Carpet business to open shop in Uckfield High Street

Flooring specialists Fluffy Side Up are opening a shop in Uckfield High Street.

They used to have premises on the Bellbrook Estate but have, more recently, been offering a home selection service.

Now it is full steam ahead to open the shop at 75 High Street, which was previously occupied by Cuckoo, a bar, and before that Joli Couture, which is now Chapter Three at 176 High Street.

Fluffy Side Up signage went up on Thursday, the premises have been decorated, sample flooring is being laid, and the doors should open on Monday.

Owner Sebastian Bishop said the home selection business was going well but he missed having a showroom. When Carpetright closed on the Bellbrook it seemed like the right time to open one again.

All types of flooring

He said it would take a couple of months to complete displays in the shop but people would be welcome to call in from Monday to buy all types of flooring, wooden, rubber, and carpeting.

Sebastian added: “I am pleased to be opening in the heart of town, right next to Hartfields.

“I am also grateful to Chris Lawson, from Lawson Commercial, who has moved very quickly to enable me to open in the High Street. He has made it an easy transition and been a fantastically supportive agent.”
