South East independent retailer Collingwood Batchellor is among the first retailers to offer new products from Willis & Gambier, following the brand's relaunch after it was acquired by Birlea last year.

The retailer's assistant operations manager, Annabelle Lamb, comments: “We have found that during lockdown many of customers spent more time in their homes and wanted ideas and inspiration for revamping their interiors and buying furniture.

“We worked hard to ensure we were supplying online orders as well as making sure our stores were ready as soon as we were safely allowed to open in June, as well as looking at fresh new ideas and products.

"We're delighted to be showing the latest new designs from Willis & Gambier in our stores. We continually look at the best new products available on that market that we think our customers will like, so that we’re bringing the very best selection to our shoppers.”

Collingwood Batchellor, founded in 1968, operates through eight stores across Surrey, West Sussex and Kent.
