Blackburn sofa firm in brand relaunch

A BLACKBURN sofa store will be relaunched on Boxing Day as its parent company eyes a record year for sales.

CSL, in The Peel Centre, Whitebirk Industrial Estate, will be rebranded as Sofaworks, with a host of family-friendly activities on Boxing Day.

Sofaworks, established by the Tyldesley family in 1984 as a single store near Burnley, remains wholly-owned by the family and employs more than 700 people.

For the first time, it has also developed its own line of sofas and will stock exclusive product ranges.

Chris Teale, manager of Sofaworks’ Blackburn store, said: “This is not just a name change.

Customers will really notice the difference when they walk into the new store.

“We are open on Boxing Day, when there will be some fun family activities and the chance to win a holiday.”

A host of Sofaworks stores are being launched as the retailer prepares to unveil record results, with turnover up 17 per cent over the course of the year.

Sales for the year to December 31 are on target to top £100 million for the first time.

Soon got a result but never again ...

Why do firms and people always say they will deliver or they want whatever in time for Christmas,when there's a good chance of something being spilled or food dropped on it,surely it wiser to purchase it after Christmas,plus you could probably negotiate a better deal

Bought a 3 piece suite off them last year, bought the warranty off them. The coating has started coming off where your head rests. Contacted them, sent them picture and more pictures. The firm are still not for repairing it, i wouldn't deal with every again set of cowboys. The suite cost £2800 so it wasn't cheap. Although i do feel ripped off by them. In my opinion go somewhere else. That's my opinion
