New Peter Tyson Super Store Set For Opening Weekend
Carlisle appliance firm, Peter Tyson have already seen huge success at their new premises on Shaddongate.
The long-standing family business, specialising in audio visual technology and appliances, has been growing steadily over the last 50 years. The first opening evening of their new superstore saw hundreds of shoppers through the door to snap up the latest in cutting-edge equipment.
The new site, which has undergone a complete refurbishment, brings together the two former Carlisle Peter Tyson stores in one outstanding space. It also provides new facilities for office staff and extra warehousing space, to support the internet side of the business.
Matthew Tyson explained: “We’ve been in our previous premises for 35 and 40 years respectively in the two buildings. With our popularity on the internet and the increase in sales, we needed more space to do our brand justice, to be able to do demonstrations to show our equipment at its best.
“It’s potentially the best retail store for our type of equipment in the country, it’s quite a place.”
The store stocks best selling bands such as Bose, Samsung and Sony, alongside home appliances and an impressive DJ store. They have also invested in a large selection of demonstration stock which seems to have gone down well with bank holiday shoppers.
Matthew said: “The response has been superb, we have only just opened the doors in the last few weeks, but it has already been fantastically busy. Our first opening evening on bank holiday weekend was incredibly well supported, we had a couple of hundred people through the door and it was really busy in all departments.”
As well as continuing to expand the business online, the new space will allow the company to introduce even more brands and offers, moving forward.
Matthew added: “It’s exciting times ahead for us.”
The new Peter Tyson store is located at Shaddongate, Carlisle, CA2 5TE. The opening weekend takes place between 4th-6th November
Open Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5.30pm.
