Wilsons Carpets lays foundations for success in Mansfield

Wilsons Carpets is set to move into a 16,000 sq ft showroom in Mansfield.

The family business, which was originally set up by Bill Wilson back in 1968, will open its fourteenth store in the Mansfield town.

James Wilson, director of the new Mansfield branch, said: “The Wilsons Carpets brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings back in 1968.

“The new Mansfield store will be our fourteenth.  After working for the family business sweeping floors after leaving school, I have worked my way up into management.  The new store is my own venture under the Wilsons Carpets brand, and I hope to put my own stamp on things here.”

The firm currently has stores in Doncaster, Thorne, Scunthorpe, Rotherham, Barnsley, Pontefract, Gainsborough, Retford, Lincoln, Sheffield, and Hull.

The store which has seen a £165,000 investment, will be based on Great Central Road, off Ratcliffe Gate, in Mansfield.
