Tomorrows Retail Flooring


Tapi Carpets Milton Keynes held an official opening to celebrate the chain's 100th store.

Specialist in carpets and flooring Tapi Carpets has opened its 100th store, in Milton Keynes.

A third-generation member of the Harris family, which itself has over 75 years’ experience in customer service, carpets, and flooring, Tapi CEO Martin Harris has gathered together a group of founders with a combined 200 years of experience to create a new and unique brand to revolutionise the world of carpet stores and make shopping for new flooring a joy.

In order to celebrate the opening of its 100th brick and mortar store, from 2nd-7th August Tapi offered all visitors to the new Milton Keynes an exclusive deal: customers received up to 50% off a choice of products, followed by another 50% off their bill at the till (excluding fitting). The result is a saving of up to 75%.

Paul Brown, Branch Manager of the new Milton Keynes location, commented: “Being named manager of the hundredth store is an incredible honour and one that I and the whole team are excited about.”

Martin Harris, CEO of Tapi Carpets, adds: “Someone once told me that the only thing more boring than watching paint dry was carpet shopping, so I set out to change the process. At Tapi, we place our customers firmly at the centre of everything we do - and it works! To be opening our hundredth store, when big retail giants are closing, confirms that we are ticking the right boxes, and we will continue to do this as we grow. Everything from our products to our staff and in-store experience is different from the norm, and we are excited to bring that uniqueness to Milton Keynes.” 

The launch was heralded by a six-day event featuring a town crier, testimonials from “floored” members of the public, and a ceremonial ribbon-cutting by CEO Martin Harris. During the event, the store will be open until 8pm every weekday. The new branch is located at Unit C, Routeco Retail Park on Snowdon Drive, MK6 1BN.
