CEO Nick Fox said: “During the last two years we have invested heavily on improving our store and online experience.

“With forced closure for months during the pandemic, a brand-new fireplace department was created and industry leading new furniture and accessories department.

“We also recognised the changing shift in how people furnish their homes, so we filled a gap in the market with a new concept of furniture and furnishings for smaller spaces with a new department called Modern Living.

“Much has changed since our first site opened in 1947, but Housing Units still remains a family business that cares and is committed to providing great service, quality, choice and value.

“Home is still very strongly at the heart of what we do, and we are constantly searching to bring our customers “The Perfect Everything for the Home”.”
