A Sheffield carpet and bed retailer is celebrating success having been awarded a national network award.
Lisa Beaumont, owner of the United Carpets and Beds store on Queens Road, won Franchise Bed Store of the Year at the United Carpets and Beds annual network conference in Marbella this spring.
The conference, which brings together the national brand’s 60 stores, head office staff and suppliers, allows the network to learn business updates, meet new colleagues and learn about upcoming interiors trends and products.
Lisa, who has owned the store since January 2007, said: “We’re very proud to have won Franchise Bed Store of the Year at this year’s United Carpets and Beds conference. Our extensive bed department has something for everyone including beds with storage options, children’s beds and sofa beds – customers can also view our full range in-store via our digital catalogue.
The Franchise Bed Store of the Year accolade was one of four awards announced at the retailer event, with other store owners and managers picking up Franchisee of the Year, Corporate Bed Store of the Year and Corporate Store of the Year.
“The annual conference is a great time to catch up with the rest of the network; although there are 60 stores, there is a real family atmosphere in celebrating each other’s successes,” added Lisa.
The Queens Road retailer specialises in flooring options including carpet, laminate, vinyl, LVT (luxury vinyl tiles) and beds and mattresses, offering brands such as Silentnight, Sealy and Rest Assured.
Will Hickman, marketing manager for United Carpets and Beds which is headquartered in Rotherham, said: “Lisa and her team are known for their high customer service level and their efforts with their bed department in the last year, in particularly competitive climates, deserve to be rewarded.
“We know our network of franchise and corporate stores works incredibly hard so we’re delighted to reward them at the annual conference.”
United Carpets Group plc is the UK’s largest franchised carpet and bed retailer with 60 stores across England and Wales. The business, which sells online and via the high street, was launched in 1997 and was family owned until 2005.
