About Salisbury Carpet Company
In light of the downturn Jamie started looking for an everyday product that he could promote in a new or more effective way to the general public. 18 months later following extensive research and a chance encounter he decided to venture into carpet retailing. Having already experienced this business from the customer’s perspective he realised there was scope for much improvement. “My experience had been that you either bought carpet purely on price – i.e this is the cheapest carpet we have available in this colour or style, or if you selected any form of quality carpet it was “retail” and that’s the price!
“Our aim when we set up “Salisbury Carpet Company Limited” on the 7th January 2010 was (and still is!) to do everything better. We choose the best products, negotiate the best buying prices, work with the best and most competent fitters and offer friendly, informed and honest advice”
Prior to Salisbury Carpet Company, I had a very successful career as a shareholding director of 3 property development companies carrying out work as an interior and landscape designer for private clients.
Using my interior design knowledge and property experience I am able to help customers with colour schemes and explain how to set the “mood” of their environment.
I have a wealth of front of house experience and first encountered Salisbury Carpet Company as a customer. I was so taken with the quality and level of service that I joined the company immediately afterwards.
I have an eye for interiors and enjoy working closely with customers to ensure that they select the right carpet and flooring which will really enhance their homes and complement their lifestyles.
Before joining Salisbury Carpet Company I worked as an Operations & HR Manager in a number of sectors including financial services, telecommunications and a disability charity.
During my career, I have also worked on a number of home renovation projects so I am well versed with choosing colour schemes, furnishings and flooring options for our customers.
