After a rip roaring first year, Barker and Stonehouse’s thriving Hove store has become an ever-popular hotspot for interior shoppers and design enthusiasts.
The 1st April marks a year to the day since the Hove store’s doors first opened, welcoming in reams of excited crowds with the help of TV’s George Clarke. Introducing customers to a number of UK design premieres and offering guests a fantastic shopping experience, the store received over 2,000 visits in the opening weekend alone!
With the Spring Event in full swing, make the most of fantastic savings of up to 20% off fabulous furniture and homewares. Plus, to celebrate Hove’s first birthday the store gave away free ice creams on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st March – giving visitors even more reasons to visit!
The £1.5m investment in this South East store immediately created 25 jobs for the area and a further 25 jobs were secured in the newly built, state-of-the-art 54,000 sq ft warehouse in Crawley.
Providing an impressive 35,000 sq ft of retail space across two-floors, the store showcases the family-run firm’s carefully-curated selection of designer furniture ranges, including renowned brands such as the luxury reclaimer Timothy Oulton and the contemporary Cattelan Italia. Introducing visitors to a dazzling array of beautifully designed and made furniture and accessories, the Brighton and Hove area has embraced Barker and Stonehouse’s signature flair for superior design and interior eclecticism.
Barker and Stonehouse Managing Director, James Barker comments that the Hove store’s success has been overwhelming:
“Each of our stores has built up a hugely loyal following of customers, thanks to our excellent, knowledgeable staff and the finest in homewares, and we’re proud to say the Hove store has exceeded all our expectations.”
