Homebird Interiors have opened a fourth store in the North West following a funding package from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Homebird Interiors purchased their first site in Wilmslow in 2008 and have grown the business across Altrincham and Cheadle Hulme with their latest store opening in the vibrant town of Heswall.
An undisclosed funding package from long-term banking partner, the Royal Bank of Scotland, has assisted the company to expand the business creating nine local jobs.
Homebird Interiors is run by two sisters, Miriam Templeton and Darrell Whittaker.
Heswall is already reporting positive sales figures with a predicted turnover expected to reach £2.5-£3million at year end for all four stores. Nine staff have been recruited as a result of the latest opening, taking the total headcount to 35 employees across the group – this is a mixture of part-time and full-time staff.
Miriam Templeton, Director of Homebird Interiors Ltd, said:
“We are delighted to open our new store in Heswall, a town we are familiar with and pleased to return to. So far the interest has been incredible and our sales figures reflect this. October is always a busy month for us anyhow as our customers like to receive their furniture and accessories in time for the festive season, coupled with us offering something new and different to the local community, we couldn’t be more pleased.
“Michele Fynan at the Royal Bank of Scotland has played such an integral part in our journey from inception to date as she continues to support us and help us expand the Homebird Interiors brand. We are lucky to have her on our side and appreciate all her efforts.”
Michele Fynan, Relationship Manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, responded:
“I’ve known Miriam and Darrell for many years now and feel very proud at what they continue to achieve. They are a local business doing really well and have an incredible eye for detail with regards to securing the right premises and maximising every opportunity. I am sure Heswall will serve them well and provide an exciting future.”
Homebird Interiors is well known for providing a mix of furniture, lamps, rugs, candles and many decorative items uniquely presented to offer their customers a source of inspiration. The new outlet on Telegraph Road has become one of Homebird Interiors flagship stores and is no stranger to Miriam and Darrell as they previously used to operate out of this store when they owned and ran the successful Househop Plc group of five retail stores, before selling this company in 2007.
