Bensons for Beds is moving into a new 5500 sqft store in Workington, Cumbria – at Risman Place, Washington Square shopping centre.

The store opens on Thursday 21st October, and replaces the existing Bensons store on Workington’s Derwent Howe Industrial Estate, which has been its home since 1999. The new store was previously occupied by Laura Ashley.

Bensons’ MD for retail, Alan Williams, says: “Workington is a great location for us, and we’re very excited to have the opportunity to move into the town centre, making it more convenient for customers to come in and have a look at our ranges and get advice from our colleagues."

The store will employ four members of staff, and will be run by manager Andrew Dixon, who has been with the business for 20 years.
