FLOORING SUPPLIER SETS NEW GOALS AFTER SUCCESSFUL 2017

Flooring retailer Walton Flooring Centre has revealed exciting growth and expansion plans for the future after an award-winning 2017.

Flooring retailer Walton Flooring Centre has revealed exciting growth and expansion plans for the future after an award-winning 2017.

The North West-based supplier of both domestic and commercial flooring celebrated a successful year last year after scooping two Retailer of The Year awards, for both the Merseyside and Knowsley regions. Following on from these achievements, Walton Flooring Centre is determined to continue its growth with a drive and determination that is unstoppable in 2018 and beyond, with growth and expansion plans for the North West and beyond.

After projecting a turnover of £2.5m by the end of last year, the centre was delighted to see the business adding over 15% to this projection, smashing a goal they were unsure they could achieve at the start of that year.

Walton Flooring Centre has gone from strength to strength and now has its sights set on opening a further three stores this year, with the aim of reaching a turnover of £8m by the end of 2019, doing this by adding stores to their portfolio in new regions such as Cheshire and Lancashire.

James Harper, Managing Director, opened his first store in Walton, Liverpool, in October 2011 and soon realised that he wanted to create a retailing format that could be rolled out across the region. He went on to open his second store in Wavertree in 2013, and soon added Burscough into the mix.

After basing its head office in Huyton, Knowsley, in 2016 and opening their fifth store on Wirral last year, achieving the two Retailer of the Year accolades has helped to recognise and reward the team for all their continued efforts.

James recognises that the business could not have grown without the support of the communities in which it is based, and he is looking to develop a structured programme of activity in 2018 that can contribute back, by offering free flooring products and fittings to local causes. Another passion for James is to develop close links with employability organisations and apprenticeship schemes to bring in young talent, that can grow as the business grows.
