Oxfordshire’s oldest independent bed business celebrated its 30th anniversary last week with the official launch of its new showroom, in the company’s hometown of Abingdon.

Abingdon Beds & Interiors has moved from its landmark corner of Spring Road into new premises a mile down the road to a new retail warehouse on Marcham Road.

The move is the first in the company’s history since Howard and Angela Alsworth opened the business in 1987, with just two staff.

Now a team of six, the company remains in the family with the couple’s sons, Ashley and Gareth Alsworth, at the helm.

The new 7,000 square foot premises has allowed the business to extend its range, with extra customer parking to boot.

Gareth said: “We have been on the corner of Spring Road for the past three decades and during that time we have built up a great reputation across Oxfordshire. The move is the start of an exciting era for the business.”
