Sales and profits climbed for the privately-owned retail and wholesale group behind the Wilsons Carpets fascia in 2017–18.


The Rotherham based company — Wilsons Furnishers (Holdings) — posted net profits up 20 percent to £1.17 million as it built out revenue to £22.5 million, up by a quarter on the previous year.

There are more than a dozen Wilsons Carpets stores located across Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, selling all types of flooring and, in some units, beds.

The figures, for the year to end September 2017, show that growth was aided by a 13 percent leap in sales to Generation Flooring, an online floorcoverings retailer with management in common trading the onlinecarpets.co.uk ecommerce website.
