For many years Pennells Carpets has had retail outlets in both Uckfield and Heathfield. Now the family run business has chosen to focus on Heathfield where it has been successfully trading since 1982. The company’s warehousing will be moving to a new location just north of Eastbourne where there will be a trade counter offering everything people need for their carpet and flooring projects. Their contract team will continue to serve the needs of current and new contract flooring clients.

Julian Pennells, who has been in the flooring industry both as a fitter and in sales since he left school over 35 years ago, explains: “After nearly 30 very busy years in Uckfield we have decided to take on a new challenge and move our entire retail business to our Heathfield shop while expanding our contract flooring division and trade counter outlet from a larger, more densely populated location just north of Eastbourne.”

“The retail team still includes the familiar faces of Chris Shaw and Stephen McLellan who have been part of our sales team for over 20 years and have both worked in both our Uckfield and Heathfield stores over the years. Their wealth of knowledge will help customers with all of their flooring needs along with myself. We are supported by Amy Lewis who joined the team nearly four years ago.”
