Type: Shop


About the business:
Established in 1987, we are Leyland’s number one supplier of carpets, vinyls and Karndean design flooring. We have in stock over 100 rolls, which means no waiting times for fitted carpets. Prices are low all year round and unbeatable in the area.

Leyland connection:
My father (Bill) started the business in 1987 from a small shop in Towngate. He quickly outgrew this small shop and occupied the 2 shops either side, becoming 5 shops knocked into 1! In 2005 we moved to Kings Court where we have a large showroom and warehouse, housing over 100 rolls of carpet.
All the family went to school in Leyland, have lived in Leyland and have great ties with the people here.

We sell/stock:
We stock carpets from the largest manufacturers in the UK and Europe, because we buy in bulk we can offer our customers much lower prices than competitors can. These are all “Branded” carpets and we guarantee you won’t find cheaper carpets elsewhere.

We stock 20 rolls of 5* Armstrong Rhinofloor Vinyl, normally retailing at £26yd and due to the amount we buy we do this at £16.99yd fitted!

We are also a Karndean “Gold Retailer” listed on their website as areas preferred of Karndean Design Flooring. This is due to the volume of Karndean we supply and install, the quality of our showroom, the standards of our work, the excellent aftercare service and of course our keen prices.

Most proud of:
That the business has been in Leyland for 25 years with very little advertising, meaning that most of our business is repeat or word of mouth advertising – this best kind there is!

We originally set up shop at 145 Towngate, on the original site of the Spurrier Works – Leyland Trucks.
It seems that we can’t escape Leyland Trucks, as our new site is the old Leyland Trucks training site and we always have people telling us how they “used to work here”. It’s great to have some (albeit small) connection with the greatest name in the history of Leyland.

Other favourite shop:
I like Chicken BBQ for the quality of their bacon barms!!

Celebrity connection:
We have done lots of contracts for famous people, notably England Rugby Stars, Actors, Premier League Footballers, World Famous Comedians, OBE’s and Cricketers… Can’t disclose their names though (Data Protection and all that!)

One wish:
That people don’t pay too much attention to the doom mongers regarding the economy. The greatest way to kick-start the economy is to safeguard jobs and manufacturing in this country and to spend and buy British and Local. Britain, in particular Leyland, has a great manufacturing history; it would be a shame if a few bankers ruined it. My wish is Shop Local and Buy British.

Just call in and visit us – we have free parking on site and would love to show you our unbeatable offers. We are the longest established flooring firm in the area, giving you peace of mind. Here’s to the next 25 years!
