Wilson Carpets, Mansfield

A family-run flooring business in South Yorkshire has invested in a new base in Mansfield.

Wilsons Carpets was founded by Bill Wilson in 1968 and now has stores in Doncaster, Thorne, Scunthorpe, Rotherham, Barnsley, Pontefract, Gainsborough, Retford, Lincoln, Sheffield and Hull.

Its new 16,000 sq ft operation in Mansfield is one of the company’s largest. It will sell carpet, wood flooring, vinyl, rugs and even artificial grass.

James Wilson, director of the Mansfield branch, said: “The Wilsons Carpets brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings back in 1968.

“The new Mansfield store will be our 14th.  After working for the family business, the new store is my own venture under the Wilsons Carpets brand and I hope to put my own stamp on things here.”

David Bladen, director of Nottingham-based Musson Liggins, which acted on behalf of the landlord, said: “We have been delighted with the letting to Wilsons. A lot of effort went in to evicting the previous tenant and simultaneously replacing them with Wilsons on a ten year lease.”
