Car­petright plan is wel­comed by coun­cil

Chair­man says busi­ness will ‘con­trib­ute to va­ri­ety’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Chris Brown, chair­man of the town coun­cil, said it would be a good move as there would be a lot of de­mand for their goods, given the amount of new houses and con­ver­sions built in the area.

He said: “Ger­rards Cross Town Coun­cil is pleased to wel­come Car­petright to their new shop in Pack­horse Road. With the in­creas­ing num­ber of res­i­dents in Ger­rards Cross, we are sure they will find plenty of busi­ness and we wish suc­cess.

“Their busi­ness will con­trib­ute to the va­ri­ety of shops in the town cen­tre, which we are pleased to see.”

A spokesman for Cit­i­gate, Car­petright’s Fi­nan­cial PR agency, con­firmed the move on Tues­day March 29, say­ing: “Car­petright are happy to con­firm that they are open­ing in Ger­rards Cross, Pack­horse Road.”

Car­petright is set to move into the same build­ing that was pre­vi­ously oc­cu­pied by pop­u­lar home­ware shop Cargo, fol­low­ing its clo­sure ear­lier this year.

On Fri­day March 11, the car­pet com­pany ap­plied to South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil for plans to build


ev­ery two il­lu­mi­nated fas­cia signs read­ing ‘Car­petright’ at the Pack­horse Road lo­ca­tion.

The pro­posal read: “One in­ter­nally il­lu­mi­nated fas­cia sign and one in­ter­nally il­lu­mi­nated dou­ble sided pro­jec­tion sign.”

The plans fu­elled spec­u­la­tion at the time of an im­mi­nent move to Ger­rards Cross.

Car­petright re­gional man­ager Leon Sol­lesse said: “It’s fan­tas­tic to be open­ing a new Car­petright high street store in the heart of Ger­rards Cross.

“It’s an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion and I’m look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing lo­cal peo­ple to the store and shar­ing our ex­per­tise to help them trans­form their homes with new floor­ing for many years to come.”

Car­petright cur­rently has around 700 stores and 438 across the UK, in­clud­ing in Ayles­bury, Slough, Maiden­head and two in High Wy­combe.
