north-east of England, its 60th in total.
The chain has opened in Stockton and the 12,000sqft store will also be used as a training centre.
‘Opening a store in the north is a strategic decision. Creating a destination store in Stockton will allow us to showcase our extensive product portfolio both in flooring and beds, whilst also providing a base to train staff and be the first step in extending the United Carpets and Beds brand further north,’ says Paul Newton, United operations director.
‘Customers are at the heart of all we do at United Carpets and Beds, and with our popular online offering, there has been a lot of demand to bring our physical stores to the northeast of England. Many customers like to feel the luxury and comfort of our products before they purchase and take advantage of our free measuring and estimating service.’
The majority of United’s branches are in the Midlands and north-west.
