Car­pet busi­ness is a fam­ily af­fair

Rochdale Observer - - CHILD SEX ABUSE INQUIRY -

A CAR­PET re­tailer is keep­ing it in the fam­ily as the owner brings her daugh­ter on board to join the team.

Marie Bakelow has been ap­pointed as sales ad­vi­sor at United Car­pets & Beds on Union Street, Rochdale – the busi­ness is owned by her mum Ja­nis Bakelow, and she hopes to fol­low in her foot­steps.

Ja­nis took over the fran­chise in October 2014 and is cel­e­brat­ing a suc­cess­ful three years at the helm.

She said: “Marie has pre­vi­ously helped out in the store and she’s such a nat­u­ral with cus­tomers that it was a no-brainer; I had to have her join the team of­fi­cially.

“Cus­tomers know they can trust her and she’s build­ing great re­la­tion­ships with them. A lot of our busi­ness is cur­rently from re­peat cus­tomers who have been pleased with our ser­vice.”

Marie added: “I’m re­ally proud to join mum and her team. The cus­tomers are lovely and it’s great to see them com­ing back again know­ing we’ve helped make their re­dec­o­rat­ing a lit­tle eas­ier.”

Ja­nis’ hus­band also owns the United Car­pets & Beds show­room in Chea­dle, Stock­port, so it truly is a fam­ily af­fair.
