David Vokins, MD of large independent retailer Vokins Furniture & Beds, based in Hove, East Sussex, has announced that the business will close early this year.

After 132 years of trading in Brighton and Hove, Vokins is closing to make way for the redevelopment of the Sackville Trading Estate. Vokins began selling off its entire stock in a sale which began on 27th December.

"We would like to thank all our customers for their support over many years," says David. "It has been our privilege to serve you."
