Following the retirement of its owner Ken Forrest, Glasgow retailer Forrest Furnishing has been bought by Sterling Furniture. According to Herald Scotland, the deal creates a £60m business that employs 600 staff.

Forrest's profits grew after it sold its Macdonald Furniture Galleries showroom, refurbishing its remaining store on South Street with the proceeds.

Forrest employs 65 of these. Its MD Graham Spurr is to continue running the business.
