Flooring Superstore to open 20 new stores in 2022

Flooring Superstore is planning to open 20 new stores in the UK in 2022 after launching 17 last year.

In a statement, the retailer said the shops will all be in areas where it does not currently have a presence.  Having started out as an ecommerce retailer in 2012, Flooring Superstore’s store portfolio now stands at 42, with outlets stretching from Glasgow in the north to Plymouth in the south.

Dan Foskett, founder and chief executive at Flooring Superstore, said: “Despite everything which has been thrown at the retail sector over the last few years, we have managed to continue with our store growth programme, as well as further strengthening our online presence.

“We now have coverage across the whole of the UK, but this will increase even further in 2022 as we open more stores.

“Being able to supply every type of flooring, such carpets, real wood, laminate and artificial grass, under one roof so people don’t need to shop around is definitely one of the key factors in our success, and another is being able to sell this flooring at online pricing, reflecting our origins as an ecommerce retailer.”

In addition to the investment in stores, Flooring Superstore gave away £200,000 in promotional discounts in 2021 and also donated tens of thousands of pounds worth of flooring to charities and organisations in the areas where it has stores.

It has also made a significant contribution to environmental protection by planting over five  million trees, removing one million plastic bottles from the oceans and seas, and protecting over 29,000 acres of rainforest.

Foskett added: “We are acutely aware of our responsibilities as a large national retailer and that’s why, through our corporate social responsibility programme and sustainability initiatives, we are giving something back to the communities who support us and to the planet in general.

“For example, for every order we receive in any of our stores we plant one tree. It’s small steps like this that we believe make a massive difference.”
