NBF Awards – Bed Retailer of the Year – Runner Up
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Runner-up in the National Bed Retailer of the Year 2017/ 18 category at the prestigious National Bed Federation (NBF) Awards. The Competition was strong with entries from up and down the country, making this an impressive acheivement considering The Carriage has been trading for just over 18 months with no retail or bed industry experience prior to this.
With our focus on offering high quality beds and mattresses from premium brands including Somnus, Hypnos, Hilary Devey and Kaymed this has been an important factor in securing the award, as well as being determined to offer customers unrivalled customer service.
It goes without saying that our partnership with Somnus (part of the Leeds -based Harrison Spinks family) has helped us to illustrate our passion for promoting local beds, hand-crafted in Yorkshire. This has proved a real winner with our customers who often feel strongly about supporting local businesses and has helped to boost turnover during the first trading period.
We now showcase 16 of Somnus’s beds & mattresses in our impressive 3,000 sq foot showroom, which is the biggest range on display anywhere in Yorkshire.
