‘Everybody still needs beds’
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.
