Home furnishings retailer Terrys has seen its revenue more than double over the last 12 months after seeing a surge in demand during lockdown.
Terrys – which has a store in Hartshill, Stoke-on-Trent and a national website – has recorded a 109 per cent increase on last year after the pandemic led to a boom in the home and garden sector.
And the trend looks set to continue in 2021 after the family-run business secured popular homeware collections from Emma Shipley, Cath Kidston and Tess Daly. It also launched an exclusive collection with renowned designer Orla Kiely.
Paul McGuiness, managing director at Terrys, said: “It’s been a really challenging year for many industries, but we are delighted to have seen a continued demand for home furnishings during this time. The past 12 months has seen many people investing in their homes, and this is a trend that we anticipate will continue throughout the coming months.”
