A well-known bed store in Peterhead has been acquired by the owner of Ellon Indoor Market.
Located on the town’s Marischal Street, Danny Buckle has taken the reins at Mr Beds following the retirement of the previous owner after 18 years running the business.
Danny said: “When the chance to take over Mr Beds in Peterhead came up, and already having experience of selling beds at Ellon Bed Emporium, it made perfect sense; extending the company’s range of bedroom furniture, while still providing the same level of service to the local community and beyond that customers have come to expect.
“This is a great opportunity to expand our range of products and services currently on offer and, by having the two companies working together, we can ensure both stores’ customers receive even better value for money, and faster delivery times.”
With eight years’ experience in the furniture industry under his belt, this acquisition marks a natural step forwards for Danny, who understands the importance of the customers’ retail experience and aftersales care.
He added: “I had been looking to open up my own bed store to move away from selling beds at the indoor market as I didn’t want to create confusion between the two establishments.
“The opportunity to take on Mr Beds was exactly what I was looking for and means I can now supply furniture to furnish an entire bedroom, as opposed to just offering bed frames and mattresses.”
