Company History and Background
Bucks Carpets has been owned and managed by the same family for almost fifty years.
The beautiful Art Deco building that houses the retail and contract business, was built as the corner unit of the Royalty Parade in Bourne End and opened as a live show theatre and cinema on New Year’s Day in 1934. At the height of its popularity it could seat 600 people. It continued to be run as the Royalty Cinema until 1959 when sadly it closed. In 1962 it changed hands and was run as a furniture store until the late 1960’s after which it was taken over by the current owners.
The founder members of Bucks Carpets ensured that a solid foundation was set for the running of the business, which now services a broad spectrum of customers, including domestic and commercial clients.
Now owned and run by the second and third generation, the Directors pride themselves on the service given and the professionalism of the sales team built up over many years.
A major renovation of the building has now been concluded and the store has been expanded internally with a beautiful new mezzanine bed showroom accessed by either stairs or a newly installed lift. The whole store has been updated and is now fully DDA compliant and air conditioned throughout.
Our Huge Showroom/Warehouse, with Free Customer Parking, provides an unrivalled selection of Carpets, Flooring, Rugs & Beds all at Top Discount Prices.
