Retailer eyes further expansion after latest opening
Independent furniture and bed retailer Kent Beds and Sofas has opened its fourth store.
The company, founded in Ramsgate in 2011, has opened in Canterbury, joining branches in Folkestone (pictured) and Sittingbourne.
Founder Jamie Knight says he’s keen to add more stores.
‘I want to grow the company and I would like to have shops all over Kent so am eyeing up Ashford, Maidstone, Medway. The difficulty is finding a suitable location. You need a shop that is big enough, the right location and the right price.
I have got a great team of people who are just as passionate about the business as I am. Everyone from store managers to sales staff and delivery drivers are fantastic and I couldn’t do it without them.’
