Property Agency

Furnishings firm makes itself at home in new Peterborough premises

An independent home furnishings retailer has relocated to new premises in Peterborough in a move which saw the local agency of Eddisons incorporating Barker Storey Matthews  act on behalf of the landlord in the letting of the property.

At 1,428 sq ft (132.66 sq m), 31 Alfric Square sees Homesoft Ltd (also known locally as Upholstery Centre) now trading from larger premises than its previous unit on Oundle Road’s trading district, where it had been located for the past 25 out of the 30 years since it was established in 1990.

In seeking new premises, the upholstery, fabric, curtains, blinds and flooring retailer had wanted larger premises to meet the needs of its domestic and contract customer base who are, mostly, within a 15 mile radius of Peterborough.

Peter Beckerton, one of the firm’s co-directors, explained, “We had been looking for a larger unit for about 12 months before securing 31 Alfric Square for use as our main showroom premises and office base.

“As a local independent business who has been trading for so many years and, in having such an established and loyal customer base – in trade circles, in particular – our property requirements were quite exacting when it came to size and location.

“We are currently stocking our new showroom and are looking forward to opening for business soon.”

The Peterborough office of Eddisons incorporating Barker Storey Matthews acted as sole agent in letting 31 Alfric Square.
