Peter Lynas dies

Peter Lynas, Lanarkshire flooring retailer, died on 22 September.

Lynas saw the Hamilton retailer, founded in 1826, join the Metro buying group in 1985 and spent many years as a board member supporting independent retailers within the group.

He also spent many years working on behalf of the Carpet Foundation, again supporting fellow independent retailers.

‘I first met him nearly 20 years ago in my early days at Brintons. Despite me not allowing him to have a Brintons account, he was always very welcoming and friendly whenever we met. I have had the great fortune and pleasure to spent much time with him during my 11 years at Metro,’ says Steve Depport, Metro Group operations manager.

‘Peter was one of the great characters in the carpet trade and overall a really great person. Everyone at Cormar Carpets sends his family our condolences,’ says Carl Quall, Cormar Carpet Company regional sales manager.
