Scottish independent bed retailer The Good Sleep Company has reported that sales are ‘ahead’ of expectations and it has launched a new gift shop within its store.
Officially opened back on 5 August 2016, The Good Sleep Company revealed that sales are 20% ahead of what was initially forecast for the first 13 weeks of trading, and that the store has been so busy it has dedicated a space for a new gift shop, which has seen instant success.
Owned by duo Scott and Jill Birnie, the company has also had to expand its storage capacity to cope with increased demand from customer orders.
Managing director Scott told Cabinet Maker: “We’ve now been trading for 13 weeks and things are going really well. We’ve been well received locally and have been so busy that we’ve already had to extend our storage capacity.
“The biggest development is that we have also opened a gift shop within the shop and it is trading really well in the run up to Christmas. Sales are up 20% against our initial forecast for the first three months, which is just great.”
Adding to its success, The Good Sleep Company unveiled its new signage on the shop front, as well as announcing upcoming plans as Christmas draws closer.
Scott added: “Our beautiful new sign went up a couple of weeks ago and we also had a Christmas shopping preview evening. We will probably have a sale preview evening in December as well as having the traditional January sale. It’s great to finally look like a permanent member of the high street.”
The Good Sleep Company, which specialises in beds and mattresses from renowned suppliers including Silentnight from its 2,400sq ft premises, is situated on High Street in Banff, Aberdeenshire.
