One of Grimsby’s best known stores, Ramsdens Home Interiors, has announced a record-breaking summer sale for the third year in a row.
David Christy, managing director of the Ramsden Group’s retail division, said the success of this year’s month-long event had been largely down to traditional advertising and marketing campaigns coupled with a range of offers throughout the store and a clear willingness of local people to support a local business.
By the nature of our business we are always going to be in competition with out-of-town retail parks where stores seem to be forever in sale mode. People in Grimsby and the surrounding area look forward to our summer price bonanza and this year has been no different.
In the first week alone we had more than 3,000 customers visit the store and total turnover was more than double that of last year.
Sales of sofas, beds and dining furniture were especially good and one of the reasons for this must be the upturn in the housing market and the number of new homes being built in North East Lincolnshire.
This is a traditional event where we slash prices to enable us to move stock in readiness for new displays and new ranges”
