A RETAILER with a successful store in Keighley is on course for a record-breaking year.

Flooring Superstore has seen its turnover soar by 35 per cent in 2019-20 – to over £35 million – and the expectation is for a further increase.

During a tough few months generally for retailing, the company – which has an outlet at the Alston Retail Park – has enjoyed a boom in online demand for its products.

And six new stores have been opened this year.

The company employs more than 250 people nationally.

Chris Barber, Flooring Superstore chief retail officer, said: “2020 is on course to be the most profitable and successful year in our history.

“Despite the pandemic, we have pressed on with our strategic bricks and mortar store opening programme and even when the stores have been closed during lockdown, we had the e-commerce side of the business to fall back on – and this has never been busier.”
