We also offer a comprehensive installation service for all that we sell, freestanding and built in appliances
this includes wall mounting of TVs and networking smart products
So why shop local?
Think it's more convenient to shop elsewhere?
We think its very important to at least consider local firms
As a family firm we actively try to support other local firms for our own needs
This keeps money going around in the local economy, especially if these firms then in turn use other local firms for their own needs as well
i.e. - where you get one large store doing the business of 500 local stores - this has a major knock on effect
Just one example would be the large store will use a firm of national accountants where 500 local stores would all have used local accountants
The local accountants would then in turn have their own day to day running needs for their businesses
And accountants are just one example, every firm has many needs to operate, large firms may appear to bring in many jobs,
in reality behind the scenes they often don't as far more jobs are then lost when smaller firms & those that supply them close
Remember if cash coming into an area - stays in that area, as more cash continues to come in, the area as a whole becomes better off
( There is more & more cash going around )
& what goes around - comes around - as they say
You may even see more of it yourself
However, when cash is spent with outside firms, even with branches in the area, this is taking money out of that economy
The more money that is taken out, the less cash that area has & poorer the area becomes,
especially when more is going out than coming in.
Its just the same with countries (If you buy or import more than you sell or export)
or even with your own home finances (If you pay out more than you bring in, you have a problem building)
Outside firms are like tree's - sending roots into surrounding areas (or countries) to feed their own growth
Sorry to bore you, but we strongly believe the above to be true
Some may say the big stores employ more people than we do
We employ enough people to handle the loyal customers we have
The more customers we have - the more people we will need to do that
