New store pledges women's centre support

A family-run flooring retailer has pledged to support a Stockport-based charity which supports vulnerable and marginalised women.

Kay Day, Chair of Trustees at the Stockport Women’s Centre, was asked to perform the official opening of Flooring Superstore at Portwood Court, Stockport, recently.
The company behind the 4,000 square foot store, Connecting Flooring, has invested £100,000 and created three new jobs with the opening – it’s first in the North West of England.

And it has now planning to donate flooring to the Stockport Women’s Centre.

Chris Barber, Flooring Superstore Retail Operations Manager, said: “We were delighted when the Stockport Women’s Centre accepted our offer to open our first store in the town.

“The charity does an amazing job providing services for women surviving poverty, social exclusion and sexual/domestic abuse.

“We hope this is the start of a long-term partnership with the Centre and we are already discussing how we can get the ball rolling with a donation of flooring for one of its projects.”

Kay Day said: “Our mission is to support, empower and educate women to improve their mental and physical health and well-being, enabling them and their families to have improved life chances.

“We can only do this via the fantastic backing we receive from so many different areas, and this includes donations and pledges of support.

“Partnerships with local businesses are central to this and we are thrilled that Flooring Superstore have chosen to support us.”

The Stockport Flooring Superstore was the 16th to open in the UK, with a 17th, in Crewe, having also recently opened. 

The store is unique in selling an unrivalled range of carpets but also offering a huge choice of other flooring, such as laminate and luxury vinyl tiles and the UK’s largest selection of artificial grass. The latter is designed to meet the growing demand from householders for artificial, rather than real, grass.

Shoppers have access to three brands owned by Connection Flooring - Flooring Superstore, Direct Wood Flooring and Grass Direct.
