The business was established in 1974 as a re-upholstery service operating from a small shop in Mill Street Crewe. Gradually retail sales were introduced until we moved to our current site in Mill Street Nantwich in 1994. Webb House Furnishers occupies a Grade2 listed building in the heart of the historic town of Nantwich.This curved three-storey red-brick building was built in the early to mid 19th Century. It has had many guises over the years, having previously been used as a bakery and until 1990 as Challinor’s Hardware store The showroom covers over 10,000 square foot over 2 floors, with a warehouse at the rear and car parking for 10 vehicles. We have now established ourselves as a retail furnishers, showcasing a magnificent display of lounge suites, dining sets, recliner sofas and chairs, beds and bedroom furniture. My wife Joan had joined the business around 1987 after a successful career in food retailing and we managed steady growth from that time. We joined the Association of Independent Stores (AIS) in 2003 and that gave us a further boost to continue our growth. We were joined by our children Yvette, Neil and Rebecca in the following years to establish the strong family business that we have today.
