Established 1946



From our first store in Brentgovel Street, Bury St Edmunds, opened by father and son Jerry and Leslie Glasswell in 1946, we’ve grown to become East Anglia’s largest family-run furniture store. Today, under the direction of Jerry’s grandson Paul, we continue to apply everything we have learnt over the years from our unique heritage, offering a special shopping experience that is second to none.
