As we all know our economy has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. The furniture industry is no exception to this. All furniture stores were forced to close down for several months with virtually no money coming in.
Although all furniture stores are now open and sales are on the up there is still much uncertainty. There could be a second pandemic and most furniture manufacturers are not running on full capacity. In recent manufacturing industry surveys, feedback worryingly indicates that 40-50% of companies are considering redundancies across their work forces. Many retailers too will be looking closely at costs.
But as we stated before sales are up the last few months and to maintain this momentum the campaign Buy British Furniture Event has been set up to make you aware that it is important to support British businesses and in particular British furniture stores and manufacturers.
At John Long Furniture Centre we offer a range of British manufactured furniture. We have a quality collection of sofas, dining room furniture, beds and bedroom furniture for sale. We have made adjustments to our store to keep you and us safe. Come and visit us at our Swansea furniture store or contact us if you have any questions.
