Retailer celebrates 75 years of business

Having grown from a builders' merchants into one of UK’s leading destinations for the home, Housing Units is celebrating 75 years of business in 2022. 

CEO Nick Fox comments: “During the last two years we have invested heavily on improving our store and online experience.

"With forced closure for months during the pandemic, a brand-new fireplace department was created, and an industry-leading new furniture and accessories department. We also recognised the changing shift in how people furnish their homes, so we filled a gap in the market with a new concept of furniture and furnishings for smaller spaces, with a new department called Modern Living.

"Much has changed since our first site opened in 1947, but Housing Units still remains a family business that cares and is committed to providing great service, quality, choice and value. Home is still very strongly at the heart of what we do, and we are constantly searching to bring our customers 'The Perfect Everything for the Home'."

Housing Units, known for its top-hatted doormen, was established in 1947.

The family-owned furnishings retailer, based in Failsworth to the north of Manchester, stocks some 30,000 lines across a range of departments in two buildings, and prides itself on its unique style of customer service, the quality and value of its goods, and the shopping experience it provides.
