Archers Stirling Bed Shop Now Open
Our Stirling Bed Superstore, at Springkerse Retail Park opened on Saturday to a fantastic fanfare. Greg Summers our resident DJ pumped out the volume, Stuart Purdie doubling as the Silentnight Hippo danced through the streets, and what with the ice cream van, all that was missing was a childrens egg and spoon race. Our opening promotion was 20% off everything from Silentnight and Sealy which really did work a treat. But it was interesting to see what else sold in quantity. In particular our new Kaymed memory foam mattresses which were laid out in the store unencumbered by clearance models which has previously confused the foam story through all our branches. Our new 6ft superking leather bed was another big winner in both senses of the word.
Overall, modesty apart, I can faithfully say that the Stirling bed displays were awsome. Brand new point of sale, brand new stock, new pillow displays, improved lighting and a laser like attention to detail from the manager, Gerry Wilson and his team. Made me very proud.
And the customer reaction from the Stirlingshire folk? Very, very positive. A big sales day to boot.
After the store finally closed I jumped on my push bike and cycled the 8 miles or so to Sterling Mills at Tillicoultry. I parked up beside what could be argued Scotlands finest furniture store. I had never been before. Sterling is too up market for me to be shopping in. It was closed of course, but I gazed at the impressive facade and thought – now Stirling folks have two places to buy a bed.
