A NEW flooring retailer is opening its doors in Basingstoke next week as coronavirus restrictions ease.

Flooring Superstore will open a brand new 5,622 square foot outlet in Basingstoke Trade Park on Monday (April 12).

The retailer has invested £150,000 in the new store which has created four new jobs for local people.

To mark the opening the superstore is running a free instore ‘Golden Ticket’ promotion which gives 145 lucky customers 15 per cent off flooring.

A further four customers who visit the store on opening day will be given £250 to spend in store and one golden ticket winner will be given £1000 to spend on flooring of their choice.

This will be Flooring Superstore’s second store in Hampshire, with another located in Havant.

Flooring Superstore Regional Manager Ian Robinson said: “Our plan this year is to open stores in large conurbations, so as the biggest town in Hampshire we couldn’t have selected a more suitable location than Basingstoke.

“We obviously had to wait until the Government set out its roadmap to recovery from Covid-19 so at the first available opportunity we are opening our doors and looking forward to welcoming the people of Basingstoke to our store.

“We are now focused on making a positive contribution to the local retail economy.”

Shoppers visiting Flooring Superstore will have access to an ‘unrivalled’ range of carpets but also a huge choice of other flooring, such as vinyl, laminate, real wood, luxury vinyl tiles, EvoCore and the ‘UK’s largest’ selection of artificial grass.

Ian says: “This means we can offer people a one-stop-shop for all their flooring needs, so they can get everything under one roof, whether its carpet for the living room, vinyl for the kitchen and even artificial grass for the garden.

“And because we started life as an online retailer in 2012 and have grown our e-commerce platform, it means we can offer online pricing to people visiting our physical stores.”

Ian adds: “We’re always happy to make donations of flooring to local good causes as our way of giving something back to areas where we receive such fantastic support through our stores.

“So, we would love to hear from charities, voluntary organisations or groups doing great work in the Basingstoke community who may need flooring for a particular project.”
