‘Ev­ery­body still needs beds’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

A BUSI­NESS­MEN has bucked the trend by open­ing a new en­ter­prise while other busi­nesses are clos­ing or lay­ing off work­ers. Dave Bracewell has cre­ated Mr B’s Beds in Hythe Road, Ash­ford. The new store pro­vides one new post and uses two staff from Mr Bracewell’s other ven­ture, The Fur­ni­ture Store. He said: “Ev­ery­body still needs beds, even in this eco­nomic cli­mate, and we are of­fer­ing rea­son­ably priced ones. “There is a risk in open­ing a busi­ness at any time but I am sure we will suc­ceed.” The busi­ness was opened on Satur­day without any spe­cial events to her­ald it. Mr Bracewell said: “I felt at a time like this it was not right to have a flam­boy­ant open­ing with bells and whis­tles.” Mr Bracewell is a part­ner in The Fur­ni­ture Store, also in Hythe Road, which has been trad­ing since 1983.
