In 1955, our family business Bold Street Beds was born, and opened in the historic city of Preston. In that time we have loyally served our customers, always offering the highest quality service, and the widest choice of beds, and mattresses and bedsteds.
As L.P. Hartley wrote, “The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.” In 1955, people led much less hectic lives, and according to records used to average 7 ½ hours sleep a night, compared to an average of just 6.5 hours in 2001. Despite this discrepancy, sleep remains a vital part of life, and it has never been more important to invest in good quality sleep!
Although Bold Street Beds has maintained its reputation as offering the finest range, for example our Tempur and Sealy mattresses, and continues to boast the best experts; how far have we come since 1955, and how have we remained the premier bed store?
60 years ago, the choice of mattress was more limited, but in 2015 we are pleased to be able to offer a huge range of the latest sleep technology, from open coil, latex and pocket sprung, to memory foam. We are also able to offer four floors of show rooms to showcase our wealth of brands and choices of beds and mattresses.
In 1955, people were more confined to shop in a small local area. We are proud to serve the people of Preston, but equally excited to be able to offer our services to customers accessing our store from further afield.
Additionally, it is possible to access our whole range of quality beds online, as well as mattresses from the likes of Tempur, Sealy, Hypnos and more! Embracing technology has enabled us to adapt to the needs of our customers, making us the number one choice.
As research on sleep and orthopaedics has advanced, we have invested in our sleep experts, who are qualified to provide you with the best advice and care on the mattress and bed to suit your specific requirements.
With the advent of the internet, we are now only a click away from helping you to choose your perfect cosy match! We have never been easier to contact, either through our website, Twitter or Facebook, or simply by Googling “Preston bed shop”! Online service has transformed the way we are able to operate, bringing you easy to use functions such as quizzes to help you determine your sleep needs, and our Bed M.O.T to help you determine if the life of your mattress has expired!
Who could have imagined in 1955 that we could offer free next day delivery within 30 miles of our store to online customers? We are delighted to remain serving the needs of our customers after 60 wonderful years in business, and look forward to the next 60 years of loyal customers, new changes and technology!
