Flooring retailer Tapi Carpets has revealed it plans to launch 17 new stores next year as it has recently reached its 50 store milestone.

Tapi Carpets & Floors, which was founded by Martin Harris, formerly of Carpetright, in 2015, has now opened 50 stores across the country, with a further three to open this year – two in Norfolk and one in Berkshire.

Branches at Pierpoint Retail Park in King’s Lynn, Sweet Briar Retail Park in Norwich and Bath Road Retail Park in Slough will take the company up to 53 when they officially open later this year.

Tapi Carpets has been on a major store roll-out operation since its launch and now plans to expand its estate across the UK, with eight Scottish outlets, eight English locations and one unit in Wales.

In 2017, Tapi will open in Bangor, Bishopbriggs, Carlisle, Chester, Crewe, Dumbarton, Dundee, Dumfries, Greenock, Hermiston Gait, Keighley, Leith, Nottingham, Stirling, Truro, Walsall and Warrington.
