It was 11 years ago this week that we decided to change the centre’s name slightly from GB Antiques Centre to GB Antiques and Furniture Centre.
The demand for furniture became more and more prominent throughout the business and we realised to keep up with demand we would need more space and more furniture dealers. 11 years on and this trend has never waned.
Furniture is a huge proportion of the antiques business. So much so that my son, Jimmy, now manages the furniture department, on a full time basis.
