Bensons for Beds has taken a lease at Unit 18, Drakehouse Retail Park, Waterthorpe, Sheffield, where neighbours include Carpetright, Currys PC World and SCS. 

The new near-5000 sqft store opens on Friday 10th September, and is offering customers an additional -10% off items bought during the opening weekend. 

The store is a few yards from Bensons' previous location at Drakehouse Retail Park, which it had shared with Harveys until June last year. 

Bensons’ MD for retail, Alan Williams, says: “The new store will allow us to display our best ranges more effectively and make sure that our customers in Sheffield make the right choice.” 

The store will be run by manager Chris Carney, who has been with the business for 20 years at stores including Rotherham and Sheffield.
