Yes a name that has been synonymous with furniture for many years has closed its doors for the last time. As the sun sets on Eddershaws Furniture it signals an end of a era. Fair play to Eddershaws for not going bankrupt or entering receivership but it is atypical of the condition of the furniture industry in the UK.
How apt is it then that Oak Furniture Land have the old store in Swansea at this local, a company born on the internet during the age of eCommerce has got all its ducks in a row as is embraces the internet channel fully.
It is sadly something that Eddershaws never really got, the search for furniture starts online and may end up in store. The lesson taken from this should be if you have a store but don't have an online presence then your days are likely numbered.
