Frank’s the Flooring Store has invested in a fleet of new vans as it continues to grow its presence as one of the North East’s best known retailers.
The six new vehicles will ensure the Frank’s brand is as familiar a sight on the region’s roads as it is on high streets and retail parks across the North-East.
Livery on the vans will highlight the growing range of products on offers in the company’s 25 stores, including carpets, vinyl, wood, rugs, beds, and artificial grass.
Frank’s stores are supported by warehousing that can hold more than three million square metres of flooring and the vans provide a key part of the network that delivers and installs these products to customers across the region.
The investment comes as preparations continue for the opening of the new, larger Consett store, and following the opening of the 25th Frank’s store in Cramlington earlier this year.
Frank’s business development manager Mick Copeland said: “Frank’s the Flooring Store is about more than simply an in-store experience and market leading prices, it is about the full service, from walking through the doors of the shop to speedy delivery and quality fitting.
“That’s why we are investing not only in our stores, but in this fleet of vans, which is an important part of our network.
“We have also invested in bringing in new products, such as luxury vinyl tiles and artificial grass, both of which are becoming increasingly popular, and the new vans will carry that message around the region’s roads, reinforcing our position as a one-stop-shop for all types of flooring.”
