All Iceland stores to reduce opening hours and offer 2 hours for elderly customers only



Iceland stores across Crawley are to reduce their opening hours Mon-Sat to only 8 hours a day.

In addition the chain has set aside 2 hours every Wednesday morning for elderly senior citizens only.

The time for elderly has been set by each store but is from 10-12 for most of them.

Each store is making its own decision which 8 hours of the day they will be opening with most of the larger stores in the town choosing 10am till 6pm.

Sunday trading is not affected.

There are three Iceland stores in Crawley, one on Haslett Ave, one in Broadfield Barton and one at the Queens Sq in the town centre.

A press statement from Iceland is due shortly.


Furniture Village opens its doors in Crawley’s County Oak Retail Park



Crawley welcomes Furniture Village who will open a brand-new store in County Oak retail park this Boxing Day.

The new location offers a Carpetright concession, providing a one-stop-shop for customers looking to update their homes.

Visitors to the new Furniture Village store will be invited to create their ‘home in one’, by exploring collections for every room of the house, from sofas to beds to dining.

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments:

“With much of the UK under lockdown, I’m delighted we’ve been able to open our new store in Crawley. County Oak is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.

“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I am incredibly proud of the Furniture Village team which continues to offer industry-leading quality, choice and service. As well as Family Retailer of the Year, we’ve also been awarded National Bed Retailer of the Year so I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming customers to our new bed department.”

The store will see a team of 11 expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers, all made possible thanks to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures.

These include temperature checks, PPE for all staff and hand sanitisation stations, along with an appointment booking system which can be accessed via the website.

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, adds:

“Customer safety is still, and will continue to be, a priority for us. The feedback from all of our existing stores continues to be overwhelmingly positive, with the appointment booking system providing reassurance and exceptional service for customers.”

The store will open at 9am on Saturday 26th December 2020. Opening offers include Sale discounts of up to 50% plus an additional £50 off every £500 spent.
