I can’t believe that we have just received our invitation to the AIS bed, sofa bed and bedroom furniture show on 15 September 2015. It only seems like yesterday that we were up there in April.
This could be a very timely show for us as we are hoping to have finalised a deal on a new store in Sussex by the beginning of September. If the deal goes ahead, we will have a showroom that will enable us to display between 50 and 60 of our best selling beds and mattresses. Combine that with a range of Relyon and Breasley roll pack mattresses that can be delivered within 24 hours and we have a very serious offer.
It’s a store that we have looked at several times over the years that was previously owned by Courts. It’s certainly got beds and furniture pedigree. We’ll update you as and when we have more information.
The likes of Myers, Sealy, Silentnight, Slumberland and Staples will be attending, with offers for the Winter Sale. This show is generally about upcoming promotions, rather than launching new product. That said, one or two suppliers might give us a preview of new ranges that they will be showing at the Telford Bed Show later in the month.
In the meantime, let’s hope we can complete the deal on the new store and enjoy the benefits of some big sale offers on Hypnos beds and mattresses amongst others at the show.
