Renowned Merseyside flooring retailer, Bogans Carpets is celebrating its 70th birthday this month.
The family run business was set up in 1948 by Lawrence and Alice Bogan and was initially located on Park Road, in the Dingle area of Liverpool. The husband and wife duo started by selling patchwork carpets made from off-cuts.
In the 60s, the store moved to New Bird Street following investment from other family members. In 2006, the site was sold to make way for apartments and saw the business move to its current site on Great Howard Street.
Since then, Bogans Carpets has gone from strength to strength with father and son Peter and Nik Burrows at the helm.
Despite turbulent periods in the economy, the business has continued to expand and now has two additional superstores; one on Claughton Road, Birkenhead which opened in 2011 and another on Parkgate Road, Two Mills which opened in 2015.
The company has also diversified its offering by selling laminate, hardwood and vinyl flooring, in order to meet customer demand and keep ahead of trends.
Manager, Nik Burrows said: “Bogans Carpets has been proudly owned and run by our family for three generations.
“Over the years, we have overcome stiff competition from big retail chains and online businesses mainly because we offer permanently low prices all year round and beat any like for like quote.
“Customer satisfaction is at the core of what we do and we don’t turn anyone away, no matter the size of the job – we believe this is a big part of our success.”
To commemorate the special occasion, Bogans Carpets is holding an anniversary sale and will also be hosting an exclusive competition on its Facebook page.
Bogans Carpets supplies and installs over 300 floors each week to homes across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales. It also works with a range of businesses such as bars and restaurants, schools and colleges, hotels, hospitals and office developments.
Nik added: “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate such a significant milestone and we’d like to thank our customers and also the flooring manufacturers who have supported us over this time.”
