We officially celebrate our Diamond Anniversary
We turned 60 this year and like most of us who are getting older, we have never been so busy! We’ve been sorting out all the new branding bits and pieces, winning awards and seeing our newly designed advertising bring in lots of you lovely people to our Worthing and Storrington stores which has been great. But we promised ourselves a party for the team and some special guests and last week we finally got round to holding it!
Of course it was held in our original Worthing store – where we have traded continuously for the past 60 years. It’s the place where original founder, Cyril Wall and his 2 brothers, saw a business opportunity to sell fitted carpets in the late 1950’s when many homes were first having central heating fitted and yet still had draughty floorboards. They purchased a single shop in Tarring Road and we are still based here today.
We’ve had a brilliant 60th year so far, we have completely rebranded and it’s been really well received, plus we won the 2017 Adur & Worthing Business Award for Best Small Business and were also Highly Commended in the Customer Service category too. We have also raised thousands of pounds for Guild Care, which is a charity we have supported for nearly as long as we’ve been open – Cyril Wall started as a volunteer driver for the original hospital charity back in the early 60’s and we’ve been helping out ever since.
As you can see from the picture, we had a great time and wanted to thank our friends and families for supporting us, it was lovely to see everyone.
Here’s to many more years to come!
