Carpetright plans to open a further five concessions in Furniture Village stores before Christmas.

Following the success of the first concession, which launched in Guildford in May, the brand is now preparing to launch in the Exeter, Gateshead, Wednesbury, Telford and Leeds stores, with further roll-out planned for 2020.

The five new concessions will be home to carpets and hard flooring, and Carpetright’s dedicated store team will be on hand to provide advice and a free measuring and estimating service, while also being able to arrange a third-party fitting service.

Furniture Village chief executive Peter Harrison says: “As one of the UK’s largest furniture and beds retailers we are delighted to be partnering with Carpetright whose formidable choice of good-value floorcoverings provides a perfect enhancement to our overall home furnishings offer.”

Carpetright CEO Wilf Walsh adds: “I’m really pleased with the results of our first concession. Carpetright and Furniture Village are a great fit and I’m sure these next five locations will prove equally successful.”
