Small in­de­pen­dent car­pet re­tail­ers of­fer choice, qual­ity and ser­vice

Country Living (UK) - - Cl Promotion -

Bri­tain has long been a na­tion of shop­keep­ers – nearly a mil­lion shops filled bustling Vic­to­rian high streets. For many large re­tail­ers, 2018 is prov­ing to be a year to for­get – but spe­cial­ists and ar­ti­sans are thriv­ing. Lo­cal in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers are of­ten the lifeblood of com­mu­ni­ties and, of course, they are all dif­fer­ent.

This ap­plies to in­de­pen­dent car­pet shops, too. The Car­pet Foun­da­tion has 450 in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers na­tion­wide, sell­ing qual­ity car­pets to suit all bud­gets. Most are small or fam­ily owned – many have been in operation for gen­er­a­tions, of­fer­ing good old-fash­ioned per­sonal ser­vice from peo­ple who are gen­uinely knowl­edge­able.

All Car­pet Foun­da­tion re­tail­ers op­er­ate un­der a Con­sumer Code of Prac­tice, ap­proved by the Char­tered Trad­ing Stan­dards In­sti­tute, which guar­an­tees a high level of ser­vice. They are the only car­pet re­tail­ers in Bri­tain al­lowed to fol­low this Code of Prac­tice and are mon­i­tored to en­sure com­pli­ance.
