ScS exits fitted-flooring market

ScS has released about £30m of flooring sales to other retailers by exiting the fitted-flooring market.

The move is the first significant product development at the chain since it was bought by Italian upholstery retailer Poltronesofà for £99.4m last October.

In the past financial reporting periods ScS had streamlined its flooring offer to improve competitiveness and upped in-store sales conversion rates by 7%.

Poltronesofà’s move has seen it place a higher emphasis on sofas and comes as Steve Carson, ScS chief executive, steps down after three years in the role.

Flooring has not been abandoned entirely by the chain: it still lists a choice of 129 rugs online. This is the only reference to flooring online.
