History

 

Established in 1983, Pickthornes is a Family run business

 

The history of Pickthornes Ltd started in 1983, having purchased the shop situated in 5 Elm Park, Ferring, and starting the business Pickthorne DIY, Roger and Mary Pickthorne incorporated Kitchens into the rear warehouse, where existing stock was being held for the DIY shop. A sign was often seen in the window saying ‘Please help yourselves to brochures… ‘NO not the kitchen units’, as it was often un-attended.

With the kitchen business taking off, the warehouse was transformed into a kitchen showroom, with kitchens from Symphony being placed on display. We are still today members of the Symphony group, and said to be one of the company’s oldest retailers.

Over the years the showrooms have changed, to include bathrooms, as well as bedrooms. Today you will find a wide display of kitchens from Symphony and Crown,  with modern gloss wood and oyster kitchens to more traditional solid wood, as well as  bedrooms, and walk in showers, fitted bathroom furniture, and illuminated mirrors.

Pickthornes have no high pressure sales staff, just knowledgeable people with many years experience in advising, designing, and fitting kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. From the first meeting in either your home or at our showroom, Pickthornes will guide you through an amazing choice to design the room that is absolutely right for you, and at the right price.

The majority of our business comes from recommendations and repeat business, we feel sure you will enjoy dealing with a local family business with modern ideas and traditional values. We are also proud members of CheckaTrade.  We have weekly deliveries from major suppliers, and we can also supply our kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms for delivery only either rigid or flat packed.

We look forward to seeing you soon in our kitchen, bedroom and bathroom showrooms, located in Ferring near the  railway crossings, where you will be welcomed with parking and a cup of tea or coffee.

We are this year pleased  be celebrating 30YEAR’S of successful business in the Kitchen, Bathroom, and Bedroom industry, and myself and the team are looking forward to continuing to providing excellent service and quality products from market leading manufactures at affordable  prices.
