Carpetright plc (the company) is the UK’s major specialist carpet and floor-coverings retailer operating from 351 stores nationwide on both high streets and out-of-town retail parks as well as offering the customer an additional home shopping service via the Company’s fleet of dedicated vans. The Company has now also expanded into Europe following the acquisition of a floor-covering retailer trading from 90 stores in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. Each of its stores stock an enormous range of carpets and vinyl flooring and all stores also offer a selection of rugs and laminate flooring, too. Carpetright started in November 1988 with 1 store, operating from a central warehouse in Barking. The principal activity of the Company is that of selling carpets and floor coverings. As of 3 May 2003 the Company traded from 351 outlets in the UK and Southern Ireland and 90 outlets in mainland Europe.

These stores are the heartland of the business and offer the full range of roll stock carpets, cut length samples, vinyl, laminates, rugs as well as the entire floor covering accessories. At home The Carpetright at home offer trades 32 vans across the country providing an additional home shopping service to the customer who cannot travel to one of the stores or would prefer the convenience of selecting and choosing from their own home with one of the dedicated advisers and estimators. Into Europe The acquisition of the Carpetland stores in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg provide Carpetright with its first move into mainland Europe and the opportunity to take some of its successful ideas from the UK operation into a new territory at a low risk. Product The Company’s carpet offer is divided into two main categories, the roll stock business and the cut length business. The roll stock business is at the heart of the business and it continue to provide excellent value roll stock ranges at very competitive prices for the customer available all year round. The cut length business has also continued to progress well due to its 12 own brand labels, which included the launch this year of its exclusive Kosset Gold collection.
