Barkers Home in Northallerton maked its 25th anniversary by welcoming a DeLorean sports car to its store in Yafforth Road, Northallerton, last weekend.

The car, which starred in Back to the Future starring Michael J, Fox, proved a hit with customers when it was parked inside the store. Its appearance marked the start of nine days of celebrations, which will end on Sunday 24th March and includes live music and promotional offers.

Ian Barker, director of Barkers Home, says: “Our customers have really enjoyed the celebrations and the chance to be photographed with a DeLorean sports car proved a big hit with everyone. We have extremely loyal customers and we wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary in style with a week of fun events.”

Barkers Home was purpose built on the edge of Northallerton in 1994. Originally called Barkers Furniture Store, it changed its name to Barkers Home following a multi-million-pound expansion in 2016. The home store is now one of the largest in the north of England.

The Barker family also owns the flagship Barkers department store on Northallerton high street.
