It’s Independents’ Day

4 July 2014

We are delighted to see the promotion of the independent retailer today in the form of Independents’ Day. Independents’ Day is a national campaign that promotes and celebrates independent businesses across the UK. As independent retailers, John Dick & Son fully support this important initiative organised by People 1st, you can read more about the campaign here.

In an age of mass production and multi-national retailing, it’s nice to see a celebration of the smaller independent retailers that highlights the wealth and depth of experience and value they offer. John Dick & Son are celebrating 60 years in the furniture trade this year, yes we’ve been selling furniture as a family business since 1954!

While we may not have the buying power of the large national retailers, we do have experience, and long established working relationships with the most admired furniture manufacturers in the UK and Europe.

Perhaps the best example of this is our long association with John Sankey, one of the finest sofa manufacturers in the world. We have a special John Sankey studio in our showroom where you can see, and try, the quality sofas they produce. In all the years we’ve been dealing with John Sankey, we’ve never had two sofas the same; every piece they manufacture is unique – something you will only find when dealing with smaller independent retailers.

Of course, 60 years experience doesn’t mean we only have excellent relationships with the best sofa makers; we have equally good relationships with the finest wall covering designers, fabric producers, and cabinet makers. And, all of these can be brought together to create a truly wonderful interior by our in-house interior design team.
