Carpets, Preston, laminates, Preston

These carpet salesmen owea debt of thanks to the people of Fulwood, Preston

Their first three years in business have gone brilliantly, with a hectic time just before Christmas.

Most of this has been down to the support of local people – we are really grateful,” says Michael Briggs, who, with business partner Peter Hills, opened their Black Bull Lane store in March 2013.

They offer low prices that compete with the internet – and have a total 40 years’ experience in the trade. “Our work’s nearly all been within a 10-mile radius of the shop,” says Michael, whose great grandfather first opened a carpet shop in Preston’s Miller Arcade in 1910.

“Most work is from recommendation – one job has led to another. We’ve even had to take on a member of staff, Andy Gregson, to cope.”

For many years, the two carpet fitter friends worked for Michael’s father, John, in Longridge and Garstang. “We just thought it was time to go on our own and Fulwood is densely populated and a good area to start in,” says Peter, 48, who grew up here and attended what is now Corpus Christi.

They stock a wide range of carpets, from budget and mid-range right up to luxury carpets, plus laminates, vinyls and luxury vinyl tiles. Beds are also available.

“We give excellent value for money,” says Michael, 39, of Ingol. “I can’t believe how much some places get away with charging but we want to be a carpet shop people trust. We know when we have priced a job that people have a good deal. We are not in it for the short-term. We rely on word-of-mouth to grow – and we want our customers to be our friends.”

The pair work on a two-day turn-around from the order to having the carpet installed.

They offer a personal service – supplying the underlay and doing the fitting themselves, being happy to move furniture.

They do measures at the customer’s convenience – in the evening if necessary. Clients include letting agents Easthams & Co.

Matt Eastham of Easthams & Co, Fulwood, Preston

Over 30 years we have used several carpet suppliers and I can honestly say the best are M. Briggs. Nothing is too much trouble and every job is spot on. Most important is the superb feedback from our landlords.
