We’re celebrating 10 years in business at the Junction Retail Park in Hull – with five staff members having been with the store since it opened a decade ago.

Sales Adviser James Bentley, Office Manager Jane Clarke, Office Administrator Katie Tottem and cleaners Simone and Karla Frame have all worked for the store since it opened in 2005.

Store manager Imran Tai, who has worked for us for 15 years and managed the Hull store for two, said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating a decade in business. We have many regular customers from Hull and the surrounding area and it’s been a pleasure to serve them.”

As a family-owned company, we set up our first store on Teesside in 1946 and now have nine stores across the UK, making us one of the largest family-owned furniture retailers in the country.

Our Managing Director, James Barker, said: “Our Hull store is a huge success and this is largely due to the fantastic team we have on the shop floor.”

Imran Tai added: “Barker and Stonehouse is a great company to work for, which is why so many of us have been here at the Junction Retail Park store for as long as we have. Here’s to another ten!”

The store stocks a wide range of internationally renowned brands, including Natuzzi and Tempur, alongside iconic British brands Vi-Spring, Parker Knoll and Duresta.
