A few words about us

We started in 1954 as an ex-army and navy store in our original premises Fort Street, Douglas. This developed supplying bedding & linen, workwear, school uniforms and liesure clothing. The local tourist trade was then the back bone of the local econemy with guest houses, hotels, IOM Steam Packet and Healthservice being our main contracts at the time.

The carpet section started in 1962 from simply providing small rugs and runners then larger room size rugs before supplying and fitting rooms.

We continued to grow the business on the flooring side until in 1998 when we needed new premises.(The old shop has now been developed by the wonderful Miles and Pipa into Noa Bakehouse.) The new site now takes three units over 16500sq feet stocking 600 rolls of carpet 150 rolls of vinyl and 1000's m2 of Amtico, Moduleo  VLF & Karndean as well as rugs mats and runners.
